Step #5: Bring the new faucet out of its package. Read the instructions that came with the kit and see if you need to perform some pre-installation assembly before you move on.
▣ So, if you want a seamless look, opt for undermount models. Drop-in sinks help in keeping the water off the countertop. Choose whichever suits your needs and convenience.
Keep the clips as they may be useful, if the new replacement is of the same size as the old one. In case they are damaged, you need to buy new ones. Usually, they are packaged together with the sink. Apply caulk on the underside of the sink and on the borders of the countertop cavity. Next, you have to install the sink in place, with the help of the clips. Align them in place and match them with their mates on the underside. Lower the sink in place of the countertop, before fixing in the nuts. That should get it positioned well. Be careful and watch your fingers, while lowering it in the countertop.
▣ Look for drainage points in the sink. Most manufacturers now place the drainage point towards the back of the sink, rather than the center. This provides more space and convenience of use under the faucet. You also get more space in the under sink cabinets, as the drain pipe also moves away from the center. Most models have the drain points at the left or right, which helps in better drainage after utensils are piled in it.
