A free hanging sink slides onto some brackets affixed to the wall. To remove the sink, simply disconnect the plumbing and lift the sink straight up.

I am replacing my sink, medicine cabinet and adding a small cabinet below the sink. I need to know how to remove the old and install the new.


The task you are embarking on is a great DYI project. But, be forewarned, it can get tricky. First, make sure the new sink will fit in the space of the old sink. If not do you have enough space for the new sink to fit securely against the wall? Next, remove the cabinet. There should be about four screws. You may also have to use a razor to cut calking from around the outside of the cabinet. Sometimes it's used to fill-in gaps between the tile and cabinet. Remove the cabinet. If the cabinet is setting in the wall, make sure you check and see where the support beams are located. If you are not putting in another wall cabinet, then you will have to know what kind of wall you have. Sheet rock, no problem. Plaster requires a bit more work. Measure the hole, and then you will need chicken wire, lime, plaster, paint, and matching tile. Fasten the wire to beams in the wall. The wire will hold the plaster in place. Let dry, sand smooth then paint. If you have sheet rock walls measure the hole cut the sheet rock to fit. Fasten it to the beams, use plaster or Spackle to cover the holes from the screws. You will need sheet rock tape to hide the space between the existing wall and the sheet rock patch. Smooth on cover the tape with Spackle, smooth by sanding.


To remove the sink: first, turn off the main water supply. Get a pipe wrench and remove any connections. If you're not familiar with plumbing you may want to get a plumber to attach the connections.


Putting a cabinet under the sink is the easy part. Make sure you have the right size cabinet. Get a leveler; make sure the sink and cabinet are level. Depending on your walls, you can just screw the cabinet to the wall. If they are plaster walls you will need wall anchors. That should do it. Enjoy

Sink falling off wall


Well first step would be to remove sink from wall.then determine if there is backing in wall (something study behind wall to anchor bracket to) Most of the time when its falling off the wall its due to improper backing or non at all, bracket mount screw rusting away.I seen sheetrock screws holding them on. (that would last long) I suggest 3/8x 2" lag screws.

Is plasterboard (with battens behind) strong enough to install a Roca Kalahari wall-hung sink against or do I have to reinforce it using tiles or a bracket?


Ok. Big answer. Where the sink is going to be mounted there needs to be inside the wall structural support mounted between the wall studs. This could be a 2X6 or 2X8 nailed from one wall stud to the next at the height the sink will be mounted. Then once you have repaired the sheet rock you can measure the distance the mounting holes in the back of your sink are and drill these holes smaller than the mounting bolts/screws for your sink. Screw the screw portion into the wall using the nuts on the bolt side and a wrench. Remove the nuts and the slide sink into place where the bolts/screws fit into the mounting holes in the sink back. Install washers and nuts and tighten to wall.

Our disposal will not turn on and we think it is a switch. How do we fix an insinkerator switch?


Underneath the motor is a red reset button. Push up on it to reset. If it clicks, it is the problem. Unit sjould work with wall switch, if not make sure unit is plugged in under sink andno GFCI outlets are tripped.

I have bolted a pedestal sink to the wall. The pedestal is a separate piece, and is loose under the sink. Evidently the sink is bolted slightly too high, though I had the sink resting on the pedestal...


Place spacers between sink and pedestal.You may need to replace current screws or bolts with slightly longer ones to compensate for the spacer thickness. Spacers could be almost any materiel but plastic or rubber would be best against water damage.
