Home Shampoo Sink Hook Up Question


How y'all doin? Miss SheFreaka in seattle has a plumbing query:
I'm a hairdresser who would like to work from home. I need a nice shampoo chair and sink to best take care of my clients. I've attached a pic of the sink unit I'd like to use.
Can I rig up the plumbing for this unit to connect with my plumbing under the kitchen sink? Ideally, I'd like a quick release system that I can disable when it's not in use. Is this a feasible reality, or am I just dreaming? I'm open to suggestions and advice.

I'm aware of the other portable sinks out there, but they're either really cheap looking, or a huge square box with 5gal tanks for water underneath. And my clients can only let me dunk their heads under my kitchen faucet for so long. And my kitchen is too "skinny" to use a shampoo board and a chair at the kitchen sink.

Thanks!

Re: Home Shampoo Sink Hook Up Question


I would suggest you check into your state licensing requirements regarding the equipment you will need for a home based hairdresser.

And your local building and zoning board.

If your state/city says it's fine, then u can plan on locating the sink along the same wall where your kitchen sink is. That way, plumber can extend water supply lines and drain pipes behind the wall.

Re: Home Shampoo Sink Hook Up Question


Is this going to be a portable unit? I'm no code expert, but it's my understanding that portable equipment has much more lenient requirements than permanent fixtures. But you probably won't be able to connect it to your sink's drain. You may be able to do quick connects for cold water and hot water, then drain into a bucket or something. If it's a permanent fixture it will probably need to be installed just like any other sink.
