Kitchen sink


Hi,

This might seem like a silly question but im taking out an old kitchen and sink to prepare for decorating and fitting a new sink and kitchen. Once i turn the water off to take out the sink and taps how do i leave it for turning the water back on so i can use the bathroom?

Thanks in advance for your help

Jonny

Are there no shut offs under the sink?

Is this a wall mount faucet?

Hi Ron,

There are no shutoffs under the sink no. Im in Moscow by the way so it could be normal here. the only shutoff there is, is in the airing cupboard type thing which feeds the bathroom taps and the kitchen sink taps. The sink is fitted in the kistchen cupboards. The pipework comes through the wall and up to the tap so i dont think i can suspend the taps back on the end when the sink and units come out.

Thanks for helping me.

Jonny

Can you remove the faucet and put caps on the ends where the faucet connects to?

I don't know what type of material is used over there, but you would think there is caps for what ever you have, you could after taking off the faucet, take to the parts house and see what they have to cap the pipe with.
