NO, the faucet goes thru the counter top only. The sink is held on at four corners underneath by wing nuts and "L" brackets. Even harder to reach and remove than the faucet. Although removing the sink would give access to make the removing the faucet easier. Removing the sink would just make more work to gain access to make it marginally easier to remove faucet.

It was really easy to in stall a SELF PRIMING ELECTRIC pump at the outlet of the tank.
Working for three seasons now.

My 91Scamp13's faucets (manual pump and city water) are mounted to the cabinet (not the sink) also.

There may be some crud in the bottom of the chamber causing the ball valve to seat improperly.

I once sprayed silicon in a manual pump and that was a mistake for that pump's components because the silicon caused them to bind...
