    What does a kitchen sink installation service include?

    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.


    Step 2: Prep

    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.


    Step 3: Kitchen sink installation

    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.


    Step 4: Kitchen tap installation and reconnect pipes

    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.

    The tap on our kitchen sink is now loose at the base and swivels side to side when turning taps on. It doesn’t leak but just needs tightening up. We can’t move the integrated dishwasher out of the way so it’s not easy to get to with any tools we have. Just needs someone with the right (bent) tool!

    Our kitchen sink tap is a combined tap (cold and hot mix) and is leaking on the the hot water side. It also drips water i.e. not shutting the water completely. Possibly needs some washer changed. If not, a replacement tap of similar type.

    Job well done, very good at his work. happy to recommend him for similar jobs.
