Your kitchen sink installer will take care of everything, from helping you choose your kitchen sink and prepping the area, to installing the sink, fitting the taps and pipes, and sealing the area. Plus, they’ll take care of kitchen sink removal (if needed) and handle any repairs. Here’s what you can expect from your service:
Step 1: Kitchen sink removal
If you’re upgrading and replacing your old kitchen sink, your installer will first remove it. They’ll switch off the water supply valves under the sink or the main supply. Next, they’ll switch on the tap to let out any water that’s already there. They’ll put buckets underneath the pipes, ready to catch any lingering water as they’re removed. The next step is to remove the water supply lines, along with the drainpipe, fittings, and dishwasher connection (if there is one). They’ll find the sink clips located underneath the outside edge of the sink and loosen them. Next, they’ll use a knife to cut away the caulk that attaches your sink to the bench-top, before lifting your sink out.
With the sink removed, your contractor will clean the area, removing any extra caulk from the bench-top and washing with soapy water. They’ll wash and prepare any old parts you are reusing (like the drain or tap). Before proceeding with your kitchen sink installation, they’ll check your new sink and ensure it fits in the existing hole. If not, they’ll either recommend choosing a different sink or increase the hole size by cutting with a jigsaw until it fits.
Installing your kitchen sink involves applying a silicone caulk to the sink’s underside before placing into the hole. Next, they’ll wipe away any caulk that seeps out from under the edges before attaching the clips to the underneath of the sink, twisting them to secure the sink into place. Of course, this installation process only applies if your sink is top-mounted, so it will vary slightly for under-mounted sinks.
To finish off, your kitchen tap is installed and pipes reconnected. Your installer will place your tap through the hole in your sink, using a washer and nut to hold the water lines in place before tightening. They’ll place the drain strainer and seal it in, removing excess putty, before covering with the rubber gasket and flange. Your contractor will connect each water supply line and re-connect the dishwasher, connecting all the pipes together again. Finally, they’ll switch the water supply back on, turn on the sink, and test to make sure there are no leaks.

My kitchen sink tap has a leak at the base, when I use the tap water starts to pool (see photo).
Ricardo was great! When we realised the issue was a bit more complex and couldn’t be fixed on the spot he came back later in the day and finished the job. Very accommodating and kind

Hi, There is a leak coming froM the drain part underneath the kitchen sink. I think the seal around it might be broken and is letting water seep through. Need someone to take a look at it and get it repaired. A clean on the drain pipes might be needed also.
Came fast and did a great job!

Looking for somebody to Cover two things: 1) The kitchen sink is leaking when it drains. This is coming straight out of the top attachment, which does not seem to be keeping water in. May require new part. See photos below: arrow shows where water leaking. 2) parts of the seal around the bath and sink need replaced as have worn away / have holes. Note that it may be difficult to get behind the bath tap.
Really good job: turned up on time, very friendly, good clean work done quickly. Would certainly use Mihai again!

The kitchen sink in my mothers house was slow draining, so I thought I would take out the plumbing under the sink and give it a clean. However, when I put back the plumbing the kitchen sink is now completely blocked. I need help to get the plumbing fixed as we can’t use the sink. Please let me know if you are able to fix this issue. Cheers
Fanatic work, came super fast and completed the job in super quick time.

Kitchen taps are hard to reach. They are newly fitted and one of them is leaking and I can't reach to tighten it any more.
Very friendly and professional. Ricardo fixed the problem which was actually a problem with the pipe and not the tap. Would recommend.
