The options for bathroom sink installation are only limited by your imagination; on a table top, on a counter top, on a bathroom cabinet, or try a freestanding unit using trendy pedestals or trunks that cover the drainpipe. Choose a sink that goes with your plumbing and space available and also with the general décor of your bathroom. Replacing bathroom sinks can also give a new look and style to your bathroom.

Mr. Rooter Tip For the Do-It Yourself Gals

A typical bathroom sink installment will take 4 to 6 hours. Whether your sink is damaged or you’re just looking for an update, replacing a drop in bathroom sink is easy.

Tip #1 The first step is to get the old sink out! Turn off the water supply under the sink and disconnect the supply lines and the sink trap.

Tip #2 Use a utility knife to cut through the sealant around the rim of the sink.

Tip #3 Lift the sink off the counter top.

Tip #4 Use some white vinegar and a non-abrasive scrubber to remove any sealant left around the sink. If it’s really stubborn you may need a putty knife.

Tip #5 Install your new drain assembly and faucet before you drop in your new sink. If you need more information on removing or installing a faucet, you can find sink and faucet replacement at your local Cleveland plumbing supply or home improvement store.

Tip #6 Apply a bead of good quality silicone caulk around the sink cutout.

Tip #7 Set the sink and press gently to make a nice seal.

Now all that’s left to do is mount it – instant bathroom makeover!
