Step-5: Install the kitchen faucet inside the sink:
Install the kitchen faucet inside the sink deck. Attach the faucet’s supply tubing, tailpiece inside the gasket. It will seal the spout to the sink. Then screw the mounting nuts. Make sure that the tap can swing in a full arc under the sink’s deck.
Step-6: Apply a Plumber’s Putty over The Strainer
Apply a thin layer of plumbers putty over the strainer’s lip. Now push the putty towards the sink’s drain hole, then skid the washer, gasket, and housing. However, add a pipe-joint compound to its extra threads.
Press the thread on your middle finger. And give tightened the locknut onto the strainer with the pillar. Tighten the nut carefully while holding the strainer on your hand.
Step-7: Set out all the accessories
It is the final step of this method. You have to set out the sink and connect the PVC pipe under the countertop or the sink. If you still notice that your strainer won’t set out the countertop hole, you can use some silicone caulk.
Join the sprayer hose to the faucet’s threaded tailpiece. Then cut the PVC pipe for connecting the trap adaptor. Dry out the feet length of PVC. Cut the pipe with a utility knife and coat the line with a PVC primer. Now join them together.
Push them immediately and hold them for 25-30 seconds. Then set out all the threaded connections. After that, this is time to set out the dishwasher drain. For that, take a dishwasher drain line. And set out the waste nib to the tailpiece. Then take a screwdriver and tighten the hose clamp.
However, remove the aerator from the sink’s faucet. Then check out its density by running the water. Look carefully and find any leakage along the supply and drain lines. If there any, tighten the nuts approximately.
The cost of setting up a kitchen sink drain pipe varies on your demands. If you hire an expert, the price will vary from $50-$300 based on your sink. Sometimes it depends on the sizes and types of the sinks. It isn’t easy to set out a kitchen sink for connecting the new sink and faucet. The kitchen tailpiece and the waste line may give you a headache about which side to start.
It is better to stars from the tailpiece. Then go beyond the waste line. It would be a wise decision to buy a bare tool despite getting an installing kit. Now you can do this installation task by stick to “how to install a kitchen sink drain pipe | a few simple steps.”
