A pedestal basin is a type of bathroom sink that consists of a basin or bowl that is mounted on top of a pedestal or column. The pedestal is typically made of ceramic, stone, or metal and serves to conceal the plumbing and support the weight of the basin.
To fit a pedestal basin, you will need to follow a few steps:
Assemble the basin and pedestal according to the manufacturer's instructions.
Locate the position where you want to install the basin and pedestal. Make sure it is close to the existing water supply and waste pipe.
Use a spirit level to check that the floor is level. If it is not, use shims to level the pedestal.
Position the waste and water supply pipes in the correct location, taking into account the dimensions of the basin and pedestal.
Fix the waste and water supply pipes to the wall using suitable brackets and fittings.
Place the pedestal in position and fix it to the floor using screws or bolts.
Attach the basin to the pedestal using suitable fixings, taking care not to overtighten and crack the basin.
Connect the waste and water supply pipes to the basin, again using suitable fittings and following the manufacturer's instructions.
Turn on the water supply and check for any leaks.
Finally, seal around the base of the pedestal with silicone sealant to prevent water ingress and damage to the floor.
It is important to ensure that the pedestal basin is installed correctly to avoid any future problems or damage. If you are unsure about any aspect of the installation, it is recommended that you seek the advice of a professional plumber or installer.
