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.

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.

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.
