Convert Two Hole SinkBasin for use with a Mono Mixer Tap

Converting a two-hole sink or basin for use with a mono mixer tap can be a practical and aesthetically pleasing upgrade for your kitchen or bathroom. Whether you're replacing an outdated faucet or simply want to enjoy the benefits of a mono mixer tap, here's a step-by-step guide to help you through the process.

  1. Gather Your Tools and Materials:

   Before you begin, make sure you have all the necessary tools and materials. You'll typically need an adjustable wrench, a basin wrench, a screwdriver, plumber's tape, a tape measure, a pencil, and, of course, your new mono mixer tap.

  1. Turn Off the Water Supply:

   Start by turning off the water supply to the sink or basin. You'll usually find shut-off valves under the sink. Turn them clockwise to shut off the water completely. If there are no shut-off valves, you may need to turn off the main water supply to your home.

  1. Drain the Faucet:

   To prevent any water from spilling when you disconnect the existing faucet, turn on the tap to allow the water to drain completely.

  1. Remove the Old Faucet:

   Use your adjustable wrench and basin wrench to remove the old two-hole faucet. Begin by disconnecting the supply lines and then loosen and remove the mounting nuts securing the faucet to the sink or basin. Carefully lift the old faucet out of the holes.

  1. Clean the Surface:

   With the old faucet removed, clean the surface of the sink or basin where the new mono mixer tap will be installed. Remove any debris, old sealant, or residue.

  1. Measure and Mark:

   Measure the distance between the two holes in your sink or basin. Most mono mixer taps require a single hole for installation. Use a pencil to mark the center point for the new hole based on your measurement.

  1. Drill the New Hole:

   Using a suitable hole saw or a drill bit of the appropriate size, carefully drill the new hole where you marked it. Be sure to follow the manufacturer's guidelines for the size and placement of the hole.

  1. Install the Mono Mixer Tap:

   Insert the mono mixer tap into the new hole, ensuring it fits snugly. Underneath the sink or basin, secure the tap with a mounting nut or plate provided by the manufacturer. Use a wrench to tighten it securely.

  1. Connect the Supply Lines:

   Attach the supply lines from the mono mixer tap to the corresponding hot and cold water pipes. Use plumber's tape to seal the threads and prevent any leaks.

  1. Turn On the Water Supply:

    Turn the water supply back on and check for any leaks around the new mono mixer tap. If you detect any leaks, tighten the connections as needed.

  1. Test the Tap:

    Turn on the tap to ensure both hot and cold water flows smoothly. Check for any irregularities in temperature or water pressure.

  1. Seal Around the Tap:

    To prevent water from seeping underneath the sink or basin, apply a bead of silicone sealant around the base of the mono mixer tap. Smooth it out for a neat finish.

  1. Enjoy Your Upgraded Sink:

    With the mono mixer tap successfully installed, you can now enjoy the convenience and style of your updated sink or basin. Whether it's in the kitchen or bathroom, this simple conversion can enhance both functionality and aesthetics.

By following these steps, you can convert a two-hole sink or basin for use with a monobloc mixer tap and enjoy the benefits of modern plumbing technology while adding a touch of sophistication to your space.
