Kitchen sink.

Does anybody know why it is so difficult to find a modern TWO hole kitchen sink.I can find the old fashioned S/S sink with a two hole tap fitting but am struggling to find a modern design/material, i need a 15mm feed onto my hot tap as my system is gravity fed from my hot cylinder in the loft, the majority of sinks as you know are one hole suitable for mixer taps fed by 10mm pipes, anybody know of a good supplier of what i am looking for. Regards jim.

plumb centre or plumbco and any good plumbing merchants will be able to get you one if they have none in stock

most monobloc mixer taps actually come with 12mm tails so in comparison to 15mm pipe really does not effect the flow to the tap itself. But if it really bothers you and want two taps then any plumbing merchant can get you a two holed modern sink but you will need to go there and order it first. Good luck
