I have this corner sink that I would like to install.

Image

Holes location on sink :

Image

I have moderate DIY skill and have previously installed a bidet that needed water hose T joint. So I think I can pull this one off.

There is existing water pipe for toilet and floor drain outlet-

T joint location for water connection:

Image

Drain /grate connection:

Image


The house plumbing type is pressurized , there is a main water valve that can be used to shut off water from the mains.

I could think of following parts :

1. Flexible water hose
Image


2. Flexible drain pipe

Image



3. Strainer Basket
Image

4. 2x Double headed coach screw ?

Saw them here at 4:00

Like this -

5. Any sealant ?

6. Water pipe T-joint




Any thing else I am missing? Any other tips to get this DIY job done would be great.

Thanks in advance

I have to admit I am lost. You have posted a lot of photos but I cannot understand what they have to do with the sink you got to fit. For example, is the strainer basket something specific for your hand basin or is it a strainer for a kitchen sink? Normally you would get a kit that fits at the drain side of the hand basin and may also include a way of operating the plug on drain.

Double headed coach screw, yes one side would go in the fixings on the wall but you still need washers, plastic sleeve for washers and a nut etc. The whole thing has to be long enough so the fine thread protrudes enough for the washers and nut to do their job.
Example: https://www.toolstation.com/shop/Screws ... Kit/p86297

Drainage ... you will need to take a pipe from the overflow and from the drain and lead them somewhere (and normally you would need a trap to stop rising smells).

You need a tap, hot and cold supply and flexible pipes which have the correct thread/fitting at the tap end and ideally a stop valve on each pipe.

My comment is probably of little help but I can only try... :dunno:

EDIT. Correction. The overflow most likely will drain from inside the hand basin so it would need an appropriate waste kit. Here are some examples https://www.tapwarehouse.com/category/basin-wastes

Not really clear on what you're asking? Bolting into the wall is easy, you've got a lot to consider before worrying about screws for that.
You can use a boss adaptor to tap into the soil pipe for the waste.Fit a trap as suggested, essential.
buy proper basin waste, that strainer thing is irrelevant.
It sounds like you only have a cold feed that supply's the toilet flush? You can use that for the cold tap but you'll need a hot feed too from elsewhere unless you're happy with cold only?
Wider pics of room and current pipe layout would help us understand what you're trying to do.

Sorry guys for not articulating , but rather making the post vague. I am not familiar with technical names ( as evident for number 3 typed strainer basket instead of basin waste plug :shock: ) of some of the parts , so just posted bunch of pics.

The whole point of the post was to get an accurate list of material/parts needed to get this DIY job done and also any additional pointers. As of now I have the black corner sink and the automatic faucet/mixer.

The walls are made of brick ,not plaster boards.
Only cold water feed is needed.
Thanks.

Is this the boss adaptor you are talking about ?

Trying to figure out what its called here in Australia ?

Also it would be great if some could post a link to the 'trap'

Trap- prevent smell from drains coming in:

Boss to tap into soil pipe:

2 good youtube videos showing this:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WiuI9EQF7iM Link to basic basin fitting
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kI1rI3VT6zs&t=253sShows using a boss to connect the waste

James generally shows clear video and instructions. Good laugh sometimes too. I have no connection to his channel/business.

This is all what I'd do in the UK though. You may have very different accessories. My only knowledge of Australia is early 90's Neighbours...

Apart from the advice above, corner units are a right PITA to fit you can't wiggle the basin over the mounting bolts easily so possibly a 2 person job. One to hold it in place whilst the other fixes it.

:withstupid: you cannot fit both these bolts in the wall and then offer up the basin, as they converge at 90*angle, one yes and then struggle underneath to locate the other and tighten into wall before putting washer and nut; sealant line between unit and walls, best bathroom anti mould fungus silicone; also if you have a mixer faucet and don't intend to supply the hot side you need to blank it or the cold might gush out of the hot faucet tail!
I am guessing you are intending to just run free flow, the waste to the floor gully drain, unusual and a trap will not stop smells from the floor drain!

Good you brought this up, makes me think its a 'real' waste pipe outlet ?
It is right next to toilet and it never reeked . So now I think if I put the waste pipe will the waste water actually drain or not .
How can I test this ?

The little corner sink will be used just to wash hands , so it will be mostly water and soap in the waste pipe.
Could just water + soap cause bad odor ?


Thanks
