install -center sink


I am attempting to install my double sink.
The directions were non existent except for a template on the side of the box.
Do I just center it on all sides? (as I was going to do.) Or is the front and back setback a different increment?

thanks

If you use the templet the place it about 1" from the back splash. This will give you about 1/2" of showing countertop from the edge of the sink and back splash. This will also give you about 1" to 1 1/2" chowing countertop from the front edge to the front edge of the sink.

I am assume you are using a self rim stainless sink

Hi thanks for the quick help.
Sorry for my ignorance but I can tell you it is not an undermount sink anything beyond that is beyond me.

Plumbing is not my forte'. I was hooking up my supply lines and the instructions said "hand tighten and 1/4 turn" however I can't hand tighten as well as say a plumber could. So it was a drawn out process tighten... leak observe... tighten leak. And a week later a few drops ...no idea where they are coming from everything appears dry .
