1. Assembling the faucet

Before you mount the sink to the wall, you should mount the faucet to the sink.

To do this, first insert the seal into the tap and then screw it into the hole provided in the sink. You can use the adjustable wrench to tighten the faucet.

Our tip: In some cases, the drill hole for the fitting is not yet available. Here you will find a guide to drilling a faucet hole .

2. Installation of the drain fitting

Water drains (pipes and hoses) are fitted to the sink by a plumbing professional

The drain fitting consists of several parts that must be assembled in a specific order.

First, the upper part of the drain fitting (the so-called "strainer valve insert") is inserted into the hole in the sink and secured from below with a large nut.

3. Attaching the sink to the wall

Use the spirit level to make sure the sink is level.

Mark the position of the mounting holes with a pen.

Then you drill the holes and attach the sink to the wall with suitable dowels and screws.

Our tip: For hard tiles, the use of a diamond drill bit for the drill or the angle grinder is mandatory!

4. Connection of the water pipes
