Most under mount sinks are installed before the counter tops go in, they are cut to fit and glued in with 2 part epoxys and secured with screws and clamps. Replacing one in an existing counter top is not an easy job. If you have a granite top, forget it. If it is wood and formica, ok, you can pull the splash off and remove the top, but it is a lot of work. You would be better off with a new top, or a new sink, rim type. Now if you are building a new house and this is new construction, then you can do it no problem. And depending on what kind of top it is, it needs to be screwed and glued. The guy here that did granite for us, would drill out little holes, about 1/4 inch dia, and 1/2 deep for these little machine inserts to go into. Epoxy them in, then clamp the sink down or up to the top with machine screws, about 10/24, 1/2 inch long. Through a clamp, and epoxy the top on, sometimes he used clear silicone. depended on the top. If it was wood, you would just screw into the wood with 1/2 inch pan heads. Hope this helps.

Can I drop-on this sink? or only undermount it? Thanks, Brooke


You are only restricted to undermounting these sinks because of there depth in relation to the siting of the tap, that's all. Remember if you place this sink on top you willhave to discreetly raise the tapbase fixing to maintain easy use of the taps

I cant figure out how to use the clips for a Franke topmount granite sink. No instructions came with the sink. It is a formica countertop.


We can't figure it out either! It seemed to come with undermount pieces (its not an undermount sink) and some blurry IKEA-style instructions. Been working on this 3 hours!

Some padding under my undermounted sink has come off. What is it's purpose? and should it be replaced? Is it part of the undercoat?


The padding under the sink is just a sound buffer. If the sink became loud when the watter hits it just glue the pad back on and you will be go.

It is not part of the under coat.

Can you install a garbage disposal in a corner undermount sink


Are we concerned about the distance between the bottom of the sink and the bottom of the cabinet?

I have installed a lot of disposals on under-mount sinks and I have found the the Badger company has a 1/3 hp unit that is quite short. It may seem a bit small but we need to remember that disposals are not made to chop wood.......1/3 is plenty strong for a person who uses their head when shoving food sown it. Their 1/2 hp unit might also work.

They are available at Lowes and Home Depot for around $60.

Hope this helps

Jacuzzi undermount sink


Your sink is clearly made to be undermounted. No trim ring available. With all of the choices now available for sinks and faucets I would recommend that the jacuzzi sink be removed and that you select a new sink and faucet set to your liking. good luck.
