Classification of basin drains
1.Pressure type drain
Although the appearance of the press type drainer is relatively good-looking, the press type drainer is more likely to adhere to some dirt, and the entire drainer needs to be screwed down for thorough cleaning, and the operation will be slightly complicated, which is not very convenient to use. If the drainer is unscrewed and reinstalled, it may become loose and not secure.
2. Flip type drain
The flap-type drainer can be rotated in any direction at will, causing the water in the basin to leak out. After using the flap-type drainer for a long time, the airtightness will decrease, causing the basin to be unable to hold water. Or there is a situation where it cannot be turned; the structure of the flap-type water absorber is simple, easy to clean, and easy to replace.
3.Leak type drain
The structure of the drain type drainer is also relatively simple, which is similar to that of the kitchen sink. The process of disassembling and installing the drain type drainer is slightly more complicated than the installation of the push type drain and the flap type drain. Leaky sink basins cannot contain water unless closed with a seal.
Basin sink installation steps
1. First take out the purchased drainer, disassemble the lower part of the basin drainer and the flange, and then fasten the flange of the basin drain pipe under the basin. Be sure to tighten the flange. After tightening, you can place the basin on the countertop, and one end of the water pipe under the basin is aligned with the opening on the countertop.
2. Wrap some anti-seepage straps at the appropriate position of the basin drain pipe, and then align the other end of the basin drain pipe with the sewer, that is, the opening of the sewage pipe. Take out the parts, and use a wrench to tighten the joint between the drain and the drain pipe. After this is installed, check whether the two ends of the sink drain pipe are evenly adjusted and whether they are tightened.
3. Check whether there are no parts or flattened during the installation. After checking that there are no errors, start to test the water resistance in the basin. From the side, you can see if there is any water leakage from the sink. If there is no water leakage or water seepage, it means that the water pipe under the basin is installed; otherwise, you need to check it again or reinstall it again.
