Site the opening, by tracing the outline. Drill a 3/8 inch-diameter hole in each corner and begin cutting with a saber saw blade along the inside line. Install the faucet and the sink strainers. After installing apply a bead of silicone caulk around the perimeter of the underside of the sink. Flip t…he sink over and insert into the opening. Insert the mounting clips that came with the sink. Finally connect the P-trap. Join the faucet lines to the hot and cold supply lines with flexible supply tubes and connect the strainers to the waste line. Turn the water on at the shut-off valves, remove the aerator from the faucet, then turn on the water from the facet to flush the system. Reinstall the aerator after the water ran for a min or so.

There are three basic types of kitchen sink materials -- (1) stainless steel, (2) enameled cast iron, and (3) solid surface. . Stainless steel sinks are the most popular because they are easy to clean and heat resistant. Stainless steel is an alloy and derives it's stainless quality from both chrom…ium and nickel. However, stainless steel are sometimes prone to scratches and dents. . Enameled cast iron sinks have a thin layer of enamel (a material derived from glass) fused to a cast-iron surface. While relatively cheap, they tend to chip and stain easily. . Solid surface sinks are made from acrylic resins and a mixture of mineral materials.

If you mean the joint at the bottom of the sink drain that curves up and hooks to the pipe leading through the wall, it is called a "P" trap (due to its shape). The trap is held in place by two nuts, one attaches it to the sink drain and the other attaches it to the drain pipe leading outside. Loose…n the two nuts to disconnect the trap and pull down on it. Have a bucket handy as it will have water in it and will spill. If you have a problem with slow drainage, you might want to run a snake through the drain pipe while the trap is off. Installation is the reverse, be sure to use teflon tape or other kind of thread sealer to prevent leakage through the threads. ( Full Answer )
