Blanco sinks are among the highest-quality stinks available
on the market today. Not only are these sinks beautiful, but functional as
well.The good news is that installing
one is a relatively simple process and one that many do-it-yourselfers can do entirely
themselves. These basic steps can be used to install a variety of Blanco sinks
depending on the type of sink you use.
Before you get started, it’s important to know what type of Blanco sink you need. If you have a two-sided sink that was previously installed, you’ll need to install a two-sided Blanco sink to replace it. For those with one basin, a single basin Blanco will work well.
Start by turning off the water to your sink and removing your old sink. Use a small saw to cut away the glue holding the sink down by running it along the edge where the sink meets the countertop. Next, loosen the sink from the connecting pipe using a crescent wrench and other plumbing tools.Lastly, disconnect the sprayer and other connections in the same way. Tape any vital pipes or connectors down to keep them in place near where the new sink needs to be connected.
Before installation, turn your new Blanco sink upside down on your counter, and slide the new faucet though the hole in the back. Make sure to properly align the faucet with the sink front and screw the connector nuts in place securely to hold it down firmly. Keep your sink turned upside down for the next several steps.
To install the new drain, take your new Blanco sink drain and press it firmly into place in your sink hole. There shouldn't be too much involved in this step: simply push it into place and it should stay right where you've placed it. Your sink is now prepped to be installed.
Using a small amount of cement or glue to hold your sink in place, align the sink in the hole and then press firmly.The glue will hold the new sink in place until the seal has cured.After a few hours, thread any sprayer through the appropriate hole and attach it to the sink and sprayer water supply, making sure to tighten each connection to prevent leaks.The hardware you need will be specific to the Blanco sink you choose and will be included in the sink packaging.
Once the sprayer has been connected, the next step is to line up your drain pipe with the piping beneath the sink and connect it with the included pipe connectors. All Blanco sinks come with a variety of connector pipes, making it easy to install. They also come with nuts and bolts of various sizes, perfect for a wide variety of sink pipe sizes. Once your sink is fully connected, it’s safe to turn on the water. Run a small stream of water to check your pipe connections. Use your sprayer to test its effectiveness. If you spot no leaks, your sink is ready to use!
