Never had one before, now I would not be without it in the garage. Use it for every kind of cleaning job. It's big enough and deep enough to soak big cooking pans, e.g. turkey pans at holidays. I also use a slow cooker in the winter and that gets washed in that sink. I have a really big electric grill which is my summer kitchen and that gets washed there. Loads of other uses. My other half uses it for cleaning paint brushes etc. Once you have one you find you are using it.

I have a utility tub in my laundry room and use it every day. They are soooo useful in many ways.

Thanks for everyone's feedback. We are going to include one in our laundry room which we can use for many things including filling up the dog's water bowl everyday. Almost forgot about them.

If I were building new I would put one in the laundry room with a cabinet and one in the garage as well! That way I won't make a wrong decision, lol!

The OP seems to be having a new home built. The cost of putting in a garage sink I would expect is far less than doing it after the home is finished. Should you get one and then later decide it was a bad choice, capping the pipes will be, should be, minimal cost.

You should beware of what you dump down that sink. The plumbing is plastic. Some chemicals can and will damage the plastic. Of course you would never dump gasoline or paint solvent
down there. But too many people in the real world do not always do as they should.

I paint with oils but I use linseed oil to dilute the paint. And clean the brushes with shampoo. So plumbing should be ok, plus don’t like to pollute air or water.
