How To Install a Drop-in Sink

Are you ready to transform your bathroom with a new drop-in sink? This installation guide will walk you through the process, ensuring a smooth and successful upgrade. 

Tools and Materials:
  • Tube cutter
  • Adjustable wrench
  • Pencil
  • Pipe wrench
  • Safety glasses
  • Jigsaw
  • Hacksaw
  • Keyhole saw
  • Tape measure
  • Drill
  • Thread sealant

Step 1: Drill a Pilot Hole and Cut the Countertop
To begin, mark the desired location for your sink with a pencil. Use a drill to create a pilot hole in the countertop. Then, carefully cut along the marked outline using a jigsaw or a keyhole saw. Take your time to ensure a precise cut.

Step 2: Verify the Fit and Adjust the Cutout if Needed
Next, place the drop-in sink into the cutout and verify that it fits properly. If adjustments are necessary, use a hacksaw or a jigsaw to trim the edges of the cutout. Take caution and make incremental adjustments until the sink fits securely.

Step 3: Apply Sealant, Fill Voids, and Allow to Dry
After verifying the fit, apply sealant generously around the edge. Position the sink securely in the cutout. Inspect for voids or gaps. Fill them with suitable filler. Allow sealant and filler to dry completely, as per instructions.

Step 4: Run Water and Check for Leaks
Once the sealant and filler have dried, it's time to test your installation. Turn on the water supply and check for any leaks around the sink and plumbing connections. If any leaks are detected, tighten the connections or reapply sealant as needed.

Congratulations! You've successfully installed your drop-in bathroom sink. This simple upgrade can instantly enhance the look and functionality of your bathroom. Enjoy your refreshed bathroom and the convenience of your new drop-in sink!
