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.
If it is truly a porcelin top then you can use a product called plumbers putty available at your local hardware store. It will conform to the shape of the drain and provide a good seal. If this is a cast marble or resin type of product then plumbers putty will void any warranty and possibly discolor the sink. Ensure it is indeed porcelin before continuing and follow the manufacturers directions for installation. Good luck with your project.
This takes a professional who who is used to this kind of thing and has been doing plumbing for a long time, this is a custom job due to the fact the you must make it up as you go. IF the pipe is at a bad angle and its messing everything up causing it to leak , there is nothing you can do to fix it besides fixing the pipe where it is in the wall or coming up threw the floor then you have normal working conditions work with and everything should line up strait and work normal. In the case you had a poor installation of the sinks and they are leaking from where the caulk and mounting brackets then i would find some one who knows what they are doing re do it and install it right and solve this simple problem of knowing what to do when and how...
Best place for something like this is your local TV or radio stations that have consumer help departments. They call the manufacturer and let them know they will be putting this problem on the air if it is not properly resolved.
I would recommend getting and installing a better quality basket strainer that has a thicker "lip". Also, you need a good amount of plumbers putty underneath the lip of the basket strainer as well. Try not to use silicone to seal under it, it doesn't stand up to use. I would purchase a solid brass strainer rather than the thin stainless ones. They are more expensive, but are worth the money.
Your problem is: You need some instructions on how to install a sink in your new house
We could set up an on line chat right here at a convenient time for both of us. I can talk you through it. It would be helpfull if you had the ability to take pictures and up load them at that time so I can see what you've got. The only sink I don't recomend for homeowner installation is a pedistal sink. They are very difficult even for a plumber.
