Yes, the water comes directly form the water supply line (not the tank or bowl). It is no different than the water from your faucet.

How do I unclog my kitchen sink?


if you do NOT have a garbage disposal, try your toilet plunger and see if that works. if you do have a garbage disposal, then try something flexible down the drain and see if that will clear it. since your are asking, i would not try taking the 'p' trap off, which is probably what you will need. phone a friend??

Backed Up Kitchen Double Sink Fix with Garbage Disposal- Quick and Simple Fix


Here's how to fix a backed-up double sink (running water down one side/sink causing dirty water to well up out of the drain on the other side, with slow or no emptying). Note that this quick-and-easy tip only works if you have a functioning garbage disposal.

What you will need: a stopper, and possibly a clean toilet plunger (the cup-shaped kind that stands on its own, not the kind that is bulb-shaped)

Stopper up the side in which the water is rising up out of the drain. Make sure you hold down the stopper as well; if you don't, the stopper will shoot up on a geyser of dirty water when you perform the next step. Once you have the stopper in place and are holding it down, run water on the other side/sink and turn on the garbage disposal. Once you have done that for a reasonable amount of time, shut off the garbage disposal and water, and unstopper* the other side. Run water on both sides to make sure everything is draining properly. Doing this should save you the hassle of taking the pipes apart or plunging one side repeatedly to clear the clog.

*Note: If the stopper is stuck, place the plunger so it completely covers the opening the stopper is stuck in and give it two good plunges. The plunger should create a vacuum that will suck out the stopper, and is more effective than you trying to pry or pull on it. Do this ONLY after you have shut off the garbage disposal and water.

What is happening is that there is a clog in your pipes. When water goes down one side, it hits the clog somewhere in the pipes, has nowhere to go, and gets pushed back up the pipe leading to the other side of the double sink. By stopping up the side without the garbage disposal, you are creating a barrier preventing the water from coming back up. At the same time, the garbage disposal running on the other side is forcing the water down. Since the water now cannot escape up the stoppered side, it has nowhere to go but down, forcing the clog out with it.

Simple Removal of Stuck Sink Stopper


I found an easy solution to removing a stuck stopper recently when I was fixing my kitchen sink and the stopper became vacuum-stuck. Instead of trying to pull on it (which will not work since the pressure is too great), or trying to release the vacuum by prying up an edge with a knife or other instrument (which would damage the stopper or sink), I used a (clean) toilet plunger to plunge the stopper out. Simply place the plunger squarely over the opening where the stopper is stuck and give it two good plunges. I got the stopper stuck several times while fixing the sink and this trick worked every time for getting the stopper unstuck. Make sure you are using a plunger that's cup-shaped (stands upright on its own), and not the kind that has a bulb at the end.

A Master Collection designer Thermocast cast acrylic double bowl kitchen sink with a rich high gloss finish that is easy to clean with non-abrasive cleaners.

  1. 1

    Put on rubber gloves. Spray the sink with a nonabrasive commercial kitchen cleaner, covering all surfaces of the sink with the spray.

  2. 2

    Dampen a sponge in warm water. Wipe the sponge over the sink, scrubbing at any visible dirt.

  3. 3

    Rinse the sink with warm water and then dry it with a clean towel.

  4. 4

    Fill the sink with warm water and add 1 tsp. of chlorine bleach per gallon of water, once a month. This will sanitize the sink, and is recommended by Thermocast. Let the bleach-water mixture remain in the sink for 15 minutes, then drain the sink. Rinse.

  5. 5

    Apply liquid automotive polish to a clean, soft cloth. Wipe the cloth over the sink to remove any scratches that may have occurred. Buff the sink using a circular motion. Rinse.

Abrasive cleaners may scratch Thermocast sink surfaces--using abrasive cleaners may also void the warranty.

THE PROBLEM IS THE SILICONE HOLDING THE SINK TO THE GRANITE HAS LET GO


Sinks are held in two ways:
1) Clips under the sink hold it to countertop.
2) Adhesive caulk.

Consult installer who will know exactly what adhesive is correct for your top.
And what procedure will minimize clean-up and not damage top.

To do this yourself:
Take photos of everything before starting so you know how it goes back.
Dry off countertop and then let dry for couple hours, then outline location of sink with masking tape.
This will help you reinstall sink in exact location and minimize caulk clean-up after smoothing out caulk bead with wet finger when sink goes back in.
We use wet/damp sponge to help caulk >> here's how it works: Wet finger on sponge, smooth caulk short ways with finger, wipe excess on paper towel, wet finger again, repeat slowly around sink. Remove tape immediately after caulk is smoothed.

Disconnect tubular drains at P-trap.
Disconnect disposal from sink basket and lay down inside cabinet.
Or you can leave disposal connected to sink, if you're strong enough to lift sink and disposal together. In that case, disconnect electric wire and dishwasher tube.
Turn off water. Disconnect supply lines at shut off.

Lift out sink.
Use pry bar and pry against wood paint stick.
Use bottle jack or car jack from underneath, and go real slow.
Have cardboard boxes where you can set sink up off floor.
Setting sink up will let you work on heavy sink and won't scratch floor.
Remove old caulk with single-edge razor blade, or scraper. Go slow not to scratch anything.

Apply new, continuous bead of caulk and set sink in place.
Sink will have to be held tightly by someone while working underneath.
Attaching disposal to sink basket without moving sink will the challenge.

Attach water supply lines, turn on water and check there are no leaks.
Lift disposal into place and attach with ring... leave attachment ring bit loose until tubular p-trap is aligned.

Any tubular pipes that were moved must be taken apart, cleaned and reassembled.
Rubber washers are replaced with new ones.
Plastic washers are cleaned and re-used. Tapered end of plastic washer goes away from nut.
We use rectorseal on all tubular joints when re-assembling under-sink pipes.
Smear it all over each washer and p-trap joint before attaching nut.

Just a note here that this phenom does happen just like toilet tanks just crackin while you are sitting in the living room watching TV. There is no explanation for it.

While I personally would not expect any manufacturer of anything to pony up 2 years after their warrenty expired, to each his own. I do however believe it would be good public relations if they gave you a replacement.

I understand your anger and frustration but I ask to to remember that getting a Ford Mustang that is a total lemon from the factory does not equate to all Ford Mustangs being lemons or that everything Ford makes is a lemon.

Godd luck and I hope they come through for you.

The hot water knob on my kitchen sink leaks


You will need to find out the make and model of your faucet, if necessary take some pictures, go to a hardware store. If your faucet is a major brand the hardware store will have or be able to order a parts kit for you. it should be pretty cheap, and come with directions 

You shouldn't need any special tools, just screwdrivers pliers etc...

Good luck, have fun, and don't forget to turn off the water under the sink before you start. ;)

Fowl smell in bathroom


Fowl smells related to plumbing can have several causes. Here's a few potential issues that you can check. If none of them solve the problem you may need to call a plumber.

1) Look at your pedestal sink drain connection. Is there an an elbow connecting to your drain or a P Trap? A p trap is a pipe shaped like the letter "p" (hence the name) and it prevents sewer gas from rising into the bathroom. **sometimes an apprentice plumber puts in a pedestal without a p trap because they are fairly difficult to install, and ALL fixtures need P traps. If there is no P trap, then you need to put one in. It will be a tight space, but you may be able to do it yourself.

2) Do you have a floor drain? If so, your sink will need a trap primer at the drain. Or you can pour water into the drain from time to time before it evaporates from the trap

3) If the smell is more of a sulfur type smell and it appears from running water in other places in the house, then it could also be due the type of tank you have if you are on well water

My offhand guess is that number 1 is your issue.

Without further info, those are some of my best solutions so far, but if none of these are potential solutions, then make the following tests

1) close the door to the bathroom and leave it for an hour or two. Return to the room. Do you smell sewer smell? Is it in the entire room or more concentrated in a certain area? If you don't have a floor drain and its everywhere, there could be a missing P trap from a fixture, a lose toilet flange, a cracked drain pipe
2) without running water, smell your drain. Does it have a sewer smell? Then the P trap either is not present or you need to clean the drain with a drain cleaner due to a list of reasons
3) run water. does the sewer smell increase or does one suddenly appear. Is the smell more a different odor than sewer. See if it is the water itself. If so, check other places. If they do not have the smell then you may have recently installed your sink and there is some smell related to the new valve. Then you would need to use it some more until it disappears.

Check the top list, though because I really think you're just missing a P trap

Sewer breaks below the slab, an open pipe somewhere, some issue with the water supply, are among some other issues but that depends on the test
