Turn off the water valves at the back of the sink and place a bucket underneath the drain to catch any water that may run out.
2 Loosen the nuts that hold together the drain tailpiece and the P-trap with a wrench. Disconnect the the two pieces.
3 Unscrew the drain tailpiece from the drain flange. Depending on how the drain flange is held in place, you may need to hold it down firmly as you twist the tailpiece below. Remove the tailpiece and set it aside.
4 Remove the old drain flange. It may come straight out after the tailpiece is removed, or it may be held in place with putty or silicone. If it is held in place tightly, grasp the edge with a pair of pliers and pull until it comes free.
5 Wipe down the sink area that was underneath the old flange. If the metal was discoloring or rusting, clean the porcelain well and dry it to keep the new flange clean.
6 Apply a thin bead of silicone caulk to the underside of the new flange. Push the new flange into the drain hole in the sink.
7 Push the drain tailpiece back up into the sink's drain from below and screw it into the flange tightly. Use a wrench to tighten it up securely.
8 Reconnect the P-trap to the tailpiece and tighten the nuts that hold it in place. Turn on the water supply to the sink and run water through the pipes to ensure everything is securely fastened.

SOURCE: bathroom sink pipes came apart and flooded our

Hi, W/D here.
Almost always, the shutoff valves are at the wall where water is supplied to the faucet. If the problem is with the drain piping, and the faucet valves don't leak, you don't have to shut off the water. Simply replace the drain piping and tighten it up. If you need any repair parts, you can get them from any hardware store. Please repost if there is anything else that I can help you with.
Good luck, and best regards,
--W/D--

We have the Kokols Wallmount Bathroom Pedestal Glass Sink Vanity Combo but the p-trap keeps leaking. How do we fix it?


Remove it, (Don't forget water will come out when you uncscrew it!!!) clean it thoroughly, especially the ends, clean and check seating of any rubber washers to make sure they are fitted correctly and not being distorted when the rings are tightened, reseat it with no force (it should sit naturally without having to force it in) and tighten rings. There are lots of videos on youtube showing how. If you cant stop it leaking buy a new trap. It's worth while looking very carefully for exactly where the leak is before you remove the trap, it might be coming from higher up. Repair Leaky Sink Drain Pipe

The strainer/stopper is stuck in the kitchen sink the sink has a disposal unit attached. How do I remove it from the top


We just experienced the problem describe in this question. A dinner guest pushed the strainer stopper past the Blanco flange over the disposer and the stopper could not be removed by pulling straight up. The Blanco flange is difficult to remove so we knew that removing the flange would be a last ditch effort. I tried using several tools trying to deform the stopper enough to lift past the lower part of the flange but without success. While I was on the internet looking for a solution, my wife found the obvious answer. She pushed the stopper down into the disposer, rotated it 90 degrees. She then aligned the edges of the stopper with two of the small indents in the lower part of the flange. The stopper was then pulled up past the flange where only two points on the circumference of the stopper contacted the flange.
Kudos to her for this simple solution.

When installing do you silicone each piece for example the faucet , the soap dispenser ,the sprayer , and the tap


Hi seawitch678,

If you have a granite or stone countertop/sink, use silicone as plumber's putty will stain the stone. Plumber's putty is petroleum based so it will not adhere to stone. Normally you should use what the manufacturer recommends and where they recommend. When installing a faucet, put either around the base of any piece that goes through the countertop.

Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate your vote. Thanks,

Handie Andie

When I turn on the cold or hot water sink faucet water leaks out from the top of the cold water faucet . I took the outer casking off and can not figure how to remove the stem. I removed the ring but...


if you have the ring removed, screw the handle back on and pull up on it,, your leak is probably due to a worn , torn , "O" ring,, and Moen parts are found at most hardware stores ,, ( including Home depot , and Lowes) On Moen faucets , Look for the dent in the flange that squares off,, where that square is on the ring, is where the retainer ring is that holds the faucet in place ..its a "C" clip with a head on it, remove this ring and the assembly should come out , be sure and use plumbers grease when replacing the O rings,, they last much longer that way

Etching on Pegasus sinks from standing water on clear sink


You can get an acrylic sealant to put around the drain. It will fill the void where the flange on the drain hole and the sink meet. Possibly an epoxy would work but some tend to yellow with age.

Remove the base of a pedestal sink.


There are two bolts on either side of the sink. Remove them and lift the sink off of the base. Sometimes, depending on who installed it, you can slide the base out without removing the sink. Hope this helps.
