Just Starting Out

How to replace bathroom sink drain?

 How can I remove this sink drain as I don’t want to buy whole new cabinet. Hope someone can advise.


Kind of a Big Deal

Re: bathroom sink drain

Hi @cazbaa 



What I learnt  from @EricL   is that  centre screw needs to be un done a long way to separate the top and bottom parts of that drain  plug sandwiching the sink in between.


Hope I learnt  right. never to old to learn new tricks.

Re: bathroom sink drain

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @cazbaa. It's sensational to have you join us, and many thanks for your question about removing a sink waste.

As @Jewelleryrescue mentioned, on this style of waste, the central screw locks it together. Under the sink, there will also be a couple of nuts that link the pipework to the waste. Make sure to check on your local regulations, as this could be considered plumbing work, requiring a licensed plumber to complete it.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
