Sinkology Kitchen and Bath Copper Sink Installation
INSTALLATION
Caution: All installation types need to allow room for faucet installation.
Ensure adequate clearance behind the basin for your faucet and backsplash,
as well as the full range of motion for faucet handles and spouts. All basins,
especially under mount and apron front installations, should be installed by
professional installers.

under-mount rim, also has a slight curve at the end to allow for
decorative and flexible drop-in installation.
BATH – DROP-IN INSTALLATION
Step 1. Flip sink upside down and trace outside edge onto craft paper or card-
board. Add second line that is 1/2” inside that line. Cut out the center of
the traced template using the second line.
Step 2. Position the template flat on the countertop to align with cabinet and
plumbing connections. Mark opening on countertop. Drill a 1/2” hole on
the inside of the scribed line to start cutout, then use a jigsaw to cut the
countertop.
Step 3. Position the sink in the hole and check for gaps around the rim. Eliminate
gaps by gently tapping the rim with a rubber mallet.

BATHTUB – FREESTANDING INSTALLATION
Before you begin, please read and follow installation and care instructions.
Observe local plumbing, building, and electrical codes. Ensure adequate and
level support floor.
If you are unfamiliar with installing bathroom fixtures and plumbing, we
recommend consulting a professional. Keep plumbing connections around the
tub easily accessible for future maintenance that may be necessary. Sinkology
does not accept liability for any damage to the floor, walls, plumbing, or for
personal injury during installation.
Preparation:
1. Unpack and inspect copper tub for damages. If damages are found,
contact supplier to discuss replacement.
2. Acquire tools and accessories needed for installation. For Sinkology
copper bathtubs, we recommend the following accessories available at
Sinkology.com retail partners.
A. Sinkology Drain & Overflow Kit – Model # SDT101-AC
B. Sinkology Copper Armor Kit – Model # SARMOR-101
C. OS&B Bathtub Rough-In Kit – Model # ITD35

Rough-In Waste Drain and Waterlines:
Note: Sinkology copper bathtubs are handmade so variations in dimensions can
occur. We recommend performing Rough-In procedures with the bathtub on
site to ensure the correct installation.
1. Loosely assemble selected freestanding bathtub waste drain or overflow
kit onto bathtub (leaving off the tailpipes at this time).
2. Determine water line locations for selected bathtub filler. Tub faucet may
need to be assembled prior to tub installation.
3. Place bathtub in final location and mark exact location on the floor.
4. Rough-In final plumbing waste drain and water lines into proper locations.
a. We recommend using OS&B Model # ITD35 rough-in kit. This
kit is designed to work with Sinkology copper bath tubs and
makes plumbing rough-in fast and easy, and ensures a water
tight connection.
Installation
Step 1. Final waste drain and waterline Rough-In’s should be completed and
flooring should be finished. Ensure bathtub is properly supported and
level.
Step 2. Double check bathtub faucet installation requirements before final bath
tub installation.
Step 3. Apply thread sealant or plumbers tape to any threaded connections that
do not have rubber gaskets.
Step 4. Apply plumbers putty to underside of drain flange and thread through
the bathtub and into drain pipe.
Step 5. Ensure waste drain and overflow is securely connected to bathtub.
Step 6. Place tub back into desired location and verify that bathtub is level.
a. If using recommended rough-in kit (model # ITD35), the tub will
need to be raised approx. 8” before lowering into final position.
Step 7. Finish installation by running a bead of silicone adhesive around the
base of copper freestanding bathtub where applicable.
Step 8. Allow sealants and adhesive to thoroughly dry before filling bathtub with
water. Consult sealant and adhesive manufacturers for dry times, as they
may vary.
KITCHEN – DROP-IN INSTALLATION
Step 1. Flip sink upside down and trace the inside edge onto craft paper or
cardboard by placing arm through the drain hole. Add second line that is
3/8” outside that line. Cut out the center of the traced template using the
second line.
Step 2. Position the template flat on the countertop to align with cabinet and
plumbing connections. Mark opening on countertop. Drill a 1/2” hole
on the inside of the scribed line to start cutout, then use a jigsaw to cut
the countertop.
Step 3. Use the sink as a template for the faucet holes. Center the sink in the
cutout. Use a pencil to mark the faucet holes. Remove the sink and use
a 1 1/2” hole saw to cut out the necessary faucet holes.
Step 4. Install clamps. Place notched end of bolt into the keyhole slot. Lower the
sink carefully into the countertop so the bolts enter without interference.
(Illustration 4A) Turn the claws out 90° so they grasp the underside of the
countertop. (Illustration 5A). Tighten the clamps gradually (Illustration
5B), in a sequence similar to that shown. (Illustration 5C). Please note that
some kitchen sinks are designed to mount either as an undermount or
drop-in. These sinks will not have install clamps and need to be installed
using 100% silicone.
CAUTION: Tighten claws only until sink rim is flush with counter top.
Do not over tighten.
Step 5. Treat copper sinks with Sinkology Copper Armor for maximum protection
(apply based on directions on bottle).
KITCHEN – UNDER-MOUNT INSTALLATION
Step 1. Flip sink basin upside down on countertop and mark countertop by
tracing the edge of the basin. Measure the distance between the edge
of the basin and the inside edge of the lip. Add a second line inside the
first according to this measurement.
Step 2. Cut countertop based on the inside, second line.
Step 3. Apply silicone around hole in the underside of the countertop and
position the basin.
Step 4. Use a level to make sure that the basin is sitting flush in all directions,
while pressing down to seal.
Step 5. Clean excess silicone and mount faucet.
Step 6. Treat copper sinks with Sinkology Copper Armor for maximum
protection (apply based on directions on bottle).
KITCHEN – APRON FRONT INSTALLATION
Step 1. Flip sink upside down and mark the countertop by tracing the inside
edge of the basin by placing your arm through the drain hole.
N
ote: We recommend a ¼” reveal on 3 sides when using the
under-mount style. For flush or built-up mount, cut countertop along
the outside line of basin profile. Apron fronts are designed to be
installed ¾” extended out beyond the front of the countertop.
Step 2. Cut the countertop based on the installation type.
Step 3. Place the basin and apply silicone as a gasket between the sink and
the cabinet.
Step 4. Install countertop.
Step 5. Apply silicone around the top edge of the basin. Place the countertop
around the basin. Ensure it is centered and remove any excess silicone.
Step 6. Install the drain mount.
Step 7. Treat copper sinks with Sinkology Copper Armor for maximum
protection (apply based on directions on bottle).
