What to look for when choosing?

Manufacturers supply a large number of washbasins for summer cottages, but to understand them is quite simple.

The reason is that such equipment is only different:

  • by design and operation principle;
  • according to the materials of manufacture;
  • by tank capacity.

Moreover, in all these cases there is no particular diversity. So, the design divides washstands into: bulk, with a curbstone, on a rack.

Bulk - equipment consists of only one part, which is the tank. Products with a curbstone are notable for this particular enclosed space, inside which a container for used water is placed.

In addition, their design provides for a sink. This variety has a completely modern design and hygiene, so it can be used indoors.

A wide selection of country wash basins
The choice of washbasins suitable for use in summer cottages is wide, but the most universal option is a subspecies equipped with a pedestal and made of metal treated with an anti-corrosion coating

The washstands on the counter are structurally similar to the previous view, but the space for the container with used water is not covered by the walls, aesthetic properties suffer from this. As a result, there are practically no such products on the shelves today.

The most common materials for manufacturing are: wood, plastic and metal.

Today, wooden washstands have the highest aesthetic qualities, but they are short-lived and can only be used indoors, so manufacturers use such material extremely rarely.

The design of the country wash basin
The most simple to use, transport and install are bulk washbasins. They can be hung on any vertical surface, as well as choose the optimal tank volume

Plastic products are the most affordable, and metal products are the most durable. The latter variety is distinguished by more capacious tanks. The hygienic properties of plastic and metal analogues are the same.

Water tanks can hold from 3 to several tens of liters, which allows you to purchase the right option for any situation.

  1. Denis

    So that's what my grandmother’s washstand was called, Erg-Al. This, probably, was in all villages of the Soviet Union. In general, I believe that there should be several washstands in the country, where there is no centralized water supply. One, the simplest one, made of aluminum or stainless steel in the street, in order to wash, rinse your hands or wash an apple, which is more or less decent, with heated water, for a summer kitchen, which serves more for hygienic purposes. This, it seems to me, is the best option.

  2. When we bought a summer cottage, everything was organized in a simple way in the former hostess. There was a small tank like a canister, from which water flowed by gravity into a bowl, if you unscrew the cork. Of course I wanted something more civil. We bought a washstand Aquatex. Quite a different matter. It looks nice, not bulky, and most importantly, the cost is not at all expensive. What you need for a summer residence. Of course, I really liked how wooden washstands look, very original. But the cost is appropriate for them.

      Faced with these Aquatex washbasins - the build quality is disgusting, as if they were doing in the garage. At the first start, a stream of water flowed out from under the stopcock; I had to cover it with silicone sealant. And the design itself with a fixed tank is uncomfortable.
