You won't for long. There is some stuff on the market that can immulate porcelain, but it won't hold for long. It really won't look the same. Now, if you are looking for practicality, and it doesn't leak, then keep it, otherwise, get a new one and you will be pleased with what is on the market now and the selections.

I have a very old yellow porceline sink. How can I make it look newer? Faded yellow and no shine.


Howdy, if you are attached to that sink ( I understand) and replacing is out of the question, then there are two coating methods available; one is to use a two part home kit which I cannot recommend, and the other is to have it professionally recoated (expensive, permanent and perfect). Your local plumbing contractor will know who in your area does this service. If you like, tell us your area, and we will find one for you. Hope you find this helpful.

Installing a vessel sink


Standard Vanity height is approx 34.5". A vessel vanity is approx 31" high. If you cannot remove the legs from your existing vanity then it will have to be replaced or cut down to the correct height. The reason a vessel vanity is lower is because your sink will be approx 3 to 6 inches higher than a standard drop in sink. This may be more work than it is worth. Vessel sinks most often will require a solid surface top, either glass, stone or another type of composite material. The standard laminate vanity top has a particle board substrate which will detiorate quickly at the drain location.

Our bathroom pedestal sink is very slow drain and clogging -2 questiions: do you have to disassemble and take off sink mounts and remove from wall to get to elbow joint? I do not know how to disengage...


You shouldn't have to disassemble everything in order to get to the trap (elbow joint). Most pedestal sinks are designed so that you can get to the trap from the back (generally after getting down on your hands and knees and crawling around with a flashlight). Most sink stoppers that are worked from the faucet itself have a little bar that extends down the back of the sink behind the drain. It will clip with a little metal piece to a lever that sticks out the back of the drain before the trap. The lever goes through a hole in the drain and pokes into a hole in the bottom of your sink stopper. As you move the lever, you will notice that your stopper goes up and down.

Unclip the rod from the lever and you should be able to unscrew the lever from the back of the drain (don't loose the little gasket that sits inside the screw-cap as it keeps water from leaking out here). At this point, you can pull out the stopper and see what is going on. If cleaning off the stuff attached to your stopper doesn't solve the problem, you can then remove the trap to see if anything is clogging that. Hopefully, by this point, your sink clog has been identified and you just need to reassemble, making sure when you put your stopper lever back in that you actually get it into the appropriate hole in the stopper itself.

If this doesn't solve your problem, it's more serious and you probably want to call a plumber as the issue is either a clog farther along or a problem with the venting of the sink drain.

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.

How To Connect Sinks Drain


No matter what type of sink you purchase, the drain and water-supply connections are generally installed in the same way. Hand-tighten a female adapter onto the drain stub-out at the wall. Slide slip nuts onto the drain arm and the sink's tailpiece. Fit a P-trap in place and tighten the slip nuts by hand. Connect flexible water-supply tubes onto the faucet's tailpieces, and route them to the shut-off valves. Tighten coupling nuts with an adjustable wrench. Remove the faucet aerator, turn on the water, check for leaks at the shutoff valves, and then turn on the faucet to check for leaks in the drain assembly. Replace the aerator.
