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.
Before fixing the new unit into place, do as much plumbing work to it as possible, first, fix the waste outlet. Ceramic wash basins usually have an overflow build in, and a slotted waste outlet has to be used. To seal this to the basin surface, bed it in using plumbing mastic. Position the waste outlet so that the slot in it coincides with the slot from the overflow in the basin and hold in it place with the washers and back-nut supplied. Do not overtighten or the basin may crack. Remove any excess mastic.
Stainless-steel sinks have a hole for an overflow, but the overflow pipe comes with the waste outlet. The plastic washers supplied with the sink waste outlets are usually sufficient to seal the outlet and the overflow inlet to the sink surface.
