There are a variety of sinks you can purchase and then install but the pedestal sink is one of the simplest and also one of the easiest to install. The following steps will explain how you can install a pedestal sink. Alternatively, if you don’t trust your plumbing ability, you can always call Plumbers Greenwich who is a highly reputable plumbing business.
Step One: Remove the old sink by firstly shutting off the water at the main supply line. Then turn your water heater off and drain the plumbing by opening the tap. Then remove the trap and the old sink. Make sure you remove the old lavatory stops and get replacements for the pedestal sink.
Step Two: Secure the new escutcheon covers. You will need two adjustable wrenches and then use them to remove the old supply which stops the hot and cold water lines. Then remove the old escutcheon covers which are the decorative metal shield on the tap’s stem. The next step is to apply Teflon tape on both stub outs and then you can install the new escutcheon covers by moving them across the cover in water supply. Thread the new supply stops on both stub outs and use your wrench to tighten them up.
Step Three: Place the lavatory on the pedestal and make sure it is in the desire location. Also make sure to centre the pedestal with the drain hole on the wall. Then thread the hanger bolts by installing the lag screws into the wood that backs behind the wall.
Step Four: Mount the pedestal to the floor in order to guarantee it is stable. Then dress the sink, mount the supply lines and connect the flange and the drain body in the sink.
Step Five: The final step is to install the P-trap by tightening the washers and cap nuts on the pedestal.
