Sink Support for Above Counter Install
There are two ways to properly support an Alchemy above-counter sink. The rst is to set the sink
upon a mounting ring or donut, rather than straight on a at countertop. You can purchase a
mounting donut from Alchemy. The second option is to cut, or preferably carve at an angle, a
hole in the countertop. The hole should be at least 8” in diameter for an 18” sink and 5” in diameter
for a 15” sink. The bottom of the sink will sit about 1” below the countertop, or deeper with a
larger diameter hole. Whichever option you choose, do not rest the bowl on a at surface. The
bottom really is round and contractors or plumbers are often tempted to tighten the drain until it
stops wobbling which is way too tight and will potentially cause the sink to crack.
Do not install an Alchemy sink with instant hot water systems such as closed-loop plumbing or
with an instant hot water heater plumbed directly to the sink. It is best to limit the water
temperature to 120°F. If the household has instant or recirculating hot water throughout, ask
your contract or plumber to install a thermal regulator at the Alchemy sink location. To prevent
thermal shock please see Glass Sink Care.
