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.

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..

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

How much clearance do i need to leave on top of the water heater between the insulation and the chimmney? is the insulation fireproof?


Gas or electric?

1) Electric heater can be completely covered with insulation except TP valve. Set electric heater on insulated surface. Insulate pipes completely right down to tank.

2) Gas heater is different.
No insulation over combustion area, or gas valve, or air inlet or. No insulation on top of tank that will interfere with venting of dangerous combustion products including odorless CO gas. Foam insulation on pipes should stop 10" short of tank top. No insulation within 6" of the 3-4" inch galvanized vent pipe.

Here's photo with gas water heater insulation tips:
http://waterheatertimer.org/images/Insulate-gas-water-heater.jpg
http://waterheatertimer.org/9-ways-to-save-with-water-heater.html

3) Tankless gas. No insulation on box. No pipe insulation within 12". No insulation near vent pipe.

4) How much clearance between heater and chimney?? Not sure what that means. Is that the water heater vent stack? Or where vent stack goes into chimney stack? No insulation on gas flue pipes. Or within 6 inches of 3-4" water heater vent pipes

5) Is insulation fireproof? Everything burns if it's hot enough. If you throw insulation into backyard fire, paper and foil will burn away and insulation kind of falls apart in the heat. Fiberglass insulation cannot be set on fire with a match. Foam pipe insulation will burn.

Trouble with a Franke kitchen faucet - the spout has a retractable internal hose for spraying down the sink - it is not retracting as it should


Look at the clutter under the sink. Is the hose tangled or caught on something? There should be a weight clamped to the hose to make it fall back into place. This weight minght have slid down the hose.

I need a new franke sink basket strainer for my franke sink model PRX11021 - stainless steel. What is the model number that will fit this sink and can I order it online or go to a local store?


You should purchase a complete basket strainer assembly. Home Depot or Lowes have some very nice ones. They are a standard size.
Tell them it's for your kitchen sink.

Insulation


The insulation you spoke of is only for dampening sound that may come from the compressor area. You can remove the loose material and it will not cause any problem. The panel determines proper air circulation over the compressor and condenser.
