SOURCE: Basket Strainer Specs Question

1\ Amount of free open area is the ratio of the open area through the strainer basket to the cross sectional area of the pipe. A good basket strainer should have a ratio of 4 to 1. 2\ Ease of basket removal is important because baskets may require frequent cleaning or replacing due to buildup. 3\ Compactness of the design saves you valuable space. A small strainer is less bulky and easier to handle. 4\ Availability of basket perforation sizes gives the strainers the flexibility to cope with a wide range of particle sizes.

SOURCE: How to Clean Pump Strainer basket

Turn the swimming pool pump off and wait for the water to drain from the strainer basket. You want to make sure that the pump is completely off before you proceed. Remove the screws or any items securing the lid of the strainer basket. Open the lid and pull out the strainer basket. Vacuum the strainer basket or scoop out any debris. You may want to run clear water through the basket to ensure you removed all debris. Feel toward the impeller and remove any clogs or obstructions preventing the impeller from working properly. Check the o-ring under the cover of the pump strainer housing. You may need to use a silicon lubricant to ensure a water-tight seal. Put the strainer basket back into the pump strainer housing and pour some water into the basket. Replace the lid and secure it in place. Turn the swimming pool pump on and check for proper pressure. If your pressure doesn't register, you may need to troubleshoot to find the problem.

SOURCE: Gap between basket & body of basket strainer

can you clarify that, i am not sure what part of a basket strainer dimension you are refering to. the dimensions of a basket strainer are related to the standards of the fixtures they are installed on. It has to be designed to work on different thickness of materials; thick materials such as cast iron or marble and thin materials like stainless steal and pressed steal. I have experiensed some strainers that do not meet this and are not deep enough to fit thick materials o r do not tighten enough to handle then materials.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: How do I know which Garvin Basket Strainer to

I would suggest you replace the entire basket strainer. I can honestly say that in 30 years I have never seen two that were alike.

Leak at new strainer waste fitting


Did you put the rubber gasket and cardboard sleeve on the bottom of the sink(next to the nut and did you use plumbers putty on the top part of the sink under the top section of the basket. Hint if you put some soap on the gasket under the sink between it and the nut it will be easier to tighten also you must secure the top part of the basket as you turn the nut if not the plumbers putty will not seal. If you do not have the strainer basket holding tool wrench you can substitute with a pare of needle nose pliers. Large channel locks or pliers can work to turn the large nut on bottom. If you can recruit a helper to hold the top part of the strainer basket with the needle nose pliers it make the job of tightening the large nut easier. When a large amount of the plumbers putty has squeezed out and the strainer is flush with the sink you should have a tight seal.

The stopper on the waste strainer has disappeared and a replacement strainer is not readily available in UK. Is there a way of repairing the existing strainer as I cannot recall what the mechanism was...


Get a "FIT ALL" basket for now just to make it so you can use the sink, and most people will never see it . Order a new strainer that fits, They might send you just the one complete system

The thing that happend is your hoping to get everything done.. Dont let that upset you .
It will take a week or two. But you have a working sink and let Blanco worry. They will do what ever they need to.

I hope this works out for you Be safe and be happy,

Thanks for using our service

I am installing a Blanco cafe brown sink basket strainer. The directions state that a thin bead of silicone, not plumber putty, goes at the bottom of the sink hole. Is this accurate?


Yes The Blanko is installed with silicon not plumber putty. This is common with the newer sink strainers

I purchased a Blanco waste strainer #441099. It is brown plastic for a granite kitchen sink. My plumber could not use it. said it didn't have a ring that holds the disposal flange. There is a groove...


This strainer is not for a garbage disposal. The strainer for the garbage disposal comes with the disposal. If you bought two of these for the sink, then that's why you have one left. The disposal has its own.

What is the difference between standard strainer and strainer for food erator? I bought a replacement sink wiht standard strainer, which does not seems to fit garbage disposal


If you need new sink strainer basket for disposal side of sink, you have to buy new disposal.

Each garbage disposal comes with its own strainer basket so that disposal can connect and seal.

First, the disposal strainer basket is installed, and then disposal lifts up and attaches from below.
A rubber gasket comes with new disposal.
Rubber gasket fits between disposal and strainer basket so that disposal seals correctly.

Photo below shows how disposal connects to strainer basket using steel connector ring under the sink.

Both of the Pegasus baskets in my sink have come apart. I put them back together and they come apart again. I would like to purchase new baskets, but can only find the entire drain assembly, which I do...


I know what you mean I had similar problems with my sink strainers, unfortunately is you want to get a good working basket you have to buy the whole drain assembly. You can get some cheap ones at a home store but they will only break again and probably won't match up. What I recommend is swapping out your drains with a drain brand that won't break again like Kohler, Moen, or Elkay. All you need to install a new drain is the new drains, a drain nut removal tool and some plumbers putty. Take the old drain out clean around the whole and install the new one with a ring of plumbers putty around the hole.

I am on my 3rd Pegasus sink strainer (bail-lock basket)in 2 years. The pull handles come off. Is there any way to stop this from happening? Is there any way to contact the manufacturer directly?


Pegasis is a cheap brand of strainer.

I would get a better quality strainer...
ProFlo, moen, franke, Blanco, and even kohler

you might pay a few dollars more, but they will last much longer
