hello everyone today I'm going to show you how to change out a 33 by 22 inch drop in sink I'll show you mine right now and that is what I have currently in and it says you know 6 inch deep 33 by 22 inch drop in sink don't really like it I think it's too shallow and the bowls are a little small to work on larger pots and pans with and the water splashes out of them because they're not deep enough so getting rid of it and what we're going to put in is this glacier big kit sink kit that I got from Home Depot the model number is five five two zero zero eight and the catalog number if you're going to search on on Home Depot's webpage is SM twenty thirty four you type that into the search and you'll get this kit now what I like about it is that it has two sinks of separate depths one is 8h deep and the other one's nine inch deep which is you know considerably deeper than mine plus the smaller sink can be used to rinse stuff out that will go from this sink it will spill over from this link to that sink so if you fill this sink up it'll just spill over into this sink you can't really see that in the overhead view but I'll show you out here as you can see the middle part is recessed inside the sink and you'll see that better one you know we put the sink in into the counter but our onto the counter the other nice thing about this is that it is a kit so it comes with a faucet the to brush drains and strainers the brushed nickel soap dispenser plus a stainless steel basket and a stainless steel sink grid these are really nice features then it's complete so you don't have to go out buy it and a new or anything to complete your sink it comes with everything you need to install and you know all the pipes you need to install your sink and make it work it doesn't come with the tools though so I'll show you that next so you can see and here's what you I again and but and this thing cost two hundred and fifty nine dollars plus taxes at Home Depot I really like it because like I said I didn't see too many that had this option of a double sink with a divider that was recessed which allowed this smaller sink to spill into the large larger sink which is a nice feature now here the tools you're going to need let's start with the screwdrivers you need a Phillips a standard I'm going to use an eighth inch adjustable wrench some teflon tape for the threads vise grip plumber's putty a channel lock set of pliers some caulking and they suggest that you use a sink wrench but I'm just going to use my channel locks to get that off and I'll show you how I'm going to do that so it's up to you whether you want to sink wrench or not and they also suggest in the package that you get a faucet wrench I am NOT going to use that and I'll show you why I'm not going to use that and flexible supply lines well I already have the supply lines as I'm replacing a sink that's already installed so you know I don't need those but if you're doing a whole new install yourself then you're going to need these things like I said I'm replacing a current sink so I'm not cutting the counter or any of that if you got to put a new sink in you got to cut the counter and do all those things and get all the parts you need and hardware you need to actually make this thing drain correctly but because this is an already installed sink my hardware is already installed underneath the sink and I'll show you that next okay here's what I have underneath my sink all right so all the hardware's already there from you know obviously there's a sink already installed as you can see I have a garbage disposal unit I also have if you can see in the back a copper line that copper line that has nothing to do with a sink it's just the water feed for my dishwasher but you will see here that there is a basically a drain from the dishwasher going back to the garbage disposal unit of course all this has to come up and we will do that as well I'm fortunate because in my sink I have shut off valves you may not have these if you don't have these I suggest turn the power out of the power the water supply off wherever you have access to turning that water supply off for the house and then put a set in I'm not going to show you how to do that but I'm assuming you have these if you do not have these then I would say turn you know shut the water supply for your house off and then drain the water from your system by opening up the taps and flushing the toilet and you know if you have an upstairs make sure you open up those taps too because that helps all the water drain out other than that I'm just going to close these valves off and do the job myself as you can see the fittings are already there the Flex lines are already there so it's it's very basic for me to take this apart here's the bottom of one of my sinks it's all PVC plastic piping which fits together but basically you just have to hand tight tighten that stuff you'll see that I have this connection here that it goes from one sink to the other that's something I have to deal with again there's my my dishwasher hose connection and there's something I'm gonna have to decouple from the sink and put back onto the other sink but again just showing you the layout again here's the power plug for my garbage disposal unit and of course that's going to have to be undone to taking off okay thanks Google Anthony now what I'm going to do first is disconnect my feet to sorry my drain from my dishwasher to the garbage compactor or garbage disposal unit I will also then disconnect this bike from the garbage disposal unit there's two standard head screws on it as well then I will get rid of this fitting which will separate the two sections apart and actually not this fitting but this fitting right here so I'm going to separate here I'm going to separate here take this pipe out and the whole point being that what I want to do is be able to take the whole sink out at one time and then work on it above while I'm you know basically not underneath my counter doing this okay then step before I'd after I take off this pipe and this fitting here just a pack here not fitting there okay then those pipes will be free for me to pull the sink up and not set in that direction next thing I'm going to do is take up disconnect these fittings here that go to the faucet okay and after that I will get rid of all the retaining Clips along the edges by unscrewing them that hold the sink it you'll see them all here sorry and I think they're just a standard or a phillips screwdriver you just unscrew them and off you go okay so I'll get at that and I'll show you the next steps thank you again well not thank you here we go this is a using a regular clamp and it's a standard screw I'm just going to unscrew that and pull the clamp off okay thanks okay as you can see I've loosened that clamp only took a standard screw and then he just pulls right off so there's step one pull that out of the way that my next step is going to be this horizontal pipe that goes across to the other Bowl in the sink I'm going to take that off next and it's my setup it's a standard bolt so there's one in the front and one in the back as well okay after those are off then you just unscrew this and the pipe should come off once again I'm just taking the two screws off so now this is ready to pop right off the garbage disposal a motor and unit now you notice that I've unplugged it so make sure you unplug it too because it as electrical device and you don't want that turning on or you don't want to play with that okay so it's unplugged now it's disconnected here from the horizontal pipe by taking that flange off and the two screws that hold it and as well as the dishwasher feed is off as well next thing we're going to do is from this pipe over here just take this flange off and it just basically hand-tight and if you can't get it off hand tight just you know pull it with your channel lock okay and again now this pipe is basically ready to come right off so we'll just wiggle it up boom pipe is off a little bit of dirt on it well that's normal alright so next we got that off I think the next thing I'm going to do is pull these off the feed lines to the sink which I'm just going to close now so you've clockwise closed them again twice closing come on above drain any pressure in the system which there's not off so that's that those are closed off you do that to Jake check you've shut them off before you unscrew them and that there's no water in there that's going to go crazy on you okay so next is you're going to get your 8h adjustable wrench and take the fittings off at the top that's it we'll start there okay as you can see I've disconnected the Flex hoses from the faucet assembly you see that the here's of the Flex hoses now that'd be water in them so what I did is just put a towel underneath and drain the water like that onto the towel and then pieces break it up like a big mess and alright okay here's a better view of the clips as I am underneath the sink as you can see and they all have to come up basically I'm using the Phillips and rotating counterclockwise standard okay okay I've gotten all the clips off and I suspect they're a lot easier to take off and they are to put on the next thing I'm going to do is detach the final pipe here from the bottom of the sink and da that's it basically pulls apart unscrew it pull it apart it's off everything else is still attached we're going I can detach that as well afterwards basically we just these are all adjustable as you can see there's lengths in here that can be adjusted to fit into each other right okay so the next thing I have is a 8 9 inches deep which means that it's a different length than the current one I have which I'm sure will pose some sort of challenge but we'll get it so that's it we're ready to pull the sink up alright so the sink is now detached I'm going to get a towel to put the sink on to so I can work on it on it without actually scratching things okay so I'll set that up and then I'll pull the sink up okay all the clips are off all the fittings are undone sink is ready to come out basically just pull on it it might be a little bit of a seal around the edges just gets under there and get stuck up and up just like that and go from there there we go so as you can see the sink is out now the reason I did that is because I'd much rather work on it outside of the counter that inside of the counter it's much easier so we'll go from there okay next thing we need to do is take the garbage disposal motor and unit off the sink and basically it's attached to the sink through first the fitting that holds sorry the flange that's held on to the bottom of the sink through this collar right here and all I need to do to get that collar off is put my screwdriver in there and turn boom call it turns the unit comes off just like that beautiful next we need to get rid of this collar because going to have to put it on our next sink to put this unit back on so there's one two three screws and this isn't the Phillips is not the right screwdriver obviously let's use the standard screwdriver on it there we go you could use a torx as well one two three as you can see and then I'll show you the rest here in a sec now I'm going to back these screws out almost actually you can take the screws all the way off if you wish and then basically it gets really really loose but you'll see there's a c-clip here holding all this together and that c-clip has to come off so I'm going to take that c-clip off just by using my standard screwdriver just lift it off off it comes then all the hardware comes off and as you can see so they used this is putty this is plumbing putty which is what they use to seal the sink take that off and there you go that's lanza there we go there's there's the flange of course the gooped it up with putting plumber's putty which I will use again to seal it myself and I'll show you that as well but that's the one side off okay Wow now we've got sink out we got to get the variables a unit up and what I need I don't need the strainer because this new sink comes with two strainers for the new sink and actually we only need one new strainer because we're putting the garbage unit back on but we're going to take this piece of pipe off because that it doesn't come with here's the strainers it comes with so off we go with the brass it goes there go that cease off now we're down to the sink everything else comes all the other hardware comes with the other sink this is I'm just going to keep like this you know basically I don't know what I'm going to do this let us think but I mean use it in the future somewhere else or give it to somebody or so I don't know anyway we're done with that so then you think the Glacier Bay comes with all this you hardware for the sink which we are going to install prior to installing the sink in the counter why because it's way easier to do it that way put the sink in first and then put the hardware in mmm doesn't sound like fun to me okay so next step is to put all this Hardware onto this music plus the bottom hardware as well but do that that's okay here we have a sink strainer flange assembly which we're going to install next first of all of course gotta take the thing apart so let's take this thing apart off it goes there's the paper ring that was on the other unit and this one has two rubber grommets which I'm suspecting they want to use on top so we'll use that the seal instead of the putty and I'm sure they'll work just fine so that's a bonus I don't have to use the putty I'll use is the rubber grommet that the washer that they gave us and we have to of course take this off Stu's to put the other pipe back into it okay so we'll do that okay here's the pipe assembly that we took off the original sink as you can see the plastic piece just comes off that's no problem we could use the original brass fitting or collar here but I'm going to do is take off the retaining wedge unit here off like that slide the collar off slide the washer off put the new washer on so I'll do that here's the new washer menu plastic seal like that a lot we'll put the locking ring back on and so you can see it it has an angle to it the angle goes down back onto that pipe and it's movable so you can put it to seal where you want and that's it that unit is ready to be put on the new sink so we'll do that next and basically just tightens on I am tighten it but I'm going to use my wrench here in a minute but I won't do that till after I get it on the side of Holcomb it it will help tighten everything up too as well okay so that's the next step put it into the sink before you put it in the sink don't forget the rubber seal put the rubber it's a thin rubber seal as you can see it's very thin it's about the thickness of a nickel the other rubber seal that goes on the other side of the sink is much thicker okay so we're going to do that next put it on the sink there we go nice put the rubber sink every ring on got next the paper sit seal sure that keeps it from coming off and then next the King collar check for fit on the on the other side of the sink here and make sure it's in the center you really can't tell from this side so I'll just high hand tighten it a little bit see where we're at let's take a look I get it on center pretty well nailed it there's a little emblem on and I'm experiencing a little CD of me but make sure we got it nice and in the center I could see the rubber ring and I don't like that so let's fool around with that get that straight that's hand tight it doesn't look like it's on this interval I like things perfect and I do it right first time we're driving Utz every time I so do you where you put it but I'm a little picky mm going to be looking at the center the rest of it my time in this house so look at it – why didn't you think that's OCD enough for me alright so there we go with that next tighten it up which we will do with my vice grips and channel locks just put on me which means there we go back to the center like I said you got the Jimmy with this if you don't care about the envelope you know which is right there that's fine and just play with it anyway either way you want I care so I'm doing it I don't know how to describe how tight you want that to be but I'm gonna say snap that's not want anything leaking really I just split around the whole flange again so it's okay because I actually tighten the collar which is what we wanted now you know it's really pace to put towels on the floor to keep from scratching the finish line nice nice ink okay so that is in there good it's not going anywhere okay nice and tight step one pudding well step one you know so there's that so the next we're going to have to put the garbage disposal unit into this hole in this sink now the originally was sealed with plumber's putty as you can see right there but I got to sink strainers with the other unit and it comes with rubber seals so I'm going to use rubber seals because they fit if it wonderfully and beautifully so we'll use those instead I'll clean the plumbers putty off and start fresh okay so I clean the plumbers putty off these flanges they're nice and clean again I used an SOS pad if you want to know and now they should be able to seal really nicely we using the rubber so what we're going to do again is you see the two thicknesses of rubber the thin one goes on the bottom of the flat flange we'll do that and the thick one goes on the top and what that will do is it will hold that in for us and next will be this piece which will continue to seal the deal as they say okay so here's how's that that's going to fit next on top will be this actually yes this way and then we're going to put the c-clamp in just to make sure it all stays together which is looks like it's going to be easier said than done but hopefully we'll do it it's not a Topsy clamp really there you go now the whole union is locked in and floating there next we use the locking bolts which will basically taking this whole thing to the bottom of this tank now there is something we got to keep in mind and I will show you that in a second one of the things you got to keep in mind is that the garbage disposal unit which in my case is 1/3 horsepower and these things are these screws adjust as you can see in height which gives you the ability to adjust to get a nice scale on the sink but the key is this is not a standard sink as you can see here you can't there these two holes are not parallel to each other this one is there an angle from that one which means that the output exhaust of this has to be facing towards it doesn't be perfect but it has to be very close because you can have a pipe straight pipe going to it now it's plastic so there's a bit of flex to that but it has to go in that direction okay so we'll do that get that set up so first I'm going to finger tight these get them about as even as I can get my eye and usually that just happens looks like it's going to happen because you know the sink stops at a certain point so let's take a look and see what that looks like underneath well it's a little off so you know I'm a little OCD about that so till I get it nice and straight there okay that's nice it's a bit of a trick right now I'm going to get it right but you'll have to play with it to get it to the point where you want like things nice and centered you know I am going to use a plumber's putty on this I don't like the space that the rubber seal puts underneath this so I'm going to take these off and put the plumbers putty on now I'll show you how to do that you know I think that's a better fit and a better a nicer look okay hello again every thought my putting the plumbers putty on I'm going to leave it alone I'm going to test fit this and make sure that we have a output holes going in the right direction and you believe well that's nice and just spins okay so it is the locking flange is attached to the to the hook to the motor so you can move it anywhere you want so we don't need to worry about that right now next thing I'm going to worry about is getting that flange on the bottom of the sink nice and centered so it looks nice for me you it's up to you how to wait how you do it okay that looks pretty well centered there so I'll tighten it down I'm just going lightly on it right now I don't want to move again and you just stand it so placement isn't that of this collar isn't as important as I thought because we can move the garbage unit the garbage but they used to call a carburetor but garbage disposal unit in any direction you want prior to tightening it so we'll do that right now hook it in we know it needs to be pointing over there at that other pipe you can eyeball it it's plastic like I said pipes plastic so there is some flex to it now you think I got it I'll test fit it see how it goes that's fit say my eyes pretty good square she's that do I will take it out the collar now you can't see the car you can't see the car just slows clockwise around there like that make sure we stay on line we spin the caller wants to move the motor around take next put your screwdriver in like this pull it tight and it didn't move on me so I'm going to move it back what's the name make sure I'm still pointing in the right direction see too little too much see that's pretty well packed alright so get the motor on it's pointing the right direction let's check the sink bottom make sure that it move looks good down there so one step closer next I'm going to check my pipes and make sure that they're going to work for me so what I'll do is if you see at the bottom let's think there is the pipe so these are really easy they just they call it off the during the collars and they just lift up sorry from a little shaky doing this way we'll be holding this one hand it's a bit of a trick over camera I'm doing this excuse me there it is I just took it off the top of the p-trap there's water in there so be careful with that there's supposed to be water in there next test fit it sorry about all that shaky but there's a test fit let's see if the two pipes go together if they do we're in business otherwise we'll be cutting some pipe take a look the best to fit it before you put it in the sink okay so let's get the fight all right let's see how that goes and as they say there's a bit of an angle to it but that'll it's plastic it'll move it'll be fine oh should be a bit of an angle anyway draining down in this case you looks up but it's still a rain down so think I'm there caller is a little a little my pipe my pipe might be just a little little short here if it is we'll change it but at this point just test that she's good that work yeah okay I take this off this is not going to fail decided to sit it's not gonna fit in the sink watch it good fitness a moment oh let's just do that there's nothing stopping us in the sink it's sinkhole from pulling all the way so we'll do it all right let's put it together here again slot either work here than it is to work underneath the sink under the counter sink sink counter once again hand tight is fine for these I never any problem with it that way tighten that up screws do it once again those are standards you could use a socket leg who cares give you an overview of what that looks like basically and we just screwing these screws in and tighten them right now okay so we have our piping installed and tightened up here as you can see next step is do yourself a favor put the faucet and the soap dispenser in this here and here just to make life easier for yourself and then we can put the whole assembly into the into well actually the next thing we need to do is put the seal there's a weather stripping or water seal that goes around the whole edge of the sink we'll do that afterwards actually now we'll do that now we'll do the what weather stripping now and then we'll do the faucet and the soap dispenser now this is a basically has a you know adhesive strip on it pull off the adhesive strip and put it along the edge Oh zoom it in right here back more okay so let's do that I'm going to go where long hitch that's the sink will compress a little bit once you put the clips this rubber so you can turn to the corners with it no problem not be super perfect but just near the edges where output can you on the backside you can't see it but it's pretty basic pull the heat still off I had silicone caulking but we don't need to use that or use this this is fine a little extra there we'll cut that off No beautiful okay that's that seals on there next we're going with the soap dispenser and the faucet so soap dispenser pretty straightforward got a seal underneath at the white seal as you can see I wonder if you can see it see okay there we go next soap dispenser white seal underneath little locking nut nice and snug hand tights good it's made of plastics we can work too hard on it then soap bottle and dispenser so Paul screws into it we fill it from the top so we never have to take it so far up so tight not down here there you go next is the faucet beautiful like it is beautiful faucet I'll do that next get you a better angle okay so next we're going to attach the faucet give you a closer view what's going on here excuse me for the shaky okay give us a center hole use the faucet you can see that there's a brass ring and a plastic ring both of those go underneath the sink and here's the locking nut so going to be locking that off all the way off slide the Rings and everything off you there's grass let's go to set of brass pipes on it or copper pipes so careful with that you can move them around a little bit there on this you try not to damaged anything there we go one two it's off take them all off as you have to put it through the hole first and then put them back on okay so there we go the unit without the brass rings everything just detached so basic I don't know if your left or right-handed I'm right-handed so I'm going to go with the right hand on that side you can see it give you a bit of an angle there that's it and it's a beautiful faucet it comes with this unit there's everything through the back I'm going to put the nut I mean the wok the plastic washer the brass washer and the brass nut on so plastic washer first through the first those second third play around whether you get it all step one and then the brass nut now you'll see that this is tagged reason stag it's the support it's the hot water pipe so we'll make sure we get that straight it's a bit of a job getting all this stuff it's not past this but again play with you wide receiver lot easier get it okay so we have a faucet on nice and straight now we just need to Snug it up I'm going to use my channel locks just take that nut up and of course at the top it's all going to move to our stove taking in but it's just to play with it to get it right alignment to me is everything perfect behind get this right now because you don't want to be doing this underneath the counter that's good studies I want to be okay that's nice and tight now you'll see that the sprayer hose is off and they want you to put it weight on it to keep the spray head coming back the weights right here you can see and it's all in one piece but it takes to fill up secure to get it apart that's what we're going to do quickly you get a part you can see that or not fit comes apart and put it on actually there's two screws you need to take apart screen number two sorry not giving your grading a look at that basically that's it I'm going to put this on loosely once it's on loosely then I'll adjust it afterwards because I want to clip it on first to No loose okay then we have this coupling you'll see that these two tabs on right here and two tabs on the actual copper pipe those tabs go into each other so split that together you can see it probably in this life there we go like this and the weight is on so we can attach it here click I'm out you'll see the weight at the end of the hose here and I want to give myself as much as I can so I can pull it back down so I'm going to go right around there that seems to be quite a bit it's up do you just it I'll probably be adjusting it myself we'll put it there for now tighten it down no actually I think the bottom of the hose would probably be the best place to put it so I'm going to go there the bottom of the loop gravity works better that way so right now I've got the faucet head all the way in I'm moving this pretty well the center bottom of the loop that will give gravity its best chance at that and give you the most length that's useful all right there tighten it taemin everything nice and snug okay now you'll see here two red fittings for the hot and cold wat water as you can see right there now normally I would put teflon tape around these but as you can see they're cut square so really there's no point this in teflon tape is not going to seal or help seal them at all the actual seal happens when with another seal here at the bottom so there's no use – no need to use teflon tape on these okay so remember the one with the red is the hot water okay so next is putting the sink in the actual hole and attaching the lines alright next we're going to put the next we're gonna put the sink in the actual counter here we go pick the whole thing off and try not to scratch the counter or sink or anything else now we've got an issue with power cord here's it's pretty nice okay I can see where the old sink was so I'm going to try and line it on those old scribe marks it's going to fit perfect but close enough is good beautiful okay so that's the sink in the counter of course we're not done we got to hook all the lines up underneath okay well got the sink in in the counter and I'm going to lock it down but I want to show you the first problem I've had with this system first off because the sink is not the geometry all the holes on this sink is not the same as the geometry as the holes and the other sink so what do we got got a problem the pipe hits right here all right so I got to put the p-trap right here into this pipe I don't think that'd be a big issue but it'll require some cutting and probably cutting out this elbow right here not a big deal all you need is a hacksaw and I'm going to do that myself and I'll show you what I'm what I'm going to do to get it done okay after looking at my situation I notice that there's an extension pipe here already so I'm going to take that extension pipe off and that will probably be giving me enough space to put the p-trap in plus as you see I have another extension pipe down here that it's going to come off and we'll make it fit I'm thinking I should clip it down first but you know yeah I'm going to lock it a lot put the locks in for the counter in sorry for the sink counter sink in the counter that attached the sink basically permanently to the counter first and then I'll do the final plumbing which will include taking off this unit this piece this piece and making it fit correctly reason for all this is that the geometry of this sink is not the same the holes are not parallel to each other one is further back and the other ones you know closer in so that's one issue ahead of the sink the other thing I'm going to do too is attach these lines the water lines first because they're leaking a little bit of water and I've had enough of that so I'm going to get underneath and do that and I'll show you that finished and then we should be pretty well finished but I'll show you every step I do from here on okay here's my issue I have so here's how I'm going to handle take this extension off the bottom of this pipe take this p-trap out I take this extension obviously there you have to play around with it themselves next would be getting this in there and then it has to fit onto this pipe well we got a small problem this pipe can't go far enough in so I might be able to get there but I don't want to force it and all I need to do is cut that pipe and this pipe and we'll be fine so I'm going to take about two inches two and a half inches off this pipe and I'm going to use a hacksaw to cut through it and that should give me all the length I need okay be back with that pipe okay I cut my to two inches off I'll test fit it looks good put the p-trap on it hopefully you can see all that you can't right way yeah that's right there so here there we go nice fit okay and ready to doing that I'm gonna need another locking flange and on on this which I'll put it right now right here oh man this that's it this doesn't think it's easy to cut just use a hacksaw ah you said you want to do as little of this stuff underneath this sink as you can seriously it's not fine tighten them all up my hand takes good nice thing about this it's actually giving me a little more room under my sink because there's less pipe then there used to be so tighten that out man take across the thread anything take and take okay that's it all my drains are in nice and tight and I got less of them which is a great thing like I said do you remember the geometry on this sink is not the same as a standard one to the this the drains are not side by side okay so next I got to put in the feed lines I don't know if you're going to be able to see that or not do my best it's kind of hard to see see how close I can get you to it yeah there should be able to see me do it and I'm going to use my adjustable for that primarily because it's smaller than my channel lock and a little fit okay this is the not fun part I guess I'm putting I haven't put the clips in yet but no lucky Goods but I'll do that last this is not fun this is the not fun part of this whole thing okay cold cold I always screw them backwards till here click that way I know I'm not gonna cross thread up lettuce current finger tight tight as I can one for your day one yeah now you want to try and wrote these flexco cables or flex hoses out of the way of this which is the areata of the the spray head host because if they get in the way of that thing when you go pull it out it's going to get nut come back it's not gonna work correctly this easy said that most for me anyway right now remember at least these things are made these pipes are made at a copper so make a bit yeah that does not feel right for me I think it's cross true that's not right not gonna take and these are brass fitting so you don't want to really force anything that's it oh yeah another thing do you have to have another wrench to hold it from twisting the other the other fitting and I'm not getting a good lock on that so I'm taking that off and I'm gonna take a look at it I'll pause it right here and tell you what I found okay what I found was I was cross threading it looked like it was a bit of dirty inside a cup link so I finished that and the way you can tell whether you're getting it on there correctly or not is the bottom of it fitting right here will be loose wobbling around if you don't have it down all the way of course you've gotten tightened down this is nice and snug as well same here now I'm going to use a 13 millimeter open-ended wrench to hold it while I tie it tightly with my adjustable and what that does is it keeps me from turning them copper pipe and snap as I said you want to do as little as this this is just one of those things you got to do under the show there's just no way around it fortunately they gave us a long enough copper pipe out of the faucets but you don't have to have a special wrench to do this thank you bless your bake Oh whoever your parent company is built a sink you did it well yeah that's all favor of doing that okay that's nice and tight now if you can see this one because it's higher now hopefully about coal correct I didn't go out I know I'm knocking on a couple from here I'm going to cut uncouple from the sink the valve side okay nice and tight next add water so put it up one let's see what we got test that up and we don't have any water underneath which is a major plus that's probably hot on the way back dust that out in a second let's do it on the other day really like this thing is looking good and I would be off they're not done yet you got to put the clocking clips all the way along the bottom plus the drain for the dishwasher has to be hooked up to do two garbage disposal in it right there that's a two-second job do that right now okay again I want to keep the hoses out of the way other sprayer head so I'm gonna feed it around the front here sit put that clamp down right now yeah it's nice until they hit that valve all right that I will have to work around somehow work around it but not a big issue next is the clips well one more thing I wanted to show you which is really neat one of the features I like on this faucet show you something very got the trees you change it to pray oh but you forgot it on sprayed is that going to matter no go back a stream anyway nice feature okay I got to put the clips in and as a you know I'm going to go with this basic configuration one two three in the front three in the back two on the sides which is what they recommend I'll show you above because you know maybe I'll show you under the sink afterwards but it's pretty tight in there and it's hard to do both filming and to hand jobs at the same time so I'll show it after it's finished but again don't over tighten these because they won't break okay here's the clips and there is a small issue with these clips being that if your counter is only Act 3/4 of an inch thick like mine is they don't seem to go all the way down so what I did to fix that is put this on the tripods as you can see jeez excuse me alright what I did to fix that was take the clip and my channel locks and just squish it a bit like that that gave me the distance that I needed to make this clip actually give me subtraction okay so you can play with it you may not have to but I did okay you once again spending another clip I actually have to bend them all because they're not short enough to deal with my counter depth which is very short it's about oh I'd say about half an inch of counter so all I do is take my channel locks bite down on them screw it of the way there sorry guys bend them like that and that makes them much better clips they work a lot better that way okay so that's how I did how to happen to deal with mine if your counters in each SiC or thicker than mine which I think was out half an inch then probably these will work just fine right but if it's not then you you screw them tight and they won't be tight enough you keep going you'll strip them so if you screw them to the end like that and they still are loose and you keep you know I'm screwing you're going to strip something something's going to break so if they're loose when you get to the end stop take them out back to screwed up then them down put them back in again and try again word of warning squeeze them too hard and this will happen to break okay like I broke mine but fortunately on this one the bottom still there so you can still screw up and get that to give give me a useful clip but it still worked it's just broken okay so don't squeeze it too hard oh well they will break okay put the clips in into the corners where it's easy to get both your hands in to hold the clip and then use the screw at same time okay again in the center between the two six is probably the best place there's more space there except in the back where the faucet is so you don't have to Jimmy around with that in the back but there we are okay okay everybody here's my sink fully installed I swear it looks six times bigger than the old one but as you can see it looks really nice it functions really well and I would definitely recommend you buying one of these any time it's a great little machine great little sink a lot of features love a double size sink with twice the size of my old one from the looks of it even though it fits into the same hole it still looks like 2 times bigger thanks for watching hope you enjoyed it sorry I forgot the bonus feature that they come with these nice stainless steel racks for the bottom of the sink which is another added feature which I really like once again thanks for watching just wanted to show you that you've got some extras on it
