You’ve just finished a big remodeling project and you’re ready to install the sink. You should be able to find all of the necessary plumbing supplies at your local hardware store. The first step is always planning where you want it installed in your kitchen, which will determine how many pipes need to run from beneath the floor. Next, purchase an appropriately sized utility sink and make sure it’s compatible with whatever type of faucet you plan on installing- whether that’s a pull-down sprayer or a single handle faucet.
First, you have to shut off the water supply. Then you can attach a waste line to the valve underneath the sink by using a saddle clamp and Teflon tape. After that, all it takes is tightening up some nuts with your wrench so the line is secure.

Can you use bath taps on a sink?
This is a question that I’ve been asked many times, and it’s not always as simple as an answer. For example, if your sink has two taps in the basin, then yes you can use them for both washing up and filling the bathtub.
Bath taps are designed for bathtubs. Using them on a sink is not recommended because they could break under pressure.
