In all kitchens, the sink is now embedded in the worktop. This requires a cut as accurate as possible in it. If the cut is too big, the sink will risk moving; too small it will not pass or risk splitting if you force to put it in place. It is therefore the most delicate operation, which must be carried out with the utmost care.

Prepare the work plan
1. As before any intervention on the network, cut off the general water supply. Locate the sink location on your worktop referring to the user manual. Position your masking tape. Put the cutting edges of the sink on this adhesive.
2. From the inside pattern obtained, drill two holes at two opposite corners to introduce the jigsaw blade. Cut out the work plan by following the path. To prevent the fall from falling, hold it with tape.
3. Present the sink to check the cutout and adjust if necessary before removing the adhesive.
4. To protect your work surface from water infiltration, brush the interior of the cut with wood glue. Remove the excess if necessary.
Equip the sink
1. Drill the sink on the underside to install the faucet and the dump control. Drill a hole on each planned slot.
2. Turn the sink over and then, using the hole saw, drill on these two front holes. One corresponding to the emptying order, the other to the mixing valve. Adapt the drilling diameter to your accessories.
3. Install the mixer and run the hoses through the sink hole. Add the plastic holder, gasket and metal ring. Screw in the tightening nuts.
4. Adjust the position of the mixer and tighten the nut firmly.
5. Assemble the dump elements and position them under the sink and screw the drain grille. Do the same for the second bin.
6. Assemble the overflow and its hose without forgetting the seal and screw it to its location. Do the same for the dump command.
7. We will now mount the evacuation system. Screw the cable to the manual dump control.
8. Connect the overflow to the corresponding drain using the hose and the clamping ring. Do not forget the seal.
9. In the same way, screw the drain to the bungs.
Fix the sink and finish the connection
1. Apply the gasket to the underside of the sink. Position it in its location.
2. Screw the fastening system around the sink by hand. Connect the hoses to the cold and hot water inlets. Complete the screwing with the key.
3. Assemble siphon and fittings on the sink drain. Screw on the clamping rings and the seals.
4. Connect the siphon to the drain pipe using the connection hose and its gasket.
5. Sand and glue the end of the hose. Sand and then glue the inside of the PVC elbow of your drain, then assemble the whole thing. Your evacuation is complete.
6. For a perfect seal, apply seal around the sink. Smooth with your wet finger for a flawless finish. Remove any excess with a damp cloth.
7. Open the water inlets and check for leaks. Open your faucet and check the tightness of your exhaust system.
