If you have a small kitchen and feel like you need to downsize your large sink, you’ll need to replace some or all of your countertop. On the other hand, if you have a large kitchen, large family, or simply love to cook, your small sink may not be sufficient and an upsize is in order, in which case you’ll need to cut the sink hole larger (which may require special tools).

The most important part of this process is to let the epoxy dry at least as long as the manufacturer recommends. You can’t go wrong by letting the epoxy dry for a longer period of time, but you WILL get in trouble if you do not let the epoxy set for the at least the proper amount of time. The result can be a sink that feels secure, but fails under the load of water and dishes. That is not a pretty sight, so be sure to let the epoxy dry.

Information about stainless kitchen sinks is not hard to find, but sometimes it is hard to understand with numbers, alloys and percentages floating around in the product descriptions. It may look complicated but in reality, almost all stainless steel sinks are fabricated from Type 304 stainless steel. This is the basic form of stainless steel and what this number signifies is that this steel contains a minimum of 18% chromium, 8% nickel and a maximum of.08% carbon. This is why you will also see the number 18-8 steel listed in the specifications sometimes, they are simply referring to the percentages of chromium and nickel blended with the steel to make it stronger. As you probably know, steel is susceptible to rust, but by blending in these other elements it makes the steel corrosion resistant as well as sturdier. A higher percentage of chromium and nickel in the steel indicates a higher grade of stainless steel so look for the 18-8 or even 20-10 numbers somewhere in the information so you can rest easy knowing your stainless sink is high quality. While stainless steel sinks are not very susceptible to rust, they can be stained by rust, so be careful of leaving a cast iron pan sitting in a sink too long.

Flip the sink over and carefully place it in position. Measure carefully to make sure that it’s parallel with the front edge of the counter, and adjust if necessary before the caulk sets. If there are any mounting clips or other bracing required for your sink, install them now.
Belinda Carson Sinks, 2017-02-04 15:54:05. One disadvantage of stainless kitchen sinks is that they are noisier than other sinks. A good quality kitchen sink will be insulated with some type of vibration damping material on the underside of the sink to help alleviate this issue. No one wants to hear a cymbal crash every time they drop a dirty fork in the sink. In addition to keeping the noise down, this insulation will help with condensation build up on the underside of the sink, thus preventing moisture issues in the base cabinet and keeping everything drier and less prone to mold or mildew, so look for a protective coating on the bottom of the sink.

Once you’re sure you won’t unleash a flood, you’ll need to disconnect the old sink from the kitchen plumbing. Get under your sink and familiarize yourself with which pipes go where. You may want to draw a simple outline for reference. Then you will simply need to methodically unhook the waste lines and feed lines from the existing sink. Have a bucket and some towels handy; there will be some drainage.
