Does anyone have an idea about fixing the pedestal of a pedestal sink? Mine was rather loose and fell. Does this mean it was installed improperly? I'm a renter and believe that this sink is my manager's responsibility to fix, they say it's my fault. Are replacement pedestals even sold, or does the whole sink have to be replaced? I've never heard of a pedestal falling over before, so any help would be much appreciated!!! thanks..

Properly installed quality plumbing fixtures don't fall over.To avoid a problem with the landlord you can probably replace it relatively cheap.Request that it be installed properly this time.

Thanks, that is what I thought also, but I wanted to get "expert" opinions... Right now the sink is just sitting on the floor, but supposedly being repaired this week, with a cabinet... if THAT falls over I'm moving!

I looked into this a little further and was going to tell you that the new pedestal probably wouldn't fit because the original didn't either.A vanity is a better choice on the landlords part!

Thanks so much for your input!!!
I found out the other day that the vanity solution is what they plan to do (allegedly...the sink is sitting in a mess on the floor at the moment...with a rag in the pipe so sewer gas doesn't leak out, nice, huh?)
I'm guessing that they shoved that pedestal in there from another unit in the building or something, just to avoid having to replace the sink before this.
Thanks again for your help!
