Pop-up drain kit
1.The first step is to remove the old pop-up drain. To do this, first loosen and remove the trap, using channel-type pliers.
2.Next, remove the old pop-up assembly if there is one. Use channel-type pliers or a basin wrench to remove the mounting nut from the old drain tailpiece, then lift the drain assembly clear of the sink. Clean the sink before starting the new installation.
3.Disassemble the pieces of the new pop-up assembly and unscrew the mounting nut all the way down the drain tailpiece. Install
3.Apply Pipe-Joint Compound
1.Push the pop-up drain up through the drain opening from under the sink as high as you can. While holding the drain piece in place, fit the chrome ring into the opening from the top of the sink.
2.Screw the top ring onto the bottom drain piece as far as you can by hand. The most important part is to ensure it is not cross-threaded. It only needs to be hand tight to hold it in place--the rest is done from beneath the sink.
1.From under the sink, hold the pop-up drain pipe with one hand and tighten the nut upwards toward the bottom of the sink. Make sure the part for the pop-up nut is facing straight back towards the wall.
2.Tighten the drain nut with large pliers while continuing to hold it still. Do not over-tighten this nut, but you should not be able to easily spin the drain from side to side by turning the pipe under the sink.
1.Push the stopper into the drain, making sure the hole is facing the back of the sink.
2.Once the stopper is in position, move back under the sink to put the rod into place. Usually, there is a plastic washer on each side of the plastic ball.
3.With the ball on the inside of the nut, thread the nut onto the drain pipe. Push the pop-up rod up and down from under the sink to make sure the stopper goes up and down freely. If the pop-up is working properly, you can tighten the nut hand-tight. If the pop-up
8.Install the Pop-Up Lever
1.Feed the finished pop-up lever down through the hole behind the spout of the faucet. Before connecting the horizontal rod with the vertical lever, make sure your stopper is in the fully up (open) position.
2.Attach the strap and screw to the pop-up lever. This needs to be screwed tightly before connecting it to the horizontal rod.
1.Connect the vertical strap to the horizontal lever rod by threading the clip on the rod. One end of the clip needs to be on each side of the strap.
2.After the two rods are connected, check to make sure that the pop-up goes up and down as high as you want it to. If it doesn’t, you can make some adjustments to the rod connections.
3.Finish by reconnecting the trap to the drain pipe and checking for leaks by filling the sink up and draining it.
