This can be done. However, before doing this, just make sure you can get all the parts necessary for your faucet. With the faucet coming through the countertop, it will need to be extended to reach a height above your countertop. They make faucets special for this purpose, so just do your reasearch first. Also, before cutting the opening for the sink, get a rough idea where it is going and put the faucet in place (again no holes drilled yet) to see if it will function where you want it. Often times, the faucet has to be offset at an angle because the backsplash is too thick and creates an issue for you. Not to worry though, there is usually a solution for everything.

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

Since we fixed our dish washer, the water prssure in the kitchen faucet is very low. A friend told me to clean the filter. where is the filter, and what do I need to open in order to get to it?


filter screen is usually just under where the water comes out. Cover drain so any parts do not get lost down drain. Just unscrew it counter-clockwise to loosen it up. Remove screen and clean by flashing water in bathroom sink until screen holes are clear. then re-install and tighten in clock-wise direction. All done after you check that water comes out again.

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.

I have a Moen Monticello bathroom faucet. I am


Moving left to right: I am not an expert, but I have installed a fair number of faucets. Seems like a basic issue of just getting under the sink and tightening up. Make sure someone is topside to assure the faucet stays straight and does not move as you tighten up below. It is never easy to get a wrench and your hands in the proper position to tighten up the nut, but don't give up try a smaller Channel lock wrench if necessary.

Vessel sink drain causes poolin of water.


YOU ALSO HAVE A VENT ISSUE, THE VESSEL SINK DOESN'T HAVE THE LITTLE HOLE IN IT LIKE A VANITY SINK, THERE FOR THE WATER IS GOING DOWN THE DRAIN BUT THE AIR CAN NOT COME OUT, YOU NEED TO INSTALL A STUDOR VENT OR AN INLINE VENT INTO THE DRAIN BETWEEN THE WALL AND THE TRAP CUT IN A TEE AND BRING A PIPE UP TO THE BOTTOM OF THE COUNTER TOP AND INSTALL THE VENT, USALLY HAVE TO PUT A FEMALE ADPT ON THE TOP OF THE PIPE THE VENT COMES WITH THREADS DO NOT GLUE IT IN PLACE, THEY HAVE A RUBBER FLAPPER THAT OPENS WHEN THE WATER IS GOING THRU THE DRAIN AND ALLOWS IT TO PULL IN AIR THEN THE FLAP CLOSES WHEN NO WATER IS RUNNING TO KEEP THE SEWER SMELL OUT

Installing TL794DD bathroom faucet


All faucets install easily if you have the proper tools. Answer these questions first: 1. how many holes are their in the surface of your sink? Is there a faucet installed now? If yes, you may only need to remove that faucet and use the same feed lines under the sink to hook up the new one. Take your faucet to the hardware store and ask the plumbing clerk if the hook ups under the sink are different from what your new faucet appears to be compatible with. good luck
