Finding an amazing handmade sink is fun, but what about installing it? There are several steps for removing an old bathroom sink and replacing it a new one. You need to shut off the water supply, unscrew the taps and remove the old pedestal. This isn’t always easy. Screws holding the original pedestal in place may have rusted over the years.
