Pegasus Push Button Drain leaks when you push the button

This is the "Decorative Push Button Drain", #241-405 brushed nickel.
It works fine unless you depress the button to allow water to collect in the basin. When you depress the button to drain the basin, the outflowing water leaks from the seal immediately below the basin. Otherwise it works fine.

The instructions caution against overtightening the locknut (which holds the beveled rubber washer against the bottom of the basin). I believe I was careful to not do so. Again, the leak only occurs after pressing the center button to let the water drain out of the basin. There is no leakage with normal use/running water.

Headlights go dim when try to start,but nothing happen the switch lights come on but dont start. 1800 vtx motorcycle 2003


The headlight is supposed to turn off when you push the starter button. If you push the starter button and the solenoid clicks, the button is good. If there is no power going to the solenoid you can try disassembling and cleaning the button. Take a wire and jump the two posts on the solenoid or touch the two cables together. If your starter works, then you need a new solenoid. If you hold the starter button and tap on the starter with a plastic hammer and the starter works you need new starter brushes. Anything else wrong with the starter and you need to replace the starter assembly , unless the manufacturer sells replacement parts so you can repair the starter. most manufacturers only sell replacement starter brushes.

I push the electric start button not a sound what could be wrong


Check to make sure the battery is fully charged and that the fuses are all good. If you push the starter button and the solenoid clicks, the button is good. Take a wire and jump the two posts on the solenoid or touch the two cables together, if your starter works, then you need a new solenoid. If you hold the starter button and tap on the starter with a plastic hammer and the starter works you need new starter brushes.

Pegasus Push Button Vessel Sink Drain with overflow


Put plumbers putty around the flange that will be in contact with the sink. When you put it into the hole, try to line up the overflow as good as possible. The nut that goes onto the bottom (tailpiece) has a rubber gasket that will go between the nut & the sink. Adding some plumbers putty here won't hurt. After all is secure, just remove the putty that squeezed out from tightening.
