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: Use foam gasket on sink strainer along with plumber's putty?

Usually the gasket is not foam but black rubber. There may have been a piece of foam as packing to protect the stainless. You would apply the plumber's putty directly to the sink. Insert the strainer directly into the putty, compressing the putty. Under the sink, remove the excess putty that extruded through the opening. Apply the rubber gasket to the bottom of the sink, and then the nut (sometimes a "cup" and then the nut) .When the nut is tight, remove excess putty inside the sink. LEAKPROOF!

SOURCE: I installed a black granite

This is all wrong! You can't use plumbers putty on a granite sink! You're supposed to use a sink and tub caulk which unfortunately is a real pain to get seal. Read the directions on a granite sink... they say DO NOT USE PLUMBERS PUTTY!

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

More than likely it's leaking from where the body meets the sink. U might need to pull it apart, clean it up, and re apply plumbers putty to the sink and re apply the body. If you are doing this I would recommend buying a new basket assembly from the hardwear store. Just makes more sence than re using the old one. That is enles it's new. Hope this helps

I installed a black granite sink, but the BASKET STRAINER is leaking. Do I need to buy a specific Basket Strainer for the Granite sink and take model # of the sink.Or can i just buy any basket...


Hello.
You shouldn't need a special strainer.
Where the strainer meets the sink surface, ( the lip of the strainer ), should have plumber's putty.
Take a chunk of plumbers putty and roll it out like a snake and then stick it under the lip of the srainer all the way around. Set the strainer in the hole and then on the bottom side add the rubber seal, then the cardboard, or metal glide ring and then the nut.
As you tighten the nut it will squeeze out the excess putty and allow you to remove it.
1. Sometimes people try to use the rubber seal on the top side of the sink, but it goes on under the sink.
2. The cardboard/metal glide ring prevents the nut from tearing up the rubber seal so you can really tighten it.

I hope this helps you!
Thanks, Donnie

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.

I wrote tips for installing a disposal from days when I worked apartment maintenance.

Rubber feet on stainless steel sink basket are falling apart


Kohler is generally good about standing behind their products. I would get a hold of customer support and they should help you with that.
