I already know that I will hire a plumber to perform this swap/install-- what I'm looking for is feasibility or hidden "gotchas" with the idea before I commit to buying the sink.
What I have is a standard (so I believe) 22x33 dual basin sink, as pictured below (above the sink and in the cabinet below.) Note that the dual basin sink, as one would expect, has two drains. One of them (left) is attached to a garbage disposal. Mostly unseen, to the right, is a dishwasher that gets hooked up to the thing.
What I want is a 22x33 single basin sink similar to (or perhaps exactly) the one pictured here.
Specific things I am concerned about:
- Going from dual drain to single drain, where the new drain location does not match either of the old ones
- Above, especially in the presence of the garbage disposal
- The hookup to the dishwasher
I'm not asking how to do any of those things, per se, only whether a competent, licensed plumber will be able to get things installed and working together correctly.
- Am I putting the horse before the cart? Meaning, my plan is to buy sink then contract plumber. Should I be doing that in the other order, contracting the plumber and vetting the hardware prior to purchase?
Assume, if it was not already obvious, that I know nothing about plumbing.
PS - I hate that sink. It was here when I bought the house.
