What is the proper way to install a BLANCO sink strainer Kitchen Sink COD.100113 I believe is the code # Thank you

Hello, W/D here.

To install your strainer, you'll need some plumber's putty. The old one is removed by loosening the large ring on the underside and the strainer pulls out from the sink side. Once you are down to just the hole in the sink, you're ready to install the new strainer.
Get a portion of the plumber's putty in your hand about the size of a golf ball. divide it into two portions. Take one part, and roll it in between your hands, palms together and vertical, making a rope.
Take your rope, and place it around the sink hole. If you need more putty, roll the other portion in a similar fashion, and continue around the hole. You may need to overlap the rope putty where it's thin and at the ends to make sure that you get a good seal when you apply pressure the the basket. Place the strainer basket in the hole and press it down lightly, just enough to hold it in place. From under the sink, place the gaskets on the threads, followed by yjr large ring nut that will hold it all in place. Usually, there are two gaskets, a paper type, and a plastic type. Put the paper one on first, followed by the plastic, then the nut. Screw the nut down, applying some pressure to the strainer and plumber's putty. Adjust the strainer now, centering it in the depression in the bottom of the sink. Continue tightening the ring nut, pulling the strainer down into the sink, and squeezing the plumber's putty out, making a seal. Get it pretty snug, and wait a minute. The putty will continue to settle in the seal, and you will be able to tighten it some more after it does. Do this several times, and you'll end up with a good seal that will last. Take a regular screwdriver, and trace it around the strainer on the sink side to release the excess putty. You can ball it up, and press it back into the tub of putty, ready for the next time.

Best regards, --W/D--

Where do you find replacement rubber feet for sink baskets.

I contacted the manufacturer. They had the feet at $4.70 per package of four feet. I ordered two packages. I received what they sent today. The shipment included ONE package of feet, A BILL for $4.70, TAX of $.61 and Postage and Handling at $3.99 for a total of $9.30 for four feet. When I checked online the see if there were any other sources, I entered the item number, 84544-0. and found PLUMBERSURPLUS.COM. They had the same feet at $3.22 per package of four; NO tax and FREE shipping. I ordered two packages for a total cost of $6.44.

So my Solution is to bypass Kohler,, which is a bit on the greedy side, and buy these feet directly from PLUMBER SURPLUS or whatever online site offers the best deal. I would continue to use Kohler to get part numbers as needed but, unless you're into philanthropy for large corporations, do not buy from Kohler. Best of luck.

HI, I have an older American Standard kitchen sink. I am trying to remove the basket strainer, but it is not coming out, because it has no backing nut. I now have all the parts off that will come off,...

The opening below the strainer (the drain connection) has to have a backing nut, or it would have never sealed. Look again under the sink. It'll be a large diameter nut. You should be able to feel the threads. If possible, I prefer to remove the sink from the opening and work on it in the open, with the sink upside down. If you can locate the nut, get someone to keep it from spinning in the hole while you turn the nut. The easiest way to move these things without the proper wrench is to put penetrating oil on it, and drive it loose with a hammer and chisel. Best regards, --W/D--

I have many scratches on my kohler stainless do I remove them?

You would use rubbing compound -- same kind of stuff as used on autos -- there are different grits -- super fine on up, just like sandpaper. It'll tak a lot of rubbing. Probably good do a reasonable job with a buffer/etc. on a drill motor.

Peeling paint coming off of oil rubbed bronze basket strainer

Bronze is more expensive than standard mass production is worth, i supposed if you want them made out of any mat. you can call kohler and pay for it, i've been to their plant and they do some pretty awsome custom work.
Rubbed oil is just a color and somtimes "you get what you pay for" if you buy a cheap basket strainer they usually do exactly what you're saying.
You can buy more expensive strainers that have a better finish, I know Kohler and Moen have lifetime warranty finish on many of their higher end products.

If you don't have the owners manual to refer to for the grade of oil and it is not marked on the dipstick, I would suggest a straight 30 weight oil would be your safest option. Anything thicker or thinner could damage the motor.
