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.

I have a leak coming through my ceiling from the ensuite toilet above. It is an ideal standard wall hung with concealed cistern behind tiles. There is no obvious access panel. The tiled wall is flush.


The flush control panel normally comes off. You can then hopefully see inside. You won't be able to see much though as the cistern will be in the way...

Places to look for leaks are:
Soil pipe to pan
Cistern to flush pipe
Flush pipe to pan
Cistern overflow.

Your not troweling enough glass thinset onto the wall. The thinset should be creamy and troweled evenly most people hold the trowel to flat or use to small of a trowel you also could lightly coat the back do the tile to give it a good mechanical bond

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
