Basins Installation Tips
- Will your basin fit in your desired location? Do you need to get a cabinet maker or stonemason to modify the existing location?
It’s important to check the dimensions of your new basin against the dimensions of the existing one or existing opening to make sure that the new appliance will fit.
Yes – If your new basin fits in the existing location, no cabinet or benchtop modifications should be necessary.
No – If your new basin doesn’t fit in the existing location, a cabinet maker may be required – Feel free to call for additional information or a quote.
If you are installing a new bathroom, it is a good idea to purchase your basin before hand so your cabinet maker or benchtop installers can cut out for the new basin correctly.
- If you are changing over your basin, is the cut out of your benchtop the same size.
If you are replacing your existing basin, it is a good idea measure the current opening in your benchtop to check that the new one will fit. If the new basin is larger than your existing one, a cabinet maker or benchtop installer may be required to modify cabinetry to suit the new installation. Feel free to call for additional information or a quote.
- Is your new basin going to be above counter, inset, semi recessed, undermount or wall hung?
Undermount and overmount sinks, basins or troughs are similar in design, but have a different finished look and have different installation requirements.
Undermount– These are mounted underneath the benchtop but on top of the cabinetry. These can only be installed BEFORE your benchtops have been installed.
Overmount– These are installed on top of your benchtop, and have screwable brackets to hold the sink/basin/trough down to your cabinetry. These can only be installed AFTER the benchtop has been installed.
- If you are installing a wall hung basin is their adequate support from the wall behind? You may need to reinforce behind the proposed basin with timbers.
- If you require a wall hung vanity has your installation been roughed in correctly for hot, cold and waste.
- Wall hung basins and wall hung vanities are heavy and require adequate fixings so it can bear the weight not only of the unit itself but also the wait of a human if someone is leaning on it.
- Do you require any alterations to your current tapware to suit your new basin?
If you are wanting to replace your existing basin, it’s advised to check that the new basin will be compatible with the current tap you have installed.
In certain circumstances you may need to alter the basin or tapware to suit the installation. You may need to cut a hole for your tap, or you may need to drill a new tap hole through your timber or stone benchtop. If the hot and hold water supply is accessible in the cupboard underneath, we should be able to modify the pipework to suit most newer style mixer taps.
Works like these should be done by a professional to avoid damage to your kitchen, sink or tapware. Feel free to call for additional information or a quote.
- If this is a new install, do you have water and sewerage close by and readily available for use?
Yes - If there is a cold water supply and a sewer drainage point in the cupboard next to the dishwasher readily available for use, we should be able to connect your dishwasher to those.
No - If there is no nearby water supply or sewerage you will be required to run a new pipe from your cold water service, and a new drainage point from your sewer drain – a quote will be required. Feel free to call for additional information or a quote.
- Always ensure to engage a licensed plumber for installation so it complies with Australian Standards.
If your installation includes any plumbing or electrical work it’s essential to use a licensed plumber or electrician. Licensed trades must hold insurance to be granted their license, which protects both you and your home. A licensed trade has a higher standard of knowledge and experience than someone who is only registered or in training.
