This item was purchased
new from ebay total cost £20 inc new bigger waste trap ,
Tools needed: multy size hole cutter, drill,silicone sealer, screw driver,
Jig saw, sand paper, 19mm spanner, 22mm spanner, wood chisel or sanding
wheel attachment for drill.
remove old sink and taps the pipes screw off using 19mm spanner the
taps are fixed by a 22mm plastic nut.
Tell everyone "NO!!! switching pump on as you will get wet
!!!" """SHARON"""!!! ,
work top is 13mm chipboard with laminate coating this is fitted on
top of a fiberglass shelf, the fiberglass on my boat already had a
big enough hole for the new sink so only the worktop was cut using
a jig saw, the new sink is bigger so the area where the taps were
fitted was cut away to accomerdate the new sink, check sink fits ok
but dont screw it in yet! Drill holes for the taps which have now
moved as seen in photo to the end of the sink not behind as standard
When cutting holes for taps use whole cutter max size 2" drill
from inside cupboard but "only through fiberglass layer"
the pilot hole will come through work top which is fine two 2"
circles of fiberglass should now have been removed and 2 pilot holes
showing from top now fit correct size hole cutter 3/4 " for the
taps and drill down using the pilot holes the work top is slightly
too thick for the shank on the taps so a small amount of chip board
needs to be removed i used a rotary sanding attachment but a chisle
would do. Position then fix taps to work top and re-attach water pipes,
the sink waste is in the almost the same place i removed 10 mm from
waste pipe as i fitted new larger waste trap ,check all pipe connections
for leaks then when happy apply rubber + sealent screw the sink in
place, check all fittings again for leaks if ok sit back wash your
hands and enjoy yor new sink!! good look.markgc65.
