The order of installation starting from the top side is the flanged drain then a bead of plumber's putty, and don't skimp on the putty. On the bottom side, first the rubber gasket then the metal washer, finally the locking ring. You must use the plumber's putty between the sink\tub surface and the flange. My mom thought the same thing. She return her drain twice before she asked me why it was leaking:)
Hope this helps.

Blanco Supreme 533-U sink drain leaking at seal


The sink basket/strainer that fits into the large hole of the sink should have either a bead of silicone sealant applied to the sealing lip of the assembly or a ring of plumbers putty. Silicone will work very well if the mating flanges are clean and dry.

With the baket in place, the rubber seal goes between the large nut and the sink. A bead of silicon on this is optional on the sink side of that rubber seal. and the nut tightened down snug , forcing some of the silicone out fro beneath the mating flange and rubber seal. Tight enough so the basket is not free to move. Be it plastic or brass/metal, that order is the same, only a plastic nut is not tightened as tightly as a metal nut would be.

On the bottom of the drain basket assembly there is a nut, to retain a plastic or brass tail piece. The plastic tail piece will have a polyetheylene "flanged washer" for a seal to the bottom of the sink basket. If it is a brass tailpiece, a rubber seal and metal nut is used with "pipe dope"/thread sealing compound used on the threads of the metal nut. With the plastic nut, you can apply a few wraps of teflon tape to the threads of the drain basket, but is not required in most cases as the poly flanged washer will form the seal. The plastic nuts should not be tightened any more than hand tight.

beneath that, the rest of the drain assembly attaches. If plastic- no more than hand tight. if metal, only about 1/4 turn past hand tight. Metal nuts and parts should use rubber gaskets/seals and the plastic parts should only use the poly tapered/lip seals.

I can't get the faucet to not move from side to side after it is tightened donw on the granite vanity top. The base is tight and does not move, but the faucet part still moves a little. How can this be...


The faucet should have come with a rubber gasket which goes between the faucet body and the granite top. Make sure it's properly aligned and has not slipped out of place. Be carefull when tightening the faucet to the granite, since granite is easily cracked.

My daughter pushed down on the plug & now it doesnt pop up!! lever at back doesnt work as the suction is so good!


drain assembly can be taken apart from under the lav. first loosen the stopper lever assembly. then proceed to loosening up the slip-nut on piping nearest to the drain. The drain is held to bottom of sink by a nut tightened to a thick rubber washer. Remove nut and remove drain. Dislodge stopper. Replace drain with fresh plumbers putty, underneath lip of drain where it makes contact with inside of lav. Reassemble drain piping and lever.
