If you are replacing an old sink or basin with a new one, it is usually much easier to saw off the old supply and waste pipes and the screws securing the fitting rather than trying to undo them. Loosening old, corroded fittings is at best frustrating and often impossible. Cut the pipes where they are easy to get at both at this stage and later when the new basin is installed. When the old fitting is off the wall, the taps can usually be removed comparatively easily if you want to use them again.
Clean the ridge: Clean the ridge with denatured alcohol and leave for a while to allow the alcohol dry off.
So how do we choose when to buy is not 304 steel? The current way to the naked eye is harder to distinguish. There is stainless steel on the market identification of stainless steel by detecting the content of nickel in the stainless steel to detect different types of stainless steel but does not guarantee that other elements in the steel will affect the accuracy of the results. There is through the magnetic and non-magnetic to determine, Generally magnetic is two series of stainless steel, non-magnetic is three series of stainless steel when these two methods can not be more accurate to determine whether it is 304 stainless steel.
Plumbing pipes can usually be manipulated so that they end up exactly where they are wanted. But waste pipes are less amenable often their slope and position are fairly fixed. So ensure that your proposed position for the new sink or basin enables the waste to be connected properly. You can gel 'kits' of waste fittings for sinks, basins and baths; a length of flexible waste pipe will often be useful as will lengths of hand-bendable copper pipe.
Both pedestal and wall-hung basins need to be securely fixed to the wall: fit battens on stud partition walls.
