Kitchen Sink questions
I am in the market for a kitchen sink. I went to home depot and found this sink for $149 http://www.homedepot.com/buy/kitchen/stainless/elkay-pergola-universal-mount-stainless-steel-33x22x8-4-hole-double-bowl-kitchen-sink-hd553602.html#.UFI1MY1lQms.
On the other hand there are unbranded sinks on Amazon of better specifications for cheaper price http://www.amazon.com/Undermount-Gauge-Kitchen-Double-Stainless/dp/B004Z0PGUK/ref=sr_1_8?s=hi&ie=UTF8&qid=1347564989&sr=1-8&keywords=undermount+kitchen+sink. Is it safe to buy an unbranded sink. Also what guage should I go for. Is 20 OK? My main aim is that the sink not lose it's shine with time. So I want to go for a 304 stainless steel. Another related question, while upgrading my counter tops, the contractor will mount the undermount sink for me but will not re attach back the water supply and hoses and tells me that I will have to get a plumber to do that. Was wondering is reattaching the hoses and faucets something that I should try by myself?
