Glass vessel sink install


I'm about to install a glass vessel sink for the 1st time and am having difficulty understanding the manufacturers instruction. Specifically regarding the chrome riser (spacer) and the cup shaped washer installation. The rubber o-ring is set into the riser and there is a recess on the other side of the riser. I don't know which side of the riser is against the base of the sink although my guess is the side with the o-ring since I don't think metal on glass would be a good idea. I don't know where the cup-shaped washer goes in relation to the riser. The manufacturers instructions are not clear, at least not to me. Some pics attached which may or may not be easy to interpret. Also a link to the Manufacturers instructions. Any help would be appreciated as I'm losing my mind on this one.

Lay out everything on the table and take a picture--drain set--all parts---and we will help.

Also need to know what the counter is made of and how thick.

Page 2 seems pretty clear to me. You dont have metal on Glass. There is a rubber or polymer gasket on both sides of the glass. This type of sink would have lasted about two days when my kids were little.

I think I've figured the installation but another problem is that the threads on the drain body are too short when the mounting ring is used. Counter is approx 1 1/8 inches which leaves no threads exposed. Do they make longer drain bodies with more threads or can I silicone the glass sink to the counter top?

Yes,they make longer drain bodies---Yours is an oddly short one---and yes the bowl can be set to the counter ,using a rubber ring---the silicone will look bad----

Be sure to get a pop-up drain assembly. With other types, your sink will drain very slowly.

Don't Silicone anything that you don't want to break to remove, like a sink. It is a very tenacious adhesive.
