I don't know if you have encountered such a situation after the renovation, the kitchen sink has not been used much, and there are a series of problems such as rust, mildew, dark spots, water leakage, etc., so that you don’t even have the mood to cook. In fact, these problems are all caused by the neglect of details during the installation of the sink. What is the correct procedure for installing the China Stainless Steel Sink ?
In general, the steps for installing the sink are like this:
Fixed position - installation of faucet and inlet pipe - sink placed on the countertop - overflow hole, filter seal - installation of pendants - drainage test - edge sealing - cleaning.
1, fixed position
Before installing the sink, you must first determine the location and size of the installation. This is convenient for us to order according to the size. It is better to have a plan of the sink to avoid inaccurate data and cause rework. In addition, after the sink is installed firmly, do not shake it from side to side, it is easy to leave a gap and cause looseness. Moreover, the most important thing to note is the tightness of the gap at the joint.
2. Install the faucet and inlet pipe
Before installing the sink, the faucet and inlet pipe should be secured first, and the inlet pipe at the other end should be connected to the water inlet switch.
3, the sink is placed on the countertop
After the sink is placed in the countertop, it is necessary to install a matching pendant between the wall and the countertop. However, as much as possible, pay attention to the sealing effect of the sink during the installation process.
4, overflow hole, filter
The degree of sealing of the overflow and the filter determines the effect of the use of the sink in the future. The higher the sealing degree of the overflow hole and the filter, the less likely it is to be problematic in the later stage.
5, install supporting pendant
Installation of supporting pendants is generally considered to be the last step in the installation of the sink. Generally, only when the sink is bought, the workers will cut the countertops according to the size of the sink and put them into the countertops. When installing, each gap should be filled to avoid water leakage problems in the future.
6, drainage acceptance
After the whole installation of the water tank is completed, the water tank needs to be filled with water to do the drainage test. If there is leakage, the problem should be found immediately.
7, edge banding
After the drainage test ensures that there is no problem, the sink can be edged. When sealing with silicone, make sure that the gap between the sink and the countertop is even and that there is no water seepage.
8, clean up
After the installation is completed, the sink must be cleaned to clean up the debris during installation. Do not use water directly into the water, it is easy to cause a blockage.
Tip: Finally, add some notes on the sink decoration.
a. The sink installation should be left at the end to avoid damage during the renovation process.
b. When installing the water tank, remember to drain the water in the water pipe, otherwise, it will cause problems such as water leakage and rust.
c. The installation of the faucet must be firm at the junction of the pillow. If there is a gap, it will lead to water leakage.
d. The rust is in the sink. It can be wiped with toothpaste. It will disappear naturally after normal use.
e. It is best to apply glass glue to the connection between the sink and the water drain.
