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!

Leaking at jet to tub connection


You can fix that with a small amount of "plumber's putty". You have to remove the jet from the tub first, then smear the plumber's putty around the junction where the two meet each other, then reassemble.

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 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

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.

IF NO RUBBER GASKET IS PROVIDED, THEN PLUMBERS PUTTY WILL SUFFICE. UNDERNEATH, ANOTHER RUBBER GASKET AND/OR PAPER GASKET, THEN THREAD ON THE NUT. TIGHTEN IT SNUGLY.

The order of installation starting from the top side is the flanged drain then a bead of plumber's putty, and don't skimp on the putty. On the bottom side, first the rubber gasket then the metal washer, finally the locking ring. You must use the plumber's putty between the sink\tub surface and the flange. My mom thought the same thing. She return her drain twice before she asked me why it was leaking:)
Hope this helps.

Water leaks from around drain in our korral whirlpool tub. Also from around the light that is in tub. Our local plumbers say they cannot find replacement parts..can it be fixed by just using plumbers...


Use of plumber putty should do the trick. take it apart clean it well and apply the putty. For the light, use silicon glue. You can get a tube at any hardware store. There are many different kinds, just read the label and find one for bathroom use. clean around the light and apply. If your unit is white use white silicone, if it is a color use clear.

Hope this helps.

Dripping garbage disposal. looks to be dripping from aroud joint where there may b a gasket?


Your leak is due to a break in the plumbers putty at that location. It will have to be taken apart so the old putty can be removed and new plumbers putty can be put in.
