How to Plumb a Bar Sink

A bar sink is a great addition to any home bar, but before you can start using it, you need to know how to plumb it properly. This can seem like a daunting task, but with a little bit of know-how, you'll be able to do it in no time! In this blog post, we'll walk you through the steps of plumbing a bar sink so that you can start enjoying your new home bar as soon as possible.

  • Start by turning off the water to the area where you will be working. This is usually done at the main water shut-off valve for the house. Once the water is turned off, open the faucets to release any pressure that may be in the lines.
  • Next, disconnect the supply lines from the shut-off valves. You will likely need a wrench to do this. Once the lines are disconnected, remove any mounting hardware that might be holding the sink in place.
  • With the sink removed, you should be able to see the drain assembly. Use a wrench to loosen and remove the P-trap from the drain line. Be careful not to lose any of the parts!
  • Now it's time to install the new sink. Start by attaching the supply lines to the proper shut-off valves. You will want to use Teflon tape or pipe dope on all threaded connections to ensure a watertight seal.
  • Next, place the sink in position and install any necessary mounting hardware.
  • Finally, reattach the P-trap to the drain line and turn on the water supply. Test all of your connections for leaks before using your bar sink!
  • If everything looks good, then you're finished! Congratulations on a job well done.
