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.

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.

SOURCE: Moen basket strainers for Corian

I'm not sure what your question is, or if you are posting information.

Plumber's putty is purchased at local home center, hardware, plumbing outlet.
Container is smaller than coffee cup, and 3 times heavier.

Material is gray and thick and slightly oily and not sticky on the fingers.
Clean sink opening.
Apply fairly thick amount of putty completely around sink opening. About 3/16" thick.
Putty should extend wide enough so sink basket sits entirely on top of putty.

Push sink basket down into putty.
Tighten sink basket very firm from below.
Wipe away excess putty inside sink bowl with finger, and then a paper towel or damp sponge.

If you have a garbage disposal, use standard strainers, but depending what may go down if not, such as hair, fiberous material that will get stuck in grease, then use the basket strainers.

Slightly flatten the bead on the strainer pushing a little past the outer edge then press it firmly into sink and remove any excess from below sink before installing rubber ring and lock nut tighten firmly but do not over tighten adust drain to center in hole retighten slightly if necessary and remove any excess putty from around drain. Hope this helps.

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.

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.

Difference between black basket strainer 900 and regular strainer.also i want white. are there different sizes or universal.


Unless you have a special purpose sink all basket strainers are standard size. You should be able to use strainer from any manufacturer that has the color that you want. If you are doing this yourself make sure you use rubber gasket and fiber friction ring. These go on the underside of sink in between sink bottom and retaing nut. I would recommend you use a small amount of pure silicone caulking in between flange of strainer and sink surface. Be ready to wipe off excess caulking as soon as you get retaing nut snug as it starts to cure in about ten mins. I use paper towels and wipe till its clean. Hope this helps. Thanks

I need a new franke sink basket strainer for my franke sink model PRX11021 - stainless steel. What is the model number that will fit this sink and can I order it online or go to a local store?


You should purchase a complete basket strainer assembly. Home Depot or Lowes have some very nice ones. They are a standard size.
Tell them it's for your kitchen sink.
