If you are looking to save money and would rather skip a professional sink installation, follow these eight easy steps.
1. Find the Right Tools for the Job
One of the most important steps to installing your own kitchen sink is to find the right tools. DIY installers do their research beforehand and are prepared by finding the right tools, some of which are basin wrenches, plumbing sockets, plumber’s wrenches, and silicone caulking.
2. Close the Water Supply Valve
Start by turning your water supply valve off. The water supply valve is often located beneath the sink itself. If it is not there, you will have to turn off your main water. You might want to check the basement area for the main water supply valve. Ensure the water is off by turning on both the cold and hot water faucets. If no water comes out, proceed to the next step.
3. Remove and Fit the Sink
Presuming you measured your sink’s opening beforehand, your next step will be to remove the old sink and confirm that the new one fits.
4. Insert the Faucet
Before installing the new sink, turn it over and prepare it by attaching clips. Then, install the faucet by guiding it through the small, circular opening within the sink’s opening.
5. Put Puddy Around the Sink’s Drain Hole
With the sink turned upside down, use a plumber’s putty to seal the faucet and the sink’s drain opening ring.
6. Seal the Bottom Rim
Squeeze sealant on the bottom side of the rim of the sink and place it into the opening of the countertop.
7. Tighten the Pipes
