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, resulting in the basin not being able to hold water. Or there is a situation where it cannot be turned; the structure of the flip-plate 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 disassembly procedure of 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
- 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.
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, which is the opening of the sewage pipe, and adjust the accessories of the basin drain pipe or 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 were no errors, I started to test the water resistance inside the basin, and reflected from the side whether the drainer was leaking. 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.
What to do if the basin sink is blocked?
If the drainage runs slowly, it may be a problem with hair clogging. The following method is not charming, but it often works. That is, use a hanger and straighten it so you can slide the curved end drain hole. Move it to the position where the hair is shaved, and slowly pull it out of the drain to pull the hair out. To remove the problem of accumulated hair clogging, you can also pour some detergent or similar products into the sewer and wait 30 minutes to rinse and drain water before running.
If you don’t want to use harsh chemicals, you can also pour soda powder into the sewer, followed by half a cup of white vinegar. Cover the drainage with a rag and quickly plug it into the drainage hole. Baking soda and vinegar will react, so it is important to keep the excretion holes covered so the content does not escape. Slowly remove the oil plug after 30 minutes, and pour 1 gallon of hot water into the drain to solve the problem of clogging.
Cleaning method for basin sink
1, when the basin water switch is in the state of pop-up drainage. Hold the pop-up drain switch with your hand and turn it counterclockwise to unscrew the drain switch cover.
2. After unscrewing, rinse directly with water, or use a small brush to wash.
3. A lot of dirt such as hair will also be gathered in the sewer, and then use a small pair of tweezers to clamp out the dirt such as hair that has accumulated in the drain. Rinse again with water.
4. Make sure that it is flushed, and then tighten the cover of the water switch in a clockwise direction.
