Water stains on my new granite countertops!

I had Sensa granite countertops installed in my kitchen. The color isĀ Blanco Leblon, which is primarily white. Supposedly it was sealed with a 15 year guarantee, but I noticed dark areas all around the sink area which must be the result of excess water seeping into the granite. I have already emailed Sensa about this, as this is already a repair job at half-price by Lowe's (they botched the first intsall of tile countertops). I have read about the flour, dawn, and water paste under plastic wrap overnight to absorb it... I am pretty ********** given the 15 year guarantee, and they aren't even 15 days old. What do I need to do? Seal it again repeatedly? What brand and type of sealer? Anyone have any advise regarding Sensa or my problem? Thank you. Cliff

I have the same problem. The final soultion as per Sanyo tech support and Sirius tech support is that radio is dead and there is nothing you can do. It has to be sent in for repair. You can call Sirius and they can direct you on how to best handle the servicing. The gottcha - as always - is the radio only has a 1 year warranty, so it costs more to repair it then to buy a new radio. Hopefully you are still covered by the warranty. This radio is a real PoS btw. If your lucky, you are still covered by the warranty.

SOURCE: new granite countertops big circle spots on.

They suggested a dryer because they thought the stone had absorbed a liquid and was causing the stone to darken. This is common on unsealed granite. If you put a sealer on the counter tops however, whatever it is you see there will remain under the seal. I would ask the installer to come out and take a look at it. If they are unwilling, the Home Depot has a cleaning kit sold in the kitchen counters area of the store made by a company you can call and they will ask questions about the problem and provide advice on how to fix it. They are extremely helpful with free suggestions as well as stuff you may be able to purchase to fix the problems. In any case, granite is sensitive stuff and while it is physically durable it seems to be extremely sensitive to stain and etching and learning about proper care, cleaning, and dos and dont's will save a lot of heart ache and time for you down the road. (For instance oil absorbing into the stone is a several day ordeal to fix). Good luck with getting the results you want. If you did find a specific solution please share it here.

SOURCE: Blanco Supreme 533-U sink drain leaking at seal

The sink basket/strainer that fits into the large hole of the sink should have either a bead of silicone sealant applied to the sealing lip of the assembly or a ring of plumbers putty. Silicone will work very well if the mating flanges are clean and dry.

With the baket in place, the rubber seal goes between the large nut and the sink. A bead of silicon on this is optional on the sink side of that rubber seal. and the nut tightened down snug , forcing some of the silicone out fro beneath the mating flange and rubber seal. Tight enough so the basket is not free to move. Be it plastic or brass/metal, that order is the same, only a plastic nut is not tightened as tightly as a metal nut would be.

On the bottom of the drain basket assembly there is a nut, to retain a plastic or brass tail piece. The plastic tail piece will have a polyetheylene "flanged washer" for a seal to the bottom of the sink basket. If it is a brass tailpiece, a rubber seal and metal nut is used with "pipe dope"/thread sealing compound used on the threads of the metal nut. With the plastic nut, you can apply a few wraps of teflon tape to the threads of the drain basket, but is not required in most cases as the poly flanged washer will form the seal. The plastic nuts should not be tightened any more than hand tight.

beneath that, the rest of the drain assembly attaches. If plastic- no more than hand tight. if metal, only about 1/4 turn past hand tight. Metal nuts and parts should use rubber gaskets/seals and the plastic parts should only use the poly tapered/lip seals.

Which one has more heat resistant: Granite or Silestone? Explain?


Planning to refurbish your kitchen, Now-a-days, a wide range of choices for kitchen countertops are available in the market, which make you to choose the perfect one. In case if you are looking to select granite or Silestone for your kitchen worktops. Then, as per my knowledge both are popular choices, but he Granite is a very durable natural stone with a high aesthetic value. It is heat and scratch resistant but also porous and therefore possible to stain; it needs periodic maintenance. Where as the quartz used in countertops and flooring is a man-made combination of resins and crushed quartz. The resulting surface is non-porous, meaning it is more stain resistant than granite and requires less maintenance overall.

Granite countertop


Granite needs to be color matched epoxied together at the seams. If they are sitting level and flush (and Solid) a home owner solution is to use matching silicone filling the seem then cleaning off with a good solvent. tape the top on both sides before starting. The second solution works to keep out food, but may not look great if they are not flush or have not been cut cleanly and the gap is not too wide. You will need suction cup turn buckles to pull them tight. Do not do any of the above if you are not comfortable with your skill level or feel it may damage your top. Granite can be stained using the wrong products.

When installing do you silicone each piece for example the faucet , the soap dispenser ,the sprayer , and the tap


Hi seawitch678,

If you have a granite or stone countertop/sink, use silicone as plumber's putty will stain the stone. Plumber's putty is petroleum based so it will not adhere to stone. Normally you should use what the manufacturer recommends and where they recommend. When installing a faucet, put either around the base of any piece that goes through the countertop.

Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate your vote. Thanks,

I have Granit kitchen worktops how do i get wine stains and every day stains off Many thanks


There is a cleaning kit sold by Home Depot in the kitchen counter top area of the store in black bottles for about $25 or so. The company that makes these are experts in cleaning stone. I would recommend calling them. After you get the stains out you will want to seal the counters using their seal or something else that is recommended by the manufacturer of your counters. The process to seal is simple and should be done every time you notice water absorbing into the stone (or ideally before that starts to happen). Good luck and your posting of the specific advice received from Stone Solutions and what you did and the result would be greatly appreciated.
