Required Materials for this Project

Avoid last-minute shopping trips by having all your materials ready ahead of time. Here's a list.

    • Plumber's putty
    • Tub-and-tile caulk
    • Two basket strainer assemblies (only one if you're installing a disposer)
    • 1-1/2-in. plastic drain parts
    • One P-trap assembly
    • One "end" or "center" outlet waste kit
    • Two sink tailpieces—only one if you're installing a disposer. If you have a dishwasher and no disposer, get a special "dishwasher" tailpiece that has a tube to connect the dishwasher drain hose.
    • One "disposer" waste arm if you have a disposer.
    • Two flexible water supply tubes for kitchen sinks. Match the nuts on the ends to the threads on your faucet and shutoff valves. Also measure to determine the right lengths.
