I'm going to buy American Standard's Retro Ped Bath Sink. Has anyone installed this sink? I'd like to know how it is installed to the wall. Is that a plate that goes on the wall (over the studs)? How hard is it to install? If hardware (plumbing) needs to be updated, would a plumber be able to do the whole job? Since the post is not holding the sink up, really, does it work fine on a ceramic tile floor? Photo attached. Thanks!

We don't have this exact one but do have a newer pedestal sink. The top rests on the post and fastens into the studs with bolts. Yours looks like it has more room underneath than ours (which tapers into a bowl) which should make installation a little easier.

Plumbers around here would install the whole thing.

Yes, you could install it on a tile floor.

I once was interested in installing something similar in my kitchen but gave up in the end because I had no idea how to do so to my wall and engaging a contractor would defeat the whole purpose of DIY.
