Summary: Learn how to fit a new stainless steel kitchen sink, cut a recess hole in the worktop, connect up the supply pipes, fit a monobloc tap and connect the waste pipe.
Fitting a new kitchen sink involves ensuring the sink is the correct size for the space, identifying the pipes and connecting them up.
If you are fitting a sink into a new worktop you will need to cut a recess hole.
Place the sink face down on the worktop ensuring there is even space at the front and the back and mark the outline with a pencil.
Make sure you attach the flexible connectors from the hot and cold supply pipes to the correct tap tails.
To connect the waste pipe you will need a drain kit containing a tubular trap, often called a P-trap or S-trap because of their shapes, which stops unpleasant smells coming up from the drains.
Turn on the water supply and if there are any leaks, tighten the fittings. When you check for leaks, make sure the water has had time to build up to optimum pressure. Continue to check the connections regularly for a couple of days to ensure no slow leaks have developed.
