HOW DO I FITVA NEW WASHER


I presume this is the washer around the plug hole.
If yes then then look under the sink for where the plug exits the bottom of the sink. Detach the waste pipe. Then the large (often plastic) locking nut that holding the plug assembles in place.

Push up on the plug assembly and it should come out up in to sink. Find the washer and replace it.

When reassembling pack everything out with a plumbers putty such as plumber mate. If you use plenty of putty you may not even need to replace the washer.

Leak at new strainer waste fitting


Did you put the rubber gasket and cardboard sleeve on the bottom of the sink(next to the nut and did you use plumbers putty on the top part of the sink under the top section of the basket. Hint if you put some soap on the gasket under the sink between it and the nut it will be easier to tighten also you must secure the top part of the basket as you turn the nut if not the plumbers putty will not seal. If you do not have the strainer basket holding tool wrench you can substitute with a pare of needle nose pliers. Large channel locks or pliers can work to turn the large nut on bottom. If you can recruit a helper to hold the top part of the strainer basket with the needle nose pliers it make the job of tightening the large nut easier. When a large amount of the plumbers putty has squeezed out and the strainer is flush with the sink you should have a tight seal.

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

What is the proper way to install a BLANCO sink strainer Kitchen Sink COD.100113 I believe is the code # Thank you


Hello, W/D here.

To install your strainer, you'll need some plumber's putty. The old one is removed by loosening the large ring on the underside and the strainer pulls out from the sink side. Once you are down to just the hole in the sink, you're ready to install the new strainer.
Get a portion of the plumber's putty in your hand about the size of a golf ball. divide it into two portions. Take one part, and roll it in between your hands, palms together and vertical, making a rope.
Take your rope, and place it around the sink hole. If you need more putty, roll the other portion in a similar fashion, and continue around the hole. You may need to overlap the rope putty where it's thin and at the ends to make sure that you get a good seal when you apply pressure the the basket. Place the strainer basket in the hole and press it down lightly, just enough to hold it in place. From under the sink, place the gaskets on the threads, followed by yjr large ring nut that will hold it all in place. Usually, there are two gaskets, a paper type, and a plastic type. Put the paper one on first, followed by the plastic, then the nut. Screw the nut down, applying some pressure to the strainer and plumber's putty. Adjust the strainer now, centering it in the depression in the bottom of the sink. Continue tightening the ring nut, pulling the strainer down into the sink, and squeezing the plumber's putty out, making a seal. Get it pretty snug, and wait a minute. The putty will continue to settle in the seal, and you will be able to tighten it some more after it does. Do this several times, and you'll end up with a good seal that will last. Take a regular screwdriver, and trace it around the strainer on the sink side to release the excess putty. You can ball it up, and press it back into the tub of putty, ready for the next time.

Best regards, --W/D--

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!

I recently installed 2 Kohler bathroom sinks 16x19". One of them keeping leaking at the bottom of the sink where the 1 and 1/4" pipe connects. I did not put plumbers putty in as instructed. It leaked, so I...


remove the waste fitting and clean off all the putty. Using a clear or white silicon put some under the waste fitting collar then insert it into the basin hole. Next put the washer and nut on and wind it up to about 1/2" from the basin. Using the silicon again put plenty on between the washer and basin ensuring complete coverage of the waste circumference. Hand tighten the nut until silicon pushes out from the sides of the joint. Finally tighten about 1/2 turn using water pump pliers.
Wipe off all excess silicon.
You can tighten a little more if the waste fitting is all metal but i'm guessing its plastic and it is possibly being overtightened.

Can't remove metal drain assembly for moen bathroom faucet. The metal lip that is on the sink.


you must have a pair of stillsons or a wrench that can handle round pipe . under the sink you have the s/p trap . remove trap with two wrenches because you turn them in opposite direction to get full control . once you remove the trap wich is self explained . the plug and waste wich you are having the problem with is stuck in ther with putty or silicone or any thing like that so now you have access to the bottom of the waste you put your wrench on the waste plug and turn it any way you can left or right you want to break the water seal without breaking your sink the water seal [the silicone or putty ] is really tuff so you have to use full strength without breaking the sink like i said . the older the harder to get out . im a plumber and have had plenty of tuff ones but they allways give without cracking the sink so go hard but be careful as well

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.
