Us a clear sanitary grade silicone

The Plumbers putty will do the trick but it needs cleaning off very carefully where as the clear silicone blends

When installing do you silicone each piece for example the faucet , the soap dispenser ,the sprayer , and the tap


Hi seawitch678,

If you have a granite or stone countertop/sink, use silicone as plumber's putty will stain the stone. Plumber's putty is petroleum based so it will not adhere to stone. Normally you should use what the manufacturer recommends and where they recommend. When installing a faucet, put either around the base of any piece that goes through the countertop.

Hope this helps. If it does, I'd appreciate your vote. Thanks,

Two rubber gaskets and a fiber gasket came with new strainer. do i use all the gaskets? what about plumbers putty


You are attaching sink strainer to sink opening.
1) Use plumber's putty. Finger-size roll of plumbers putty is applied around opening from top, or applied to the bottom of strainer basket. (Some sinks require silicone. Do not use silicone unless required by the sink manufacturer.)
2) Sink strainer is pushed into the sink opening, making sure it is centered and level.
3) From below, the rubber gasket is applied first, and then the paper gasket is second, and then the basket locknut.
4) Tighten locknut very firmly.
5) Wipe away excess putty on bottom.
6) Push down stainer from top again, and tighten nut some more.
7) Wipe away excess putty around bottom and top.

8) The cardboard washer lets the locknut rotate easily.

Both of the Pegasus baskets in my sink have come apart. I put them back together and they come apart again. I would like to purchase new baskets, but can only find the entire drain assembly, which I do...


I know what you mean I had similar problems with my sink strainers, unfortunately is you want to get a good working basket you have to buy the whole drain assembly. You can get some cheap ones at a home store but they will only break again and probably won't match up. What I recommend is swapping out your drains with a drain brand that won't break again like Kohler, Moen, or Elkay. All you need to install a new drain is the new drains, a drain nut removal tool and some plumbers putty. Take the old drain out clean around the whole and install the new one with a ring of plumbers putty around the hole.

I have a kohler cast iron enamel sink. The


ALL BASKET STRAINERS ARE PRETTY MUCH THE SAME. PLUMBERS PUTTY WORKS FINE. I BELIEVE ITS THE ORDER OF INSTALL THAT IS CAUSING THE LEAKS. STRAINER AND RUBBER GASKET GOES IN FROM THE TOP. IF NO RUBBER GASKET IS PROVIDED, THEN PLUMBERS PUTTY WILL SUFFICE. UNDERNEATH, ANOTHER RUBBER GASKET AND/OR PAPER GASKET, THEN THREAD ON THE NUT. TIGHTEN IT SNUGLY.
