Installing a pedestal lav
Posted by Dave K. on July 24, 19100 at 17:21:04:
Replacing a 22-yr old wall hung lav with a pedestal model. Does anyone have a link to some installation
instructions? (preferable ILLUSTRATED instructions...I do good with pictures!!!) Found a nice set of instructions
for intalling the toilet at kitchen-bath.com, but they had no pedestal instructions. (btw, the instructions that came with
the ped. & sink (American Std) are laughable. On a piece of paper about 4x6 and they basically say, if you don't know
how to do this you're an idiot). So, OK I'm an idiot.

Concerns:

1) The old wall hung bracket was 31" from the floor. The new sink will sit approx 34" from the floor. What do
I use to hang the new sink if there is no stud behind the wall?

2) How do you balance/shim the sink & ped?

3) The drain/trap for the old sink is about 1" - 1 1/2" "short" of where the drain on the new sink will be.
(sounds like I need a plumber!!!....or a father-in-law who's in town!!!) What's involved in putting in a longer
pipe extension from the wall?

I know, I know. I am the home owner that has plumbers dreaming of that new bass boat!!!

Thanks for any feedback.
