Sinks. Thursday , March 16th , 2017 - 13:20:08 PM
Selecting a kitchen or bathroom sink use to be easy. There were just a few large companies selling ceramic, enameled steel, cast iron and stainless steel sinks. In the past decade, there has been an explosion of new products in the sink category and a growing demand for hand crafted and custom work. There have been several \"new\" sink mediums gaining recent acceptance - glass, various stones, brass, copper, and even wood. This article will focus on copper sinks and what to look for before making your purchase.
The last variety of sink has gotten more popular in the last decade or so. The fifth type of sink is called the vessel sink. A vessel sink is a basin that sits n top of the counter. They can be any shape but the most popular ones are circular or oval shaped bowls and square basins. The vessel sinks are hard to clean because you have to try to reach into the small space between the vessel and the counter, but they look very nice.
Make sure you have aligned and measured the clips to their mate which is on the underside of the sink. Next, you should attach them to the underside of the counter-top and drive each nut into place. Some of the sinks manufactured today are made from enamel cast-iron or porcelain. These are classified as self-rimming as they usually rest on the source of the counter-top meaning they do not need clips. Though such models are simple to install they have a raised edge that does not allow you to clean debris from the counter-top directly to the sink. Apply a silicone sealant before lowering the sink into position. Reconnect the disposal, trap and supply, and then turn on the water supply. Test the taps ensuring they are operating properly. Wait for a few hours allowing the silicone sealant to dry completely before cleaning up.
