How to Install a Kitchen Sink?

If you’ve decided to replace your old sink and install a new one on your own, here’s what you’ll need to do to complete the project successfully.

1. Choose the right type of sink

The two main types of sinks used in kitchens today include undermount and overmount sinks. Your choice will depend mostly on the design you want to achieve as well as the surface area you have available. If you have a smaller kitchen, you’re better off going with an undermouth sink as it will give you more available space to work with. However, if you’re on a budget, you can choose to go with a classic overmount sink, which is often both cheaper to purchase and easier to install.

2. Choose the right size and shape

If you’re simply replacing your old sink with a new one of the same type, make sure you measure everything correctly so you can find the suitable replacement.

If you replace your sink with one that is the same size, shape and style, you can save yourself a lot of work and make the process a lot easier. That’s because you will be able to use the same outlet connections without doing any alterations, as they will be able to fit perfectly, and remain in the same position.

3. Get your supplies ready

Make a list of all the things you’ll need for the job, including gaskets, supply lines, PVC primer, plumbers putty and cement.

4. Remove the old sink

Turn off the water and turn on the faucet to relieve the pressure. Disconnect your garbage disposal, place a bucket to catch any dripping water and disconnect the supply lines. Disconnect the drain pipes and unscrew the discharge pipe to remove the garbage disposal. Loosen and remove the screws holding the sink in place, cut the caulk around the sink and remove the entire sink.

5. Install the new sink

Clean up leftover caulk and drop the new sink to see if it’s a fit. Once you’ve made sure the sink fits into the opening, take it out and start installing each part one by one. Fit in the drain strainer using a bit of plumbers putty to press and fixate it into position. Place and tighten the gaskets and flange and remove any excess putty.

Next, install the mounting bracket for the garbage disposal and the faucet, following the instructions on how to properly fit it into the sink. Apply a silicone sealant around the edges and fit the sink into the opening. Tighten the screws or clips that are holding it in place and wipe away any excess sealant.

Once that’s done, you can connect the supply lines and sprayer to the faucet, and attach the garbage disposal, connecting it to the discharge pipe and the drain pipes. One all of those steps are completed, you can turn on the water supply and check for leaks.

Frequently asked questions

Should I install the sink myself?

Although sink repair might be the easiest job around the house, installing a new sink requires a lot more work, so if you don’t have the required skills or materials, or even the time to do it yourself, you can leave this job to a certified plumber and have your new sink installed in a timely and professional manner.

What’s included in the sink installation service?

The sink installation service includes removal and disposal of the old sink, installing the new one and connecting it to the drain lines and the faucet, testing it for leaks and cleaning up after the installation process is complete.

Why does my faucet drip?

A dripping faucet may indicate corrosion in the valve seat, a loose screw, a broken pipe or seals or another common problem with one of the internal mechanisms.

How do I unclog my sink with a plunger?

The fastest and easiest way to unclog your sink is to use a drain snake and a plunger. When using your plunger, you’ll need to seal one drain using a wet cloth and set and seal the plunger on the other one. Pump water into the drain for about 20 seconds, up to a few minutes until the water starts swirling down the drain.
