This is all wrong! You can't use plumbers putty on a granite sink! You're supposed to use a sink and tub caulk which unfortunately is a real pain to get seal. Read the directions on a granite sink... they say DO NOT USE PLUMBERS PUTTY!

You shouldn't need a special strainer.
Where the strainer meets the sink surface, ( the lip of the strainer ), should have plumber's putty.
Take a chunk of plumbers putty and roll it out like a snake and then stick it under the lip of the srainer all the way around. Set the strainer in the hole and then on the bottom side add the rubber seal, then the cardboard, or metal glide ring and then the nut.
As you tighten the nut it will squeeze out the excess putty and allow you to remove it.
1. Sometimes people try to use the rubber seal on the top side of the sink, but it goes on under the sink.
2. The cardboard/metal glide ring prevents the nut from tearing up the rubber seal so you can really tighten it.

I hope this helps you!
Thanks, Donnie

Is there a way to bypass the disposal to be able to use the sink w/o the water dripping from the bottom of the Badger 5 disposal?

If disposal is leaking, it has to be removed before it damages cabinet and causes mildew.
Then install a different strainer basket if you want to connect tubular drain.

Tubular sink basket
Disposal sink basket:

You can also buy same brand and size disposal and install without changing sink basket.

More than likely it's leaking from where the body meets the sink. U might need to pull it apart, clean it up, and re apply plumbers putty to the sink and re apply the body. If you are doing this I would recommend buying a new basket assembly from the hardwear store. Just makes more sence than re using the old one. That is enles it's new. Hope this helps

What strainer/disposal basket do I need to buy for Porcher Farm Sink? Sink did not come with strainer/disposer trim.

I believe this uses a standard 3 1/2 inch diameter basket strainer.That is also the right size for the disposal. Thank you

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.

I wrote tips for installing a disposal from days when I worked apartment maintenance.

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.

I need a new franke sink basket strainer for my franke sink model PRX11021 - stainless steel. What is the model number that will fit this sink and can I order it online or go to a local store?

You should purchase a complete basket strainer assembly. Home Depot or Lowes have some very nice ones. They are a standard size.
Tell them it's for your kitchen sink.
