I installed a DrinkPod that connects to my cold water link under the sink.

I routed the hose through an unused hole in our kitchen counter top. Is there a Sink Hole Cover, but maybe with a smaller opening in the middle to make this look cleaner? Or what would you suggest? The sink hole opening is about 2" in diameter.

  • If this were mine, I’d route the hose thru a new hole behind the machine so the hose is hidden. Then in this hole I’d put a “sink soap dispenser” (google that, my link won’t paste for some reason). Of course I also would have hooked it up just like you did to start, once I knew I was going to keep the machine tho.... – Tyson Feb 4 '18 at 22:52
  • If you want to leave it as-is, there are plastic hole covers used to neaten up holes in desks for passing cables through. They have a small hole or slot intended for the cable. Check the big hardware chains or office supply stores. – fixer1234 Feb 5 '18 at 0:24
  • @Tyson should submit this as an answer so I can upvote it. – Stanwood Feb 5 '18 at 3:49
  • @Tyson Yeah, that's probably the best, but I didn't want to drill another hole in the countertop. So I removed the soap dispenser to route through there. – Bernie Perez Feb 5 '18 at 4:31

Buy a 1-3/4-Inch Sink Hole Cover and drill a hole in the middle. voila problem solved.

You may want to get a grommet to protect the hose from the edge of the hole you are drilling. You would need a grommet with a hole sized right for your pipe and then drill the appropriate size hole for the grommet to fit in.

If you or a friend had a work shop with a wood turning lathe you could easily make a plug of hardwood such as maple that would fit into the hole and have a smaller hole in through the center. You could finish the wood with a durable oil or poly and then set in to place with some silicon sealing compound. The plug could also be painted with a durable epoxy paint to do more of a color match.

The plug could look something like this:

  • Thats a cool project, but I don't have a lathe handy. Thanks though! – Bernie Perez Feb 5 '18 at 4:08
