  • Your best bet is you don't - replace it With that they have enamel products meant for applying over it - a lot just depends on where it is located & solving the issue that caused it

    Replace it. The "repair" for it wont last and I would hate to see the pedestal break apart while someone is using the sink.

    I would research industrial strength epoxies, years ago they used to advertise gluing really heavy things onto a wall. You would have to if possible use the injection method so you are healing the crack deeply, and not just surface. Surely whatever you use, keep your eye on it because there is stress somewhere, and it can then break somewhere else. Worth an experiment. I have things I have glued for years, others don't hold up to Florida heat and moisture. We live in a throwaway society and so many times we can repair, not jump replace for instant gratification. I admire that you are looking for a solution rather than quick to do a replacement..

    We have an old house, porcelain toilets that attach in the wall, not floor, we cracked the tank on one.......can't replace......we took it to plumbing dealer and he fixed it with some kind of epoxy and glue.......that was 6 years yes you can fix your sink. look for plumbing supply companies........

    Car bondo will fix it and hold up to wear and tear, it holds cars together through our northeastern winter with road salt on the ground six months out of the year!

    I had a crack in a porcelain sink. I used a two part epoxy product that I would at Home Depot. It comes in colors. I haven't had any problems with leakage or more cracks.

    There is a product called Rescue 911, it's a spray. U can get it in different colors one is clear. U can find it at home stores.

    There are usually companies that repair the ceramic and match the color very well....I would rather spend the $ and not notice it again
