Installing a Modern Pedestal Sink on His Hands
Unlike the suspension sinks which need at least two pairs of hands set on a modern pedestal sink alone is quite real. First of all decide where it will be your sink. Shut off the hot and cold water before starting work. Note that the height of these shells is fairly standard – 700-800 mm from the floor. Then prepare a set of tools needed.
You will need: wrenches, building level, punch, hammer and screwdriver.
Stage work is as follows: Place the bowl on a pedestal. At the point where it adjoins the wall, there are special holes for bolts. Through these holes must be noted on the wall of the drill hole locations. However before you start to drill, no harm can be sure that the hole you made are on the same level. Note that the size of the drill and dowels must be the same. The drilled holes in the wall insert the spacer tubes. The next step is setting the trap. Verify the tightness of all connections.
Connect the siphon to the sink as follows: one hand must be connected to the sink drain trap (with its lower side) and the other is to tighten the screw through the mesh with a protective seal (on the other). Tighten the screw with a screwdriver when available second hand. After installing, the siphon can be attached and the sink itself. Screw the dowel at you makes a hole in the wall and hangs them on the modern pedestal sink. Then place the pedestal into place makes sure that it was exactly in the center with respect to the shell. On Dress screws washers, follow the nuts that must be properly tighten. During this operation, it is not necessary to use a special power and be careful not to damage the sink.
After installation, you can put the sink faucet and wash basin connected to the sewer. Note that it is not recommended to connect the modern pedestal sink to the water supply before you connect it to the sewer. If any of the gasket or the compound less than fully reliable, the flooding (albeit small) you will likely not be avoided. After all the stages of the work, it is important to check whether everything is working properly. Turn on the water and make sure no leaks anywhere. If you are still there, you may need to replace some rubber gaskets or sealant at the seams go.
