:I had 2 of those style sinks, which I replaced a few years ago.
:I never even new they had an optional leg assembly. I saw one day them at a
:friend's parents house, which I went over to replace a old broken trap. I
:was kind of surprised, and I checked my sinks (before I had replaced them),
:and low and behold, they also had holes for these types of legs...
:I checked the local larger renovation store (similar to HD), and they had
:the same sink on display, and they had it with the legs also.
:When I asked the guy, he told me that the legs were an optional addon, and
:were only needed if you could not get enough support from the bracket in the
:wall.. ie: if you had to place the rear support bracket somewhere where you
:would not be able to bolt into a really solid frame. They would add
:addtional support. Also he told me that many of the senior customers would
:opt for them, since they frequently use the front of the sink to support
:themselves, and sometimes it is too much stress for just the rear bracket.
:Under normal everyday use, you should not really need the additional leg
:supports. I know for the 3 years I had them in my house (and the 20 years
:the previous owner had them) , we did not need them.
:Hope this helps.
Yes, that helps, and thanks to Speedy Jim for the link. I guess I'll see
how it goes when I get the other sink off, if the support for the
brackets is tough enough. I don't know if the brackets for the present
sink will work with the replacement. Maybe with an adjustment or maybe
they will fit as is, it's hard to tell not having taken the first sink
Thanks for the ideas.
