Pedestal sink
Hey Everyone......question for you all...

So i'm putting in a half bath in the basement, concrete floor, just putting down vinyl flooring, but the floors not perfectly level close to the wall, so the pedestals a bit off kilter.....anyhow...whats the best way to level the pedestal?

Self leveling cement across the floor, to make the bath even. Let me guess, there is a floor drain nearby, and when this basement was turned into a finished area, no one thought to level the concrete in especially the bath area.

No, the floor slopes up just a hair at the walls, and thus, causes my unlevel floor problem.

It can also be ground down to make it level.

I wonder if you could grind the pedestal base to match the slope?

You can shim the base of the sink and then caulk around itů

Use these :

Install them, and then cut them off. Caulking will cover them.
