You might try a vehicle buffer on them. If that doesn't work you will probably have to use a porcelain touch up kit that can be bought at your local hardware store.

SOURCE: recently bought ex-display bathroom sink

I have to presume the sink is made of china and there is no repairing of china. There are two kinds of cracks, hairline from some sort of impact, and shrink. While the hairline crack can be visually disappointing, if it does not extend through the drain hole area it is a safe bet that the lavatory can be installed and used normally. A shrink crack resembles the cracks of a dried up lake bed and rarely cause any problems no matter where they are located. Rarely does not mean never.

SOURCE: The pop up waste in

the plunger ( plug) has slipped out of the grove, or the bottom has split ,, heres a quick fix,, under the sink you will have a rod sticking out with a nut that holds in the shaft that is what moves the plunger up and down,, unscrew that nut and remove the shaft, there will be a tab that holds the rod to another piece of thin metal, just squeeze that and slide it off, once the nut has been removed, you can pull that out of the drain assembly, with a small flat head screwdriver,, pop up the plunger from inside the sink and inspect it,, if the lower tab on it looks good,, you will see how it slides in the hole, so that when the rod is inserted it will slip into that opening, in the plunger bottom, which makes the thing go up and down, once you've done that ( if the plunger was bad, just replace it, ) with the rod and nut back in place, you can adjust the tab so that the plunger goes up the desired length ,, here, this will make it more understanding Please rate my reply and response

How do I set up the plumbing to convert a single bathroom sink to a double sink?

hot and cold supply is easy. You need to solder in a copper T-piece, and to that add a short length of copper pipe with an isolation valve and then connect that to a flexible braided pipe to the faucet.

Waste water not quite so easy. Have both P-traps fall to a cross pipe that goes to your existing waste.

A plumber could do the job in an hour and a half.

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

Click clack stuck

you need a grease that is good for water, usually white. use a tap or spindal grease.
The main problem hear is probably the type of soap that you are using. cheap ones usually have a high content of costic soda and this will remove any lubricant that you put on your click clack.

I recently installed 2 Kohler bathroom sinks 16x19". One of them keeping leaking at the bottom of the sink where the 1 and 1/4" pipe connects. I did not put plumbers putty in as instructed. It leaked, so I...

remove the waste fitting and clean off all the putty. Using a clear or white silicon put some under the waste fitting collar then insert it into the basin hole. Next put the washer and nut on and wind it up to about 1/2" from the basin. Using the silicon again put plenty on between the washer and basin ensuring complete coverage of the waste circumference. Hand tighten the nut until silicon pushes out from the sides of the joint. Finally tighten about 1/2 turn using water pump pliers.
Wipe off all excess silicon.
You can tighten a little more if the waste fitting is all metal but i'm guessing its plastic and it is possibly being overtightened.

Clogged bathroom sink

Try removing the **** Trap under the sink, there are two nuts one on each side. put a pan under the sink to catch the waste water in the trap first. ext loosen the nuts with a pair of channel locks or a pipe wrench turn the nuts counter clock wise direction till the nuts are loose slide the trap down and empty the contents of the trap into the bucket. Use rubber gloves so you don't get sick from germs. If the **** trap is plugged use a coat hanger to push threw the trap to get whatever is plugging it out. Rinse in a different sink, If it has the rubber gaskets I would recommend replacing the gaskets. Install in reverse. Do not over tighten the nuts or you will have to replace the parts. the trap looks like 2 opposing J .
