Another great aspect of the copper sink is that it is overall cleaner and more sanitary than other material types. Copper is a natural elemental that contains antibacterial benefits, therefore bacteria and other harmful substances cannot hope to survive on copper. In a study performed on, stainless steel and copper, it was shown that copper is extremely sanitary by comparison. Thanks to the antibacterial benefits of copper, a bacterium that is found on the copper will not live any longer than one to two hours.

When purchasing a copper sink you will want to look for a few specific things. Make sure you consider the décor and look of your home; this will help you understand the type of copper sink you will want. Another thing is to make sure the copper sink is made by hand and not manufactured in a factory somewhere; this will help ensure that you are getting a quality copper sink for your home.

When it comes down to actually purchasing your copper sink, make certain you are purchasing a copper sink of high quality. Yes, price is an important factor for everyone today, however remember the old saying, “You get what you pay for”. This saying holds true with copper sinks as well. The cheaper a copper sink becomes, the less copper it is actually made of. Cheaper copper sinks are typically made of recycled copper, this means that the copper comes from machines or computers that used copper. This further means that the copper used in your copper sink, could only be 90% pure or even less.


  1. whites are not the only racists says:

    Talking about the plumbed in ones not jugs.

  2. im in the middle of designing my new home- a victorian style home- my bathroom is what im having trouble with- the bottom half of the walls will have copper tile-

    and the sink will be a black square pedistal and the toilet will also be black- im just not sure what color to paint the upper portion of the bathroom and what color tile- whatever tile i pick will also go into the kitchen- any ideas-

    the kitchen will have a copper sink and black granite countertops and dark mahogany cabinets

  3. first of all do you think im pretty? im just wondering because my friends think i am but my sister is always calling me ugly. i dont have a low self esteem or anything i just wanted to know someone elses opinion…..

    and about my hair… at first i really wanted to get brown and pink hair (since brown is my natural color) but i asked it as a question on here and pretty much everyone said i shouldnt do it bc pink would look bad on me. so what do you think i should do? i have already had it brown with red, blonde with copper, plain brown, and dark brown with blonde. i would like to go back brown because it makes my hair soooo much healthier looking but what else should i do to it?

    heres my hair now…

    oh and i was thinking of maybe purplish?
    like this… (not the style just the color)

  4. I’ve found I must have high acidity in my water as I’m seeing blue/green corrosion on some of my pipes and solder joints.

    I run a water softener (which removes Calcium and magnesium), however the only solutions I’m seeing in my on-line research for correcting high acidity is to ADD calcium and magnesium to back into the water?! That does not make sense to me

    So how do I correct the problem and still keep my soft water?
    I’d need a solution for the whole house, not just drinking water as the pipes are most likely being damaged. I’m not sure how a rev oz system would change acidity but prob could not afford a whole house version as it would not be practical.

  5. I can’t believe I’ve been going for years wtihuot knowing that.
