The kitchen sink installation, I believe that every family will pay special attention, because the role of the sink in the kitchen is very large, washing vegetables, washing hands, washing dishes are indispensable, so the installation problem is the most basic problem. But even though, there are still many friends who are unfamiliar with the installation of the sink, and there are also special technicians to install them, so I don’t worry about it, but I feel that I still need to know some things in case some installations appear later. We can solve the problem ourselves. So let me take a look at the most common stainless steel sink
Stainless steel sink installation process
1, the sink position should be reserved
Reserve a good sink and specify the approximate size of the sink when ordering the sink. It is best to provide a floor plan for the sink to avoid rework. When the sink is installed, the position reserved for the countertop should match the volume of the sink. The sink should be installed firmly, and it should not be shaken left and right. Pay more attention to the sealing of the joint during installation.
2, first install the faucet and inlet pipe
Install the faucet and inlet pipe before installing the sink. One end of the inlet pipe on the faucet is connected to the water inlet switch.
3, the sink is placed on the countertop
After placing the countertop, it is necessary to install a matching hanging piece between the trough and the countertop.
4, overflow hole, filter basket seal
The degree of sealing of the overflow hole and the filter basket will affect the use of the sink in the future. Therefore, the sealing degree of the overflow hole and the filter basket is required to be high. After the installation, it is necessary to check the sealing of the overflow hole and the filter basket.
5, install supporting hanging pieces
Install the hanging piece of the sink. Generally, the counter top of the cabinet should be cut according to the size of the sink. After the countertop is placed, it is necessary to install a matching hanging piece between the trough and the countertop. When installing, avoid small gaps and cause the tank to shake.
6, drainage test, edge banding
After the installation, the drainage test is carried out, the water tank is filled with water, and the drainage of the sewage water and the overflow hole is tested. If there is any water seepage when draining, rework immediately. After the drainage test, ensure that there is no problem, the sink can be sealed. When sealing with silicone, ensure that the gap between the sink and the table is even and there is no water seepage.
