Sink. Tuesday , November 28th , 2017 - 03:55:02 AM
If you are replacing an old sink or basin with a new one, it is usually much easier to saw off the old supply and waste pipes and the screws securing the fitting rather than trying to undo them. Loosening old, corroded fittings is at best frustrating and often impossible. Cut the pipes where they are easy to get at both at this stage and later when the new basin is installed. When the old fitting is off the wall, the taps can usually be removed comparatively easily if you want to use them again.
Before starling any plumbing work, make sure the new basin or sink fits properly. Prepare the mountings: for example, fix wall brackets, check the position of a pedestal and drill fixing holes, check the positioning of a sink unit and cut any necessary holes in it for pipes.
Next fit the taps. To make the job of connecting the taps to the supply pipes easier, it is often a good idea to fit 'tails' first. Tails are short lengths of hand-bendable copper pipe fixed to the laps with tap connectors. Because they can be flexed, connecting the tails to the supply pipes, even once the sink or basin is in position, is easy.
