How to Put in a Hair Washing Basin

8/17/2011

Hair wash basins are a standard plumbing fixture in hair salons, but they can also be used in home and health care applications. A specially shaped sink or hair wash-basin can be installed in standard sink fixtures. Using the right tools and technique, it can be installed in a few steps.

 

1 Choose a location. Finished bathrooms are plumbed for sinks, which have three parts: hot water supply, cold water supply and a drainpipe. It should be located in a bathroom directly above these plumbing elements.

 

2 Make sure both hot and cold water supplies are turned off before installing the basin.

 

3 Mark the position of the hair washing basin's mounting plate on the wall with a pencil. Online hairstyling resources at Cache Beauty suggest a height of approximately 32 inches from the ground. The basin must be placed so that the bottom of the basin is at least 2 inches above the drainpipe opening in the wall.

 

4 Hold the basin's mounting plate in place and drill holes in the wall through the screw holes of the mounting plate with a drill.

 

5 Tap one drywall anchor into each screw hole with a hammer.

 

6 Hold the basin mounting bracket in place and screw it into place by driving screws into the drywall anchors with a drill.

 

7 Place the lugs in the hair washing-basin in the corresponding slots in the mounting bracket and press down until the basin is firmly in place.

 

8 Tighten all bolts that secure the basin to the mounting bracket with groove-joint pliers.

 

9 Connect the hot and cold water supplies to the hot and cold water fixtures of the basin with two supply hoses. Tighten the connections with groove-joint pliers.

 

10 Attach a sink trap from the basin drain to the drainpipe in the wall. Align the top opening of the sink trap with the basin drain and secure it into place by tightening the slip nut with groove-joint pliers. Align the bottom opening of the sink trap with the drainpipe in the wall and secure it into place by tightening the slip nut with groove-joint pliers.

 

11 Turn on the hot and cold water supply by turning the supply knobs in the wall counterclockwise. The hair wash-basin is now ready to use.
