Home Improvements: Home Bathroom Sinks

Most home bathroom sinks can be replaced easily. Just take out the old one, and replace it with a newer one. It’s a simple task that can be done with minimal tools, such as pliers, screwdrivers and open spanner wrenches.

Turn off the water before you take out the old sink. Turn off the main water supply to the basement. If it doesn’t turn off completely, leave the tap open. You may also need to replace the tap underneath the sink. You should have hot and cold taps underneath the sink.

Disconnect the supply tubes that connect the faucet and the tap within the vanity. Next, loosen up the hardware that holds the sink and vanity together. The sink should now be removed from the vanity along with the faucets. You can decide whether to keep or discard the faucets with the new sink.

The original sink installations used a thick, chrome-plated copper pipe that could be bent to fit different angles. Today, they use a flexible hose, which is more flexible and easy to use. You can find a variety of lengths. Take a look at your existing connection to determine the right length and order a flexible pipe.
