Kitchen Sinks

Kitchen sinks are specialized bowl-shaped plumbing fixtures designed to accommodate and assist with the everyday functions of a kitchen. Primarily used for cleaning vegetables, washing dishes, supplying water, and holding dirty dishes, kitchen sinks come in a range of sizes and designs, from single to double bowls, that cater to a variety of kitchen uses. Kitchen sinks are often made of stainless steel as a means to lower the cost, increase durability, and benefit from the hygienic and corrosion resistant properties of stainless. Kitchen sinks are paired with kitchen faucets and typically installed into the kitchen counter.

How do you install a kitchen sink?

The most important and often most difficult part of installing a kitchen sink is securing the connection to the sink’s drain. To install, figure out the location and mark the area on the counter with precise measurements. Place the sink upside down on the counter, making marks on the center of the sink and the counter and aligning the two. Trace the sink and remove it, making sure the trace is parallel to the edge of the counter. Connect all the markings, but remember to round off the corners. Using a jigsaw piece, cut the traced piece out and remove it. Check the sink fitting and adjust or trim accordingly.

How do you measure a kitchen sink?

Measuring a kitchen sink includes the length, width, and depth— all of which have their own process of being measured. For the length, measure left to right from one edge of the sink to the other with a measuring tape. For the width, measure from the back edge to the front across the sink bowl or basin. For the depth, take a straightedge and place it across the top of the sink. Use a tape measure to measure from the deepest part of the sink to the bottom edge of the straightedge ruler.

How do you unclog a kitchen sink?

The recommended first step to unclogging a kitchen sink is to use a plunger upon the removal of any standing water, but leaving enough to submerge the head. If this method fails to dislodge the clog, boiling water or baking soda can be poured down the drain. If the sink includes a garbage disposal, check if this is the source of the clog issue immediately.
