How to install a wall insulation and wall mount sink in your basement

The idea of wall mounting a sink to a wall is something that is being explored by builders across the country, and I’ve been following this phenomenon closely over the past couple of years.

The Wall Mount Sink from Aventador uses a 3/4″ (13.8 mm) wall studs to mount a 2-liter water tank to the wall.

If you are a DIYer, you could probably just use a piece of plywood to hang the water tank, but I decided to go with this concept.

The tank itself is removable and easy to remove.

It’s just a little bit of PVC pipe that will serve as a wall mount and add some added insulation.

There are plenty of other DIY wall mounting options out there that also use PVC pipes. 

I have two of these on hand, and my basement has a wall that is currently at a temperature of 70 degrees, and a ceiling that is at an additional 10 degrees.

The walls in my house are currently only rated for 30 percent of their rated capacity, and so this idea makes sense to me. 

How it works This idea has been tested on a number of different basement walls in different homes and I believe it is working well in my case.

I am using a PVC pipe in my basement that is about 3 feet long and 6 inches wide.

I chose this length because I can fit my 2-litre tank of water under it without having to move the tank around.

The wall mounting solution allows the tank to be installed at the bottom of the basement without having the water pump or the drain to move around.

I installed the sink with a 5/16″ (16.6 mm) PVC pipe.

The sink itself is a bit more difficult to install because it’s not bolted down, but the process of drilling a hole for the hole is relatively simple.

The PVC pipe is held in place with screws. 

The PVC pipe I chose to mount the water heater is made of a 2.5-inch (6.4 mm) piece of pipe. 

This piece of PVC has been drilled with a 6-inch-long piece of stainless steel tubing, and is then coated with a coat of epoxy to ensure it will be rigid and watertight. 

A 2-inch section of PVC is then screwed into the PVC pipe, which is then secured to the PVC with a 3-inch piece of 5/32″ (9.6 cm) hex-head screws.

The holes in the PVC are drilled in the backside of the piece of steel tubing so that the pipe can be installed in a way that will not damage the stainless steel pipe.

When the tank is installed, I’m actually holding the pipe upside down, and it’s attached to the ceiling with a piece or two of 1/4-inch hex-heads.

The hex-headed screws then connect to the water hose, which has a 1/8-inch threaded nipple.

The nipple is then threaded into the threaded nipple of the hose and screwed onto the PVC to make a simple attachment. 

Once the tank has been mounted, the water valve is then tightened with a screw.

This allows me to keep the water pressure inside the tank at a steady 90 psi (120 bar).

The pump can then be disconnected from the wall socket and the water line can be connected to the power outlet. 

You can see the finished product in the video above.

You can find this project on Aventadors website for $60.

You can get the project on Insta-Repair, but if you have a budget, you can save a little money and get it done by a DIY person. Posted by Chris at 12:34 AM
