Step 1: Prepare The Sink.

Sink turned over, apply self-adhesive foam gasket around the edge.

Clip the claw fixing brackets of the sink at the marks provided.

Step 2: Mount The Waste

Assemble the overflow by inserting the 90 ° elbow into the overflow outlet and the extension pipe, then remove the screw.

Place the overflow outlet in its intended location on the sink and screw in the retaining screw from the tanks inside.

Remove the drain grid from the bung, unscrew the threaded rod and disassemble the tank bottom and the gaskets.

Place the white gasket around the drain hole of the tank and the tank bottom over it.

From the tank’s underside, place the base of the drain with its black seal under the drain hole and screw the threaded rod from above.

For the automatic drain, start from below: insert the overflow pipe into the base fitted with its black seal, then tighten the ring.

From above, then screw the bottom of the tank with its white seal with the threaded rod.

Unscrew the automatic emptying clamping ring, unscrew the cable retaining ring and remove the cable from its housing.

Insert the emptying mechanism with its gasket onto the sink.

Then, from below, replace the cable in its housing and screw the cable retaining ring and the mechanism tightening ring back on.

Assemble the siphon assembly by inserting a conical gasket between each ring and referring to the manufacturer’s drawing.

Tank upside down, insert the gaskets on the bungs, then place the drain assembly and tighten the retaining rings.

Step 3: Secure The Sink.

To ensure waterproofing, spread wood glue with a brush on the cut edge of the worktop.

Place the sink on the counter in its final location.

If necessary, adjust the size of the siphon to your drainage system.

Cut a suitable piece of pipe with the hacksaw, assemble the elbows necessary to connect to your installation, glue the elements with special PVC pipe glue, fit the assembly and tighten the siphon retaining ring.

Secure the sink under the countertop by tightening the claw clips with a screwdriver.

Step 4: Assemble The Mixer.

Assemble the hand shower on the body of the faucet, inserting the gaskets at the fittings.

Then, hand-screw the supply hoses inside the faucet body, respecting the color code: red for hot water on the left and blue for cold water on the right.

Slide the ring with its gasket around the hoses and up to the base of the valve body.

Insert the hoses and the base of the faucet through the top of the sink.

From below, slide a gasket around the base of the mixer and hand tighten the clamping nut.

Adjust the position of the mixer on the sink.

Then, tighten the retaining nut with multigrip pliers.

Step 5: Connect The Water Inlets.

Start by shutting off the general water supply.

Then place a trough under the water inlet hoses and unscrew the lock nuts with an adjustable wrench and water pump pliers.

Ensure there is a seal in the hose nuts and screw them by hand onto the water inlet hoses. Then, tighten without forcing using an adjustable wrench and multigrip pliers.

You can reopen the general water supply.

Step 6: Make The Finishes.

Place the plugs in the bottom of the sink and try the drain.
