Bathroom Demolition


Bathroom demo can get messy. The reason? Even when you shut off waterlines, there is still water in traps, in toilet tanks, and in the water lines themselves. When you undo a pipe connection, some water will inevitably get on the floor, where it will mix with the dirt on the bottom of your shoes. Place old towels or scraps of carpet at the doorway for when you have to run out for tools. And have buckets and towels ready, no matter how dry your project looks initially.

 

Removing an old sink and vanity

Step 1. Turn off the water at the shutoff valves. If there are no shutoff valves, turn off the water at the main valve or water-well pressure tank.

Step 2. Single-lever faucets come with cop per tubes that extend down from the faucet valve. Remove the nuts that hold the supply risers to the wall- mounted valves.

 

Step 3. On bathroom sinks with dual faucets, each faucet is connected to its shutoff valve with a separate supply riser. Remove the under-sink nuts using a basin wrench.

Step 4. To remove the sink’s waste line connection put a pail under the trap and loosen the nuts using adjustable pliers. Turn the nuts counterclockwise.
