In Reply to: trailer sinks posted by skippyp on April 01, 2011 at 21:54:52:
I just really started looking into trailers and one morning began browsing over things on Ebay. A couple of weeks ago I almost went to North Carolina to buy what I thought would be a near perfect trailer for things I wanted to do. I was setting things up to go get it that weekend.
Knowing sinks needs to be able to allow you to submerge your largest cooking pot, pan or whatever I went with the idea I would use mostly disposable items leaving me with very little to need washed.
The guy with the trailer told me his trailer passed HD there with no problem and HE said it should have no problem passing here in TN too. Well I know HE is not the one inspecting this thing here so I told him since I wasn't coming out until the weekend I wanted to just check with the local HD folks to see if I was covered. Seems the HD folks here informed me that the sinks on that trailer were too small and even worse the 25 gallon fresh water tank and the 30 gallon waste were also too small for this states requirements. All would need to be replaced. Not that this has a thing to do with you question but folks need to know just because a trailer passes in one area does not mean it will in your area which is why folks here always tell others to check with your HD to see what they require. The HD can actually save you some money and headaches.
While taking the weight of water into consideration I am looking to go beyond their minimum required sizes. Rather have too much when or if needed than not enough. Allow yourself enough fresh water and waste.
Sinks I am looking into are in the 90 inch wide range with required rounded corners and fixed drain boards. Another thing to look into is your hand sink. Here they require a splash guard if it is installed near your 3 bay sink to prevent contamination from dirty hand water onto clean dishes.
I too have been looking at the site Acitydiscount and another I’d suggest is restaurantequippers.com. Also look at used restaurant equipment places near you. They may have something come in.
Good luck to ya
