Kitchen Sink Liner/Tray???

Posted by MileHighDiva (My Page) on

I have water damage under my current kitchen sink from leaks and various plumbing issues. When my new cabinets are installed I want to protect my investment and minimize any potential damage in the future.

Has anyone used the kitchen sink liner/tray by rev a shelf? Did you feel it was worth it? It's around $60.00, is there a less expensive option? Do the TKO go bare or do they line the base of the kitchen sink cabinet?

Please share your insight and thoughts.

I have ordered this one from Driptite. It was backordered, in fact I just got an email today that ithas been shipped to me. Sorry I can't report any experience with it yet (cabinets aren't in yet anyway), but it is cheaper, plus the sides are higher.

Iroll, Thanks! $35 including s&h is better than the $60 plus tax and s&h for the one above. When your cabinets and sink base protector are installed please report back.

This is an update on the Driptite Slide n' Fit Sink & Vanity Base Protector, which was supposed to have been shipped to me.
I have never received it, and the only response I have had from the owner of the company was the false shipping information.
I tried to open a resolution through Paypal, but after jumping through their hoops and pasting all my email messages, etc., I got a message saying that this is not the sort of transaction one can dispute---?
So, I sincerely hope that no one else has placed an order with this company, or, if you did, did you receive your item?

iroll, I'm sorry to hear that you're having a service issue with the Driptite company. Thank you for warning everyone not to order from them!

You should report them on Angie's List! I'm shocked that Paypal will not assist you with this issue and/or give you your money back. If they don't get involved in these types of issues, what kind do they get involved with?

I have not ordered the rev a shelf one yet, because I ordered an under sink organizer from Amazon. I'm not sure if the screws for the organizer will be too short to secure the organizer to the sink base cabinet with the liner in between. I keep neglecting to call rev a shelf during business hours to ask about this potential issue.

I ordered a Driptite sink liner in November and never received it. I emailed the company and got no response. Do not purchase from this company!

Anyone else have any suggestions? The KraftMaid ones look great, but I don't see anything that nice for sale separately. I think the Rev-a-Shelf ones look OK, better quality than DripTite's vaporware, but it doesn't come in enough sizes, just 30, 36, and 42" (which can be cut down to 27, 33, and 39").

We have Kohler Stages 33 and 45" sinks in 36" and 48" sink bases. The sinks' drains are WAY over on the right side, so I'm using the left half of the sink base for trash pullouts. I need 18" and 24" drip trays to cover the right half of the cabinets under the drain. Or I would need 36" and 48" if I chose to cover the whole bottom; either way, the 27-42" range misses one of the sizes I need.

I am tempted to have my counter guy fab up a slab with a sloped shower pan style slab that can be caulked into the cabinet. It would have a raised lip around the periphery, then be sloped forward and toward the center and have a lip that pours over out of the front of the cabinet. Hmmmm. Temptation.

Hafele makes an undersink liner. I haven't seen it in person, but maybe someone on the forum has.

I used peel and stick vinyl tiles in the cabinet under the sink. Not glamorous, but it was a $10 job (perhaps less)! And it won't protect against major leaks, but at least it will catch any small drips from the sink, cleaning products, or loose bits of trash/recycling/compost. And, I don't feel bad cleaning it with a mop. No one looks under there but me.

Ljwrar, thank you so much!!! I too have severely damaged wood in my sink base from plumbing leaks like the OP and in my new kitchen, I want to avoid that. Short of throwing thousands of dollars into a custom slab solution to protect a $500 cabinet, this sounds awesome! I like how it can be cut to custom sizes. Maybe even fold it up in the corners?

David, if you try the Hafele liner, please let us know how it works out. Lisa

I have Rutt cabinets and they came with a sink cabinet liner installed for me. From the looks of the Hafele liner linked above, I think that is the one that I have. It looks and works great.

Lisa, I certainly will try to remember to report back, though in all honesty, I'm terribly forgetful.

Blue Devil, thanks for your report!
