How to install a car wash
Independently assemble and install the sink is not so difficult. It is important to know how this is done, and to prepare the necessary tools and materials for the installation of wall cabinets and washing.
You will need a drill, screwdriver, jigsaw, clamps, an adjustable wrench, pliers, a screwdriver, as well as adhesive tape, sealant and cement.
The most difficult thing is to install a sink. First of all, it is necessary to determine the place where it will stand, check its compliance with the dimensions of the washing cabinet – and you can get to work.
It is better to remove the tabletop and accurately mark the washing contour on it. To do this, the easiest way is to use the pattern that kitchen furniture manufacturers attach to their products. The template is placed on the table top, fixed with scotch tape and encircled with a clear line strictly along the edge. Then the template is removed and, departing from the diagram inward by 1.5-2 cm, draw the working path.
At its corners with a drill it is necessary to drill 4 holes with a diameter of 10 mm so that the jigsaw blade can easily fit into them. The opening for washing should be cut exactly along the contour, and then thoroughly clean the cut from sawdust and dust.
It is important to properly handle the place of the cut, so that there is no gap between the table top and the sink, where water can fall. Depending on the material from which the tabletop is made, alcohol sealant or silicone glue is applied to the cut, and the sealant is suitable for plastic and wood, and the glue for stone and ceramics.
After the adhesive base thickens, the tabletop must be set in place and firmly fixed.
The next stage is the preparation of the sink. It is turned over, silicone is applied to the edge as close as possible to the edge, or a seal is applied, and then gently inserted into the worktop opening.
Installation of the mixer and drains is made in accordance with the plumbing installation instructions. It should be carefully studied to prevent flaws in the work. The correct sequence of actions will relieve you of the need to thoroughly master the adjacent plumbing specialty. Connections must be firmly fixed and tightly sealed to prevent the flow of cold or hot water.
If there is no hole for the mixer in the sink, it is easy to cut it yourself, having accurately calculated the size and location of the water pipes.
The result of the self-made work will give you no less pleasure than the look of a new sink and personally assembled kitchen furniture.
