When connecting the sink, there is no need to contact specialists. The main thing, before you connect the sink, carefully examine the wiring diagram and sequence of works.
First, it is extremely important to prepare everything.
The entire preparation procedure can be divided into several stages:
According to the standard, the shell is fixed at a height of 85 cm. At this height a horizontal line is drawn. If your sink has a pedestal or comes complete with a bedside table, then the height of its installation will directly depend on the height of the support leg or bedside table.
Marking of holes
As far as marking is concerned, precise measurements are needed for the hole of the fastener. Measure out attachment points can be two methods. The first option is to attach the sink to the wall and put marks through the holes. The second method is more complicated, it is to carry out all measurements with a tape measure. Both in the first and in the second case, it is more convenient to do markup together. One can handle if the sink has a support leg or nightstand.
Attachment mounting is the very last preparation step. Holes are drilled at the marked places. In them the dowel is hammered, into which the necessary fixture is screwed.
To connect the sink, it is imperative to use nuts, studs and special plastic liners.
Fastening on studs
The stud should be screwed to such a depth that when installing the sink there was enough distance for the mounting nut with the gasket underneath it. The stud should be 15 mm greater than the shell thickness. Now it's time to learn how to connect the sink to the water supply and sewage.
First of all, the mixer is mounted. It is more convenient to install it when the sink is not fixed to the wall yet. This is because all fasteners are located under the sink.
Step-by-step instruction on how to connect the mixer:
Installing the mixer
When fixing the mixer, it is important to pay attention to the spout. If it is not swiveling, it should be directed directly in the center of the sink.
Now it's time to fix the sink on the wall. Wear the shell on the mounting studs. After you insert the plastic tabs and tighten the nuts with a key. If the sink in the bathroom has a leg, then at the same time carry out its installation. If the sink in the kitchen, then here it is either superimposed on the nightstand, or crashes into the countertop.
Studs for fixing the sink
After this procedure, it remains to connect the hoses to the central water supply. Make sure the rubber seals are inside the nut.
After connecting the hose, make sure the connection is tight. Perhaps you just need to slightly tighten the nut.
Assembling the siphon
To organize the drain sinks need to connect it to the sewer. Connecting to the sewer begins with the assembly of the siphon. Siphon, or rather the water seal, will serve as a barrier to unpleasant odors. If you mount the sink in the kitchen, then use the S-siphon S-shaped. If in the bathroom, the bottle is suitable. Although the bottle has a number of drawbacks, for example, it clogs faster.
The connection of the sink to the sewage system takes place in this sequence.
This is how the sink is connected. Everything is very simple. If there is savvy, then all the work will be done in a short period of time.
