The gasket coming out of bottom of our sink erator was leaking and spewing. when we replace the washer before bolting on the gasket do we use plumbers putty?


Plumbers putty is for setting sink basket into sink.
I use rectoseal on all tubular washers and joints,
Smear it on thick and then assemble parts, and rectoseal ensures nothing will leak.

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.

Use foam gasket on sink strainer along with plumber's putty?


Usually the gasket is not foam but black rubber. There may have been a piece of foam as packing to protect the stainless. You would apply the plumber's putty directly to the sink. Insert the strainer directly into the putty, compressing the putty. Under the sink, remove the excess putty that extruded through the opening. Apply the rubber gasket to the bottom of the sink, and then the nut (sometimes a "cup" and then the nut) .When the nut is tight, remove excess putty inside the sink. LEAKPROOF!

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.

In sink erator is leaking from bottom


I had this happen right before my disposal stopped working completely. Mine was leaking from the same place. The one I had was a 2 year Badger. They are easy to replace. If yours still works I would keep using it and just sit a pan down below to catch water. A new Badger 1 year cost $80 at Home Depot. If you get one, do not worry about buying extra gaskets or the black sink strainer thing because the new one will come with everything needed except for the plumbers putty. You will need plumbers putty. Good Luck

Sewer pipe


Hi sir simon,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: You're installing a new sewer pipe and wonderind how much fall it needs

1/4" per foot. You can buy a plumbers torpedo level to make it easy. You'll see 4 hash marks on the tube. Center the bubble in the middle and the pipe is level, so just adjust the pipe so that the bubble is just touching the outer line and you've got 1/4". No measureing. And it only costs a few dollars.

Water leaks from door


Hi dec507,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is: you have a Caloric Model CD4 200 CWW and water leaks on the right side of the door. The gasket seem to be worn.

The gasket is easy to replace but you should also check the d/w for level. I mean horizontal, vertical and front back. Over time they can get out of level enough to cause a problem.

Feel free contact me again!
