Frequently asked questions

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.

What ways should I use to stay safe if I hire a sink installer while social distancing?

Talk to your local sink installer to see what they’ll need to do to fix the issue and whether it can be addressed without even entering your home (such as fixing a broken water heater or a pipe from the garage, basement or outside your home). If they need to enter your home to fix the issue, the main ways you can use to stay safe and protected include not shaking hands, sanitising doorknobs, light switches and other commonly used areas, keeping a distance of at least 1.5 metres between you and your sink installer and using digital payments.

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.

Can I pay for sink installation services using digital payments?

Ask your sink installer if he or she accepts digital payments such as PayPal, Google Pay, Afterpay, Zip, and other similar payment methods before you hire them. Some may even offer digital payment options on their websites or profiles, so be sure to check that out first.

Why do you need a plumber for your sink installation?

A licensed plumber is the best person to call when installing a new sink in your bathroom or kitchen. They are most familiar with the various brands and types of sinks homeowners usually purchase. Working with professionals means that you can be confident that any issues or bumps in the road will be addressed quickly and efficiently by their expertise. Your sink will be installed correctly and professionally the first time.

Here are some things to remember before you install your sink.
The depth of your sink is limitless.
This is especially true when you replace the kitchen sink. Larger kitchen sinks are more popular because they have deeper basins, allowing greater soaking of plates and dishes. There is a limit on how deep your sink basin can go. It shouldn't block drains from draining correctly. The tailpiece, the pipe fitting between the drain basket and drain trap, can be damaged if you purchase a large sink. This piece should be measured to determine how big your sink is before it blocks the drains.
Assure a specific number of holes
Many homeowners don't realize that each sink has many holes for fitting the faucet and any accessories. However, some sinks have only one hole to accommodate a single faucet handle. Some sinks have four holes to accommodate the faucet handles, a sprayer attachment, and a soap dispenser. It is essential not to have too many holes as there may not be a way to add another one. However, there are ways to make adjustments, such as covering extra holes with a cover. It's essential to have the correct number of holes for your equipment. The entire drain assembly must be replaced. Many homeowners attempt to save money by replacing their sink and faucet, leaving behind the old pipes and drain assembly. The best practice is to replace all drain parts. Many hardware stores sell complete drain assemblies.
You must ensure that the new sink covers the hole.
Measure the opening below the sink before you remove it. Be sure to measure every side as the cutout might not be perfectly square. Attention to the corners. Because it is quicker, contractors often cut them at 90 degrees. These ugly gaps will be left if you buy a too small sink for the countertop opening.
You should check for water stains and leaks.
Water can seep around the sink rim and soak the laminate countertop. It is not uncommon for water damage to occur. However, if you notice significant swelling, the sink will not sit flat on the countertop. Particleboard won't provide a solid foundation for the clips that attach the sink to the countertop. Examine the countertops around the sink. Look for bubbles and bulges on the countertop. Next, take a look at the countertop from underneath. Finally, look for areas that are too weak or wet to support the sink clips and sink. These problems will require you to replace your countertop.
Caulk will seal your new sink.
Plumber's putty, once the gold standard in plumbing glue, is no longer the preferred sealant. Instead, it was used to seal sink rims and baskets. It eventually dries out, cracks and causes leaks. It can also cause damage to certain plastics, such as those used in sink construction. Plumbers now use silicone to avoid this. It is easy to use, clean up quickly and lasts for a lifetime.
