Bathroom Vanity Changout-What Tools Are Needed?


I'm going to be changing out the vanity in my basement bathroom. I'll also be replacing the sink and fixture. I've been expanding my tool collection as the job calls for it. What will I need for this job?

The tool list may vary depending on the age of your current vanity system because older systems tend to use bolts or bar clamps that may have rusted making things a bit challenging. Some newer installations are almost tool-less and hand tightened connections.

I can list some items and maybe others can chime in
  • basin wrench
  • adjustable wrench
  • scraper
  • small bucket
  • strap/spud/internal wrench
  • plumbers putty
  • new water supply lines or stainless flex
  • teflon tape
  • joint compound

just an addon fyi, i found a basin wrench 'head' that attaches to a 3/8" extension for a socket wrench. cheaper than the whole tool and works fine.
