Youngstown, OH (PRWEB) June 07, 2012
“Bathroom sink installing is the latest trend today and gone are the days of the shiny white porcelain bowl,” according to Carol Beall, wife of Mr. Rooter, president of Mr. Rooter Youngstown. According to Carol, bathroom sinks are available in all shapes, sizes, colors and materials and in all types of price ranges.
“Bathroom sink installation can be done on a table top, on a counter top, on bathroom cabinet, or can be freestanding using trendy pedestals or trunks that cover the drainpipe,” says Beall, who helps husband Bob run the plumbing business, manage the children's busy schedules, takes care of all of the restoration work and still has time to prepare great meals for a family always on the move. Beall's wife recently addressed some of the questions women are asking through the LIVE chat located at Mr. Rooter's new Media Center Website.
Mr. Rooter explained the steps to a mother of three boys on to how to replace a counter top sink after one of the boys dropped a heavy object, breaking the old porcelain sink. Beall's wife says choices are available for corner sinks that can be made to fit in the corners and adds, “choose a sink that goes with the plumbing and space available and also with the general décor of the bathroom. Replacing bathroom sinks can also give a new look and style to any bathroom.”
Mr. Rooter's Tip Of The Day
A typical bathroom sink installment will take 4 to 6 hours. Whether the sink is damaged or it's just time for an update, replacing a drop in bathroom sink is easy.
Step 1. The first step is to get the old sink out! Turn off the water supply under the sink and disconnect the supply lines and the sink trap.
Step 2. Use a utility knife to cut through the sealant around the rim of the sink.
Step 3. Lift the sink off the counter top.
Step 4. Use some white vinegar and a non-abrasive scrubber to remove any sealant left around the sink. If it’s really stubborn it may be necessary to use a putty knife.
Step 5. Install the new drain assembly and faucet before dropping in the new sink. If more information is needed on removing or installing a faucet, easily find information on faucet replacement and many other expert tips here.
Step 6. Apply a bead of good quality silicone caulk around the sink cutout.
Step 7. Set the sink and press gently to make a nice seal.
Step 8. If the sink has clips under it just tighten them into place.
Step 9. Once the sink is installed, use some silicone caulk to seal the outer rim. (Hint: have a damp clean cotton cloth handy to keep wiping away any smears, or messy fingers).
Step 10. Then all that’s left to do is reconnect the supply lines and the drain, and then turn the water back on! Time to start that Beall Family Favorite: Carol's Meatloaf.
