5 Install a Kitchen Sink: Step-by-Step

As the name suggests, a filter sink is useful for stress strangers, such as hair, food debris and garbage. Often it has neglected, but it is actually very useful to avoid sink clogging. To install a sink strainer, you need to follow the five easy steps below. You will also need paper towels or rags, plumber's putty or silicone sealant, solution sink, cleaning nose pliers and blocking pliers channel.

Step 1
The first step when installing a new well is to position the opening correctly. Most manufacturers provide a well model. Place the template so that it is centered in the sink cabinet and is at least 1 1/2 inches away from the front edge of the countertop. If your countertop is deeper than 24 inches, move it farther back, but not more than 4 inches. Glue the pattern in place and then describe with a marker.
Place the template on the countertop sink and check clipping.
 step 2
After marking the opening, remove the template and drill a hole hole with a diameter of 3/8 inch in each corner. Insert a saber saw blade into one of the holes and start cutting along the inside of the line. To avoid breaking the cut and in the fall you have completed the cuts, unscrew a piece of wood from front to back over the cut sufficiently long to cover the opening plus a couple of inches. Once completed, simply lift cutting template.

Step 3
Install the faucet (see Installing a Kitchen Faucet for Instructions) and the sink filters. (To do this, when you have full access to the sink will be much easier to assemble the parts underneath after the sink is installed.) Then, to create a seal between the sink and the countertop, apply a Bead of silicone sealant or putty all around the perimeter of the bottom lip of the sink.

Step 4
Carefully turn the sink upside down and insert into the opening, taking care not to disturb the putty or putty. Now, install the kitchen sink. If your sink is heavy, get help to lift and install; Be sure to place a couple of pieces of wood near the edge of the sink opening to support and protect your fingers while you drop in position.

Step 5
Most wells are pulled down tight against the countertop with special fixing clips are hung on the lip at the bottom of the sink and tightened with a screwdriver or a screwdriver. Follow the manufacturer's instructions to extend these clips. When tightening the fixing flanges can make the putty or putty is pressed under the lip of the sink, so remove the excess with a soft, clean cloth.
Step 6 To complete the project, first connect the P trap. Join the bypass lines to feed the pipes with hot and cold water pipes and connect the flexible filter of the feed line to be lost. Turn the water shutoff valves, remove the faucet aerator, and then turn on tap water to clean the system. Reinstall the aerator after running the water for a minute or two.
