Word, and welcome to this Plumberparts.co.uk video. This is the last video of this particular set of episodes, all about how to instal a washbasin. If you wanna know anything about previous things, go back through the videos and you’ll see them there. This particular bit is about installing the waste. It’s the last part, so let’s get all that done and hopefully have it running by the end of the video.
Right, so here’s our outlet waste here. We’ve got a popping waste that we did earlier, we’ve got all our pipes in that we did earlier, our two valves, and here’s the waste outlet here. Let’s first have a look at the sealing components of the trap, this is known as a P-trap.
So the sealing part here, you got a rubber ring, and that seals on the bottom of this metal thread here, but also sits round the collar in there. Generally, you are to take this off, but I’m only doing it for demonstration purposes.
So that will sit up on there like that, and seal really well on there. On this end, we’ve got the compression fitting end. And how this works is you have a slip collar, we are tightening up this nut. If this slip collar wasn’t here, it would drag on this rubber bit here, which is the bit that causes the seal.
So the slip collar goes in there, rubber flat seal goes in there, your pipe will go in and around that inner circle, around there like that. The seal sits round in there like that, and that’s where it causes the seal. Our slip collar goes on there, nut goes on there, and that tightens up and causes a great seal. For all the other fittings, I’m actually gonna use glue fittings today, Solvent Weld ones, all right? If you wanna learn how to use those, go back to our video page, and we’ve got a video up there for you on how to use Solvent Weld fittings for waste.
So the first bit we’re gonna do here anyway is attach this P-trap, and then we’ve got a rough idea of the bits of pipe we need to cut, and where to put our elbows and stuff to match these two up together. So, let’s pop that up on there, so let’s get that in there like that. Right, so, what we’re gonna need here to get this bit done is two elbows. So, we’ll have one elbow popped on there like that, and we’ll need another one put in here about there.
So what I need to do now is cut my pipes the length, glue them in, get them so they’re popping into this compression fitting here, tighten that up, wait five minutes for the Solvent Weld to go off, and then hopefully, I can turn these two valves on and test for leaks. Right, are you ready, are you set? We’re gonna turn it on and see if it works. No leaks so far. Oh yeah! Turn it all the way round. Try some hot. Cold. Yeah! Pull this old boy. Is it up or down? Is it down? Oh yeah, there we go! No leaks down here, nothing at all.
We shut the plug and now we test this overflow. Getting so it’s over, of that overflow, and that will mean we’re testing our plumber’s vent that we did a few videos ago. It’s running there now. That’s feeding it nicely. That’s great. Well, as you can see, all is well. So there you go, it’s all done. The basin, hot works fine, all the way straightaway well, switch over to the two, nice little mix of tap. Our pop-up waste works well, and the back bit, that’s all done.
