SOURCE: Basket Strainer Specs Question

1\ Amount of free open area is the ratio of the open area through the strainer basket to the cross sectional area of the pipe. A good basket strainer should have a ratio of 4 to 1. 2\ Ease of basket removal is important because baskets may require frequent cleaning or replacing due to buildup. 3\ Compactness of the design saves you valuable space. A small strainer is less bulky and easier to handle. 4\ Availability of basket perforation sizes gives the strainers the flexibility to cope with a wide range of particle sizes.

SOURCE: How to Clean Pump Strainer basket

Turn the swimming pool pump off and wait for the water to drain from the strainer basket. You want to make sure that the pump is completely off before you proceed. Remove the screws or any items securing the lid of the strainer basket. Open the lid and pull out the strainer basket. Vacuum the strainer basket or scoop out any debris. You may want to run clear water through the basket to ensure you removed all debris. Feel toward the impeller and remove any clogs or obstructions preventing the impeller from working properly. Check the o-ring under the cover of the pump strainer housing. You may need to use a silicon lubricant to ensure a water-tight seal. Put the strainer basket back into the pump strainer housing and pour some water into the basket. Replace the lid and secure it in place. Turn the swimming pool pump on and check for proper pressure. If your pressure doesn't register, you may need to troubleshoot to find the problem.

SOURCE: Gap between basket & body of basket strainer

can you clarify that, i am not sure what part of a basket strainer dimension you are refering to. the dimensions of a basket strainer are related to the standards of the fixtures they are installed on. It has to be designed to work on different thickness of materials; thick materials such as cast iron or marble and thin materials like stainless steal and pressed steal. I have experiensed some strainers that do not meet this and are not deep enough to fit thick materials o r do not tighten enough to handle then materials.

SOURCE: peeling paint coming off of oil rubbed bronze basket strainer

Bronze is more expensive than standard mass production is worth, i supposed if you want them made out of any mat. you can call kohler and pay for it, i've been to their plant and they do some pretty awsome custom work.
Rubbed oil is just a color and somtimes "you get what you pay for" if you buy a cheap basket strainer they usually do exactly what you're saying.
You can buy more expensive strainers that have a better finish, I know Kohler and Moen have lifetime warranty finish on many of their higher end products.

I would suggest you replace the entire basket strainer. I can honestly say that in 30 years I have never seen two that were alike.

What is the difference between standard strainer and strainer for food erator? I bought a replacement sink wiht standard strainer, which does not seems to fit garbage disposal


If you need new sink strainer basket for disposal side of sink, you have to buy new disposal.

Each garbage disposal comes with its own strainer basket so that disposal can connect and seal.

First, the disposal strainer basket is installed, and then disposal lifts up and attaches from below.
A rubber gasket comes with new disposal.
Rubber gasket fits between disposal and strainer basket so that disposal seals correctly.

Photo below shows how disposal connects to strainer basket using steel connector ring under the sink.

Leaking from the bottom after removing something that got stuck in the spinning peace


Check a couple things.
Use paper towel and see if top of disposal is damp or wet. The basket strainer might have come loose and water is leaking down.
Fill sink and then release water all at once and check strainer basket and dishwasher hose.
Check where tubular pipe connects to side of disposal. Sometimes this joint can leak, and then water appears at bottom of disposal.

If top of disposal is dry and tubular pipe is not leaking, then disposal is suspect.
Disposals rust out, and dislodging something from cutter plate can open final crack.

If basket strainer is leaking, and disposal is older than 5-8 years, you might consider new disposal since disposal has to be completely removed to reseal basket strainer. See link below for basket strainer steps.

If it comes to this, I wrote tips for installing new disposal

Strainer lower washer,not basket strainer, do you have source?


Not sure what you are asking. If it is broken it can be replaced, any hardware store would carry it. If it is leaking, try using plumbers putty. Roll it between your hands like play-dough. Roll it into long skinny string about a pencil width, and place it under the lip of the basket strainer where it makes contact with the inside of the sink. Proceed to tighten from underneath. Keep the basket strainer as still as you can. Remove excess putty.

Sink Basket leaks and cant be removed cause of silicon adhesive


steady pressure from under the underside of the sink should cause the silicone to flex and eventually release.

You might also try some caulking remover available ot hardware stores. It's a product that comes in a tube and eases the removal of caulking products.

Be sure to look at the label for cautions and materials that it is safe to use it on.
