Default Replacing 7" deep kitchen sink to 8"

Hello all,

I'll be replacing my existing kitchen sink when a much nicer one soon. The only problem is, the new one is 1" deeper.

(see attached photo) Is it a simple matter of shortening the vertical pipe that extends from each sink strainer by an inch? Or is there another way this should be taken care of?

Thanks in advance for any help.

Just use shorter strainers and you won't have to touch the drainage at all as long as your spacing is the same

Oh. That seems a lot simpler! I didn't know you could get different size ones. Too bad the sink comes with strainers then ... unless they're the correct length.

Are you referring to the actually strainer itself, the metal part or the pipe that attaches under it?

When you install new sink, lift dishwasher drain so it won't be backing up.
