Need sink in shower
« on: July 13, 2020, 01:27:49 PM »
Hi folks. We want to install a small sink in the shower but I canít find any of the past threads about doing that either in this forum or in the archives. And I donít see any on Amazon. Can anyone post a link for the little sink that is part of the shower faucet assembly? It was all built in one piece together (the shower faucet controls and the sink). Thanks so much!

I went back into the old forum archives to get the brands of my install. Here are the 2 key elements of the shower sink I installed. The first is a replacement for the original shower-only faucet. This one has a sink faucet and diverter for the shower. The second is the sink. Itís just the right size to fit on the wall under the faucet. It comes with a metal bar that screws to wall studs and then the sink hangs on that. The sink is removable from the bar if need be. Below the sink, I run the sink drain into a small bucket so that when using the sink the shower pan doesnít get all wet. The faucet is easy to replace with the usual #2 square screwdriver and silicone caulk. The water pipes fasten with almost hand-tight connectors. Once you have the original faucet off, itís easy to look inside the wall to find the aluminum framing to screw the sink hanger too. The final idea for this is that in the sink hole originally meant for the little faucet that comes with the sink, I put in a soap dispenser. If anyone wants a photo, Iíll get Paul to post some for me.

Can't beat this forum for add-a-sink-to-the-shower ideas. My version is posted here. https://aluminumcamperforum.com/index.php?topic=786.0 

There were a number of responses from which I got even more ideas leading to the final product pictured here. https://aluminumcamperforum.com/index.php?topic=786.msg6731#msg6731

Best wishes on your finding your components. I noticed my LSW was noticeably more relaxed after we were no longer washing our potty hands in the kitchen sink! GK

I made this collapsible sink using 3/8" sheet PVC, hinges, a plastic bin, and plastic plumbing items from the hardware store.

The first picture is "shower mode". 

The second and third picture are "sink mode":

The fourth picture shows the bin and the tube that directs the water to the drain.  When I'm showering, I put these on top of the toilet.

I also had to buy an extra holder for the shower head, so that it would be held in place above the sink.
