Wall Sinks

Simple question: Is a behind-the-wall wood cross brace from stud to stud always required for pedestal and wall sink attachments, or is there any other alternative?

The only alternative to not using a wood support would be toggle bolts, and those do not hold at all since they use the back of drywall for the support. Most times they will snug in tight initially, then slowly loosen up from use of the sink. Do it right and install the support to prevent loose water line and drain connections to the sink over time.

Dunbar is right, do the right thing now, or do it over, sorry.
