even premium domestic acrylic sheet has occasional defects

With the volume of the best acrylic sheet I can buy passing through my shop, there is bound to be some factory defects.
They happen in the casting process, when the clear resin is poured into a mold and allowed to harden.
Sometimes you will get what is known as "water marks" indicated by the red arrows below.
It's rare, and the plastics distributor usually gives you a credit, but it has some loss of labor for us.
It could be sanded out and buffed, but would be noticable, with waves etc.
