I love those architecture nuances from country to country.

In Brazil double laundry sinks are still quite normal and triple laundry sinks can be seen, specially in southern and northeast Brazil.

Obviously, with automatic washers the number of triple laundry sinks reduced a lot, but some people still put them in new houses.

Usually they have different non-related to laundry uses (one of the sinks usually has a built in washboard) but overall, it's related to the brazilian culture of "OCD sorting" the clothes and also soaking and spotting before putting in the washer.

I believe these are called a Soapstone laundry tub....usually all metal...and heavy...

I had a double in my first house....came in handy more than you know...

our washer drained into a pipe, but I would put the drain hose into the tub, so I could hear the gushing water and knew where the cycle was at during the cycle...

yes, there was a scrub board built in to the left sink...

One of the reasons i chose the apartment i live was the laundry sink LOL

Anf if I could, i'd have a triple one installed.

Specially for people that have several washers (like us) the laundry tubs can also work as expansion tanks to prevent sewer overload with several washers draining at the same time.

Here, for example, i can have 8 washers draining exactly at the same time (3 in stand pipe and the rest in the sink). It's great to see the laudnry sink filling to near the top and draining ina controlled manner, and I don't need to move a finger.

I'll never have a flood YAY!
