How To Remove A Wall-Mounted Sink

We finally got everything that we needed to install our new sink, so we were able to take down the old nasty one. This was not hard, but not easy either when we didn't know what we were doing. I had to google search how to do it, and there just wasn't enough relevant tutorials on how to do it so I figured I should make my own. So here is a step-by-step guide on how to remove an old wall-mounted sink, pictures included. You're welcome.


So before I start, I think it's totally necessary to show you pictures of our old sink so you can understand why this had to happen. Obviously there are more pressing matters I could attend to here at the house, but this was one of the less expensive ones and made a huge difference in bringing the bathroom up to speed with the modern world.


 Besides how ugly and just unclean this sink looked, there were two different faucets. I mean, come on, we couldn't even have warm water.



So that's why I decided to buy a new sink. Well, also because I got the vanity on a crazy flash sale at Lowe's for $39 and how the heck could I pass that up? I couldn't.



1. First things first, TURN OFF THE WATER SUPPLY. There should be two knobs for hot and cold, just turn them both off and turn the faucet(s) on and let the water run until it stops.




2. Unscrew the supply lines from the sink and the knobs that you just turned off.




3. Unscrew the P-Pipe from the drain pipe.




4. Now this is the part that is going to require some muscle. The sink is actually mounted to the wall, so there is a wall-mount that it is hanging on. You have to lift the sink straight up to get it off the mount and disconnect it from the pipes. So once you do that, you should see what should look similar to this. Don't forget to put a bucket under the pipes if they're leaking at all because it could take you a while to install the new sink and you don't want any water damage.




5. Now just unscrew the bolts holding it into the wall.




6. And there you have it. You should find plenty of dirt and grossness where your old sink used to be. If not, you probably did something wrong (totally kidding).




Thanks for reading, I hope this helps someone who has no idea what they're doing like I didn't. Stay-tuned for my next post on how to install a new sink.
