Instructions for a Drop-in Sink Installation
Before buying a new sink, measure your current sink and be certain the dimensions and the location of the drain are similar. If not, you’ll need to work on the plumbing or countertop to make it fit.
To avoid problems, draw your current sink and include all the measurements from the drain center to the sink wall. Use this as a guide to help you find the right sink.
Take into consideration if you’re going to add other components like a soap dispenser, sprayer, filtered or hot water tap.
Most sinks have 1 to 4 holes so you’ll be able to install a faucet and other parts. Faucets and other components are best installed with a new sink as it’s easier to access.
