Tip

Simple Removal of Stuck Sink Stopper


I found an easy solution to removing a stuck stopper recently when I was fixing my kitchen sink and the stopper became vacuum-stuck. Instead of trying to pull on it (which will not work since the pressure is too great), or trying to release the vacuum by prying up an edge with a knife or other instrument (which would damage the stopper or sink), I used a (clean) toilet plunger to plunge the stopper out. Simply place the plunger squarely over the opening where the stopper is stuck and give it two good plunges. I got the stopper stuck several times while fixing the sink and this trick worked every time for getting the stopper unstuck. Make sure you are using a plunger that's cup-shaped (stands upright on its own), and not the kind that has a bulb at the end.

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--

What is the recommended sink mounting clip for a 22x33 sterling by kohler self rimming kitchen sink. I had purchased elkay "u" clips it does not appear that they will work.


Technically, you are suppose to have the clips holding the sink down. However, that is a pretty heavy sink you have. If you apply a clear tub/shower adhesive caulk around the opening for the sink, it will prevent the sink from shifting on you. Sometimes, as an added precaution, I will apply a second coat from underneath the sink after the first application has had time to cure. You will not have any problems in taking this approach to solve your problem. However, if you feel you absolutely need the clips, you can call Kohler to inform them that your sink did not come with these clips. It has been my experience that they will ship the clips out to you at n/c. Hope this helps.

Our bathroom pedestal sink is very slow drain and clogging -2 questiions: do you have to disassemble and take off sink mounts and remove from wall to get to elbow joint? I do not know how to disengage...


You shouldn't have to disassemble everything in order to get to the trap (elbow joint). Most pedestal sinks are designed so that you can get to the trap from the back (generally after getting down on your hands and knees and crawling around with a flashlight). Most sink stoppers that are worked from the faucet itself have a little bar that extends down the back of the sink behind the drain. It will clip with a little metal piece to a lever that sticks out the back of the drain before the trap. The lever goes through a hole in the drain and pokes into a hole in the bottom of your sink stopper. As you move the lever, you will notice that your stopper goes up and down.

Unclip the rod from the lever and you should be able to unscrew the lever from the back of the drain (don't loose the little gasket that sits inside the screw-cap as it keeps water from leaking out here). At this point, you can pull out the stopper and see what is going on. If cleaning off the stuff attached to your stopper doesn't solve the problem, you can then remove the trap to see if anything is clogging that. Hopefully, by this point, your sink clog has been identified and you just need to reassemble, making sure when you put your stopper lever back in that you actually get it into the appropriate hole in the stopper itself.

If this doesn't solve your problem, it's more serious and you probably want to call a plumber as the issue is either a clog farther along or a problem with the venting of the sink drain.

HI, I have an older American Standard kitchen sink. I am trying to remove the basket strainer, but it is not coming out, because it has no backing nut. I now have all the parts off that will come off,...


The opening below the strainer (the drain connection) has to have a backing nut, or it would have never sealed. Look again under the sink. It'll be a large diameter nut. You should be able to feel the threads. If possible, I prefer to remove the sink from the opening and work on it in the open, with the sink upside down. If you can locate the nut, get someone to keep it from spinning in the hole while you turn the nut. The easiest way to move these things without the proper wrench is to put penetrating oil on it, and drive it loose with a hammer and chisel. Best regards, --W/D--
