Removing a flush-mount sink

Of course, there's always the possibility the sink was installed improperly. The tabs may not have been bent or the corner clips were not installed. A heavy, flush-mounted cast iron sink may break loose because of old rusted or corroded clips. If you're removing a heavy cast iron sink, follow these safety procedures to prevent the sink from falling on you as you remove the rim clips:
Place a 2x4 across the top of the sink that's long enough to rest on the countertop on both sides of the sink.
Place a couple of short pieces of lx2s or 2x2s that are long enough to span the drain holes under the sink.
Use a short piece of rope or wire to tie the long 2x4 to the short boards under the sink.

Fixing a Leaky Sink Ceramic disk-type faucet

A ceramic disk-type faucet is reliable and usually doesn't require much maintenance. Faucets can be a bit tricky to take apart, however. Older faucet models are held together by screws underneath the faucet, so if you can't figure out how to get the faucet handle off, look under the counter and you should see a couple of brass screws. Loosen these and the whole cover and handle will come off the faucet, revealing the valve cartridge.
1. Remove the faucet handle.
Lift the faucet handle to its highest position to expose the set screw holding it in place. Use an Allen wrench or screwdriver to turn the set screw in a counterclockwise direction, and then lift off the faucet handle. With the handle off, pull the faucet decorative trim cap up and off the cartridge body.
2. Remove the faucet valve seals and cartridge assembly.
Loosen the two screws on the top of the valve cartridge and lift the faucet assembly off the faucet body.
3. Replace the faucet rubber seals.
You can find several rubber seals under the cartridge — replacing them stops most faucet leaking. If you replace these seals and the faucet still leaks, the faucet valve cartridge, which contains the ceramic disks, is worn and must be replaced.
4. Take the faucet cartridge assembly to your local hardware store or home center and purchase a replacement kit.
5. Install the new faucet cartridge according to the instructions in the kit.
The kit will contain new o-rings to seal around the faucet body. Be sure to replace these even if the old ones look like they're in good shape.
