Installing the kitchen sink drain seems like a task that requires special knowledge, but when you know the steps involved in such a project, it\'s actually a fairly easy job.
Here are some tips for installing the kitchen sink drain. 1.
Make sure the water is off before starting the project.
Before removing the old sink drain, you should place a towel and a bucket on the surface under the \"u\" pipe to collect any water that spills when removing the old pipe. 2.
Unscrew the nut fixing the tank basket and remove it.
Loosen the nut using a pipe wrench, remove the existing drain pipe that connects the drain pipe to the lower part of the sink.
Turn \"u\" to the wrong side ,(upside down,)
Drain excess water
The old pipe goes into the place of the central drain pipe, unscrew it and take it out.
This is usually a pipe through the back end of the sink. 3.
Clean all the places around the area where the tank basket is removed to remove any debris so that the new tank basket does not leak after installation.
You should purchase a drain kit before the project.
Special drain kit can be purchased at hardware store.
These kits are helpful for novices as they ensure that all individual components are assembled together and threaded properly.
They also contain important installation directions that are easy to understand.

First, wear a rubber gasket.
Then, put a cardboard washing machine.
After the gasket is tight and fixed, add the nut and tighten it.
To avoid leakage, it is important to ensure that the basket is centered. 5.
You have to follow the instructions of the drain kit on how to assemble each piece.
The kitchen drain kit will contain all the appropriate cutting pipes and sealing joints and will be properly measured and cut.
To avoid leakage, make sure every connection is safe.
You will need to use plumber tape to wrap the threads for each connection. 6.

Make sure all connections are tight and secure so that there is no leakage.
Adjust the extension part on the drain to make sure it matches the basin of the sink.
Installing the drain in the kitchen sink is a basic project that most people can handle without the help of a professional.
If you have any problems where you are not sure what you are doing, or if you are worried that you may cause damage, you should call a professional plumber.
