SOURCE: Insulation falling off bottom of sink

This insulation is important as a sound reducer so I would definitely glue it back into place. Go to any home depot, lowes, or other hardware store and get construction adhesive, the tacky kind will work best for your purpose. Then just put a thin coat directly on the bottom of the sink and stick your rubber back in place.

2002 saturn sl exhaust system its located under the manifold but above the cadilitic converter... It looks like a stainless steel mesh and flexible, its 2inch pipe by 8 inches long


guessing you are referring to the flex section of the exhaust pipe that allows engine movement separate to moving the exhaust system
it is a stainless steel convoluted section enclosed insulation by the mesh and are subject to failure from work hardening of the stainless steel section from improperly maintained exhaust system mounting rubbers ( broken)
can be replaced by any accredited exhaust repair shop

You need to call the manufacturer or one of the distributors of your product. We do not have local information so we can't be of much help except what I said above..

Hi, I am installing a stainless steel sink I have had made into a bench top which I will be filling with ice to keep beers cold. As there is a cupboard underneath I am worried that the ice will cause...


I would take a two-step approach.

1) Get one or two cans of polyurethane foam insulation (e.g. Great stuff). It would be easiest if the sink is not yet installed. If it is, get a bunch of newspapers and keep the area well covered inside your cupboard. This stuff will stick to anything (including stainless steel sink bottoms).

Spray the foam insulation onto the sink surface. It has a wand to spray into small areas, just make lines about 2 inches apart as you spray (more like caulking). You will seet the foam expand. Run another line of foam between the ones you made if you think it is not covering (expanding) well enough. Let it expand and harden for a day.

Part 2)
Here you want to prevent any air from getting under your sink. If you can limit any condensation to the air that is under the sink, you wont get too much water. If you allow air to circulate, then all the air passing by will deposit some dew onto your sink bottom.

Get some foam insulation strips like you want to insulate a window or door. The best option would be Frost King (EDPM) extruded profiles. Thes strips come in 3/16" and compress easily as your cabinet door closes. You might want to put spring hinges on the doors or a spring latch to keep it tightly closed.

Good luck and try to stay clean. You might want to practice on a board outside if you haven't worked with spray foam insulation before - be careful, it drips and runs a bit before it hardens so keep your lines thin as you spray..

The rubber washer on the stainless steel plug has perished and therefore will not hold water in sink when needed.


Unless its really old, you should be able to find a replacement stopper at HD or local plumbing supply.

Two rubber gaskets and a fiber gasket came with new strainer. do i use all the gaskets? what about plumbers putty


You are attaching sink strainer to sink opening.
1) Use plumber's putty. Finger-size roll of plumbers putty is applied around opening from top, or applied to the bottom of strainer basket. (Some sinks require silicone. Do not use silicone unless required by the sink manufacturer.)
2) Sink strainer is pushed into the sink opening, making sure it is centered and level.
3) From below, the rubber gasket is applied first, and then the paper gasket is second, and then the basket locknut.
4) Tighten locknut very firmly.
5) Wipe away excess putty on bottom.
6) Push down stainer from top again, and tighten nut some more.
7) Wipe away excess putty around bottom and top.

8) The cardboard washer lets the locknut rotate easily.

How to remove scratches from stainless steel appliances


Try this at your own risk. Step 1 Consider using a product made for stainless steel2_bing.gif such as Scratch-B-Gone or Bar Keepers Friend (see Tips).
  • Step 2 Or, try spraying an all-purpose cleaner (such as Formula 4092_bing.gif) on the scratches.
  • Step 3 Use a non-metal scouring pad (such as Scotch-Brite pads) to rub the cleaner in, always rubbing in the direction of the grain.
  • Step 4 Keep the stainless steel wet with the cleaner as you work, and rinse the pad often.
  • Step 5 Rinse the surface and wipe dry.
  • jQuery('.article ol .image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); });
    Tips & Warnings
    • Before using any treatment on your stainless cookware, sink or appliances, it is wise to call the manufacturer for advice.
    • A new product called Scratch-B-Gone is touted as the "first aid kit for stainless steel." You can find it at many home improvement stores.
    • Bar Keepers Friend is another product for stainless steel. It can be found in most grocery or home improvement stores, or at www.barkeepersfriend.com.
    • To keep stainless steel sinks from scratching, put a rubber mat in the bottom of the sink to protect it.
    • Avoid using abrasive
