  4. Plastic pipes are made with a stock, they need to be cut to size, with no experience in such works - do so only special pipe cutter.Even minimal distortion - will cause a leak interface.
  5. Before installing the rubber gasket is treated with silicone sealant.The latter is self-explanatory.Silicone rubber gasket and individually will last for 3-5 years, and if they are fitted together, they are unusually long.The reason for the difference in thermal expansion of these materials.

If properly install the sink in view of these points, the connection reliability is guaranteed.
