Materials with which the product was made were changed between our first purchase in 2008 and second purchase in 2010. What started out as a great product ended up as one we'd never buy again.
We initially bought a Super Sink in 2008. It was a great piece of equipment and we absolutely loved it. For our first bicycle tour of 18 months, we used it almost daily as a laundry bucket.
After a year of constant use, leaks at the bottom seam started appearing. Nevertheless, with a bit of patching up, it served well for the remainder of the trip.
Upon returning in 2010, we purchased a second Super Sink and then embarked on another bicycle tour. The second Super Sink was so we'd have something on hand as a back-up for after the first Super Sink could no longer be patched up. We continued to use the patched up first Super Sink for another six months before ditching it and using the back-up.
Prior to throwing away the first Super Sink, we cut up and kept pieces of it to use as patches. After ONE WEEK of using the second Super Sink, it sprang leaks at the bottom seam. No amount of patching would keep the leaks at bay.
Before we tossed it a week later, we cut it apart to see if the materials were the same. They were not. The second Super Sink was made of a much thinner material and with fewer layers.
It's really too bad. What started at as an excellent product, and one which we couldn't praise enough, has turned into one which we'd never buy again.
