A sink—also known by other names including sinker, washbowl, hand basin and wash basin—is a bowl-shaped plumbing fixture used for washing hands, dishwashing, and other purposes. Sinks have taps (faucets) that supply hot and cold water and may include a spray feature to be used for faster rinsing. They also include a drain to remove used water; this drain may itself include a strainer and/or shut-off device and an overflow-prevention device. Sinks may also have an integrated soap dispenser.
When a sink becomes stopped-up or clogged, a person will often resort to use a chemical drain cleaner or a plunger, though most professional plumbers will remove the clog with a drain auger (often called a " plumber's snake").

Sink may also refer to:
In computing, a sink, event sink or data sink is a class or function designed to receive incoming events from another object or function. This is commonly implemented in C++ as callbacks. Object-oriented languages, such as Java and C#, have built-in support for sinks by allowing events to be fired to delegate functions.
Due to lack of formal definition, a sink is often miscontrued with a gateway which is a similar construct but the latter is usually either an end-point or allows bi-direction communication between dissimilar systems, as opposed to just an event input point . This is often seen in C++ and hardware-related programming , thus the choice of nomenclature by a developer usually depends on whether the agent acting on a sink is a producer or consumer of the sink content.
The word sink has been used for both input and output in the industry. Mobile sink is proposed to save sensor energy for multihop communication in transferring data to a base station (sink) in wireless sensor networks.
Sink is an album released by Floater in September 1994. Lyrics of isolation and insanity are set against dark and moody aural landscapes, ambient sampling montages, and savage instrumental punch. Sink received a preliminary Grammy nomination in the category of Best Rock Album. There are four known pressings of the disc art to exist. The first and the rarest pressing shows the sink from the cover of the Sink demo tape. The second pressing shows the blue and white sea swirls with "Floater" and the man on the couch. The third pressing is a solid blue disc that has "Floater" and "Sink" on the top of the disc. The fourth pressing is also a solid blue disc, has "Floater" on the top of the disc and the man on the couch on the bottom. Sink was also released on cassette as well.
A geographic sink is a depression within an endorheic basin where water collects with no visible outlet. Instead of discharging, the collected water is lost due to evaporation and/or penetration (water sinking underground, e.g., to become groundwater in an aquifer). If the sink has karstic terrain, water will sink at a higher rate than the surface evaporation, and conversely if the lakebed or sink bed has a layer of soil that is largely impervious to water ( hardpan), evaporation will predominate. Since dry lakes in sinks with hardpan have little penetration, they require more severe aridity/heat to eliminate collected water at a comparable rate as for a similar sink with appreciable penetration.
Depending on losses, precipitation, and inflow (e.g., a spring, a tributary, or flooding); the temporal result of a lake in a sink may be a persistent lake, an intermittent lake, a playa lake (temporarily covered with water), or an ephemeral lake.
