Installing a drop-in sink is a simple project, although care must be taken when cutting the opening in the counter; this step is delicate and requires dexterity. Nonetheless, any cutting inaccuracies can usually be overcome.
This guide provides instructions on installing a sink assuming that the plumbing is in place and ready to connect up. Drop-in sinks, whether with a single, double or triple bowl, are all equally quick to install because only one cut needs to be made. A sink made from cast iron or another heavy material will be more difficult to lower into the counter; for this job you will need a helper.
