The stainless steel basin had a pair of big holes in the bottom, suitable for attaching strainer baskets or a garbage disposal. The basket comes with a black rubber gasket that seals underneath the basin, a thick paper washer, and a die-cast metal lock nut to clamp the basket onto the basin. There is also a smaller lock nut that connects the sink tail-piece (the first part of the drain system) to the basket. You should apply a bead of clear silicone to the rim of the opening. Also apply a small bead of silicone to the underside of the edge of the basket. olding the basket by the center, set it in the hole and gave it a slight turn to spread the silicone slightly. Down Under: apply a thin layer of pipe thread compound (a.k.a. pipe dope) to the larger diameter threads. Few plumbers use thread compound here, but I believe in lubricating threads whenever possible. There have been so many times that I needed to remove a basin lock nut, but was unable to because of the slight corrosion that inevitably forms there. Thread compound would prevent this problem. The metal lock nut, the rubber gasket and the paper washer were installed, turning by hand most of the way. The only practical way to tighten these huge lock nuts is to use a pair of 18" jumbo Channel-Lock pliers. To hold the basket from turning, use a pair of screwdrivers placed in an X-formation in the little holes. The lock nut must not be over-tightened, or the rubber gasket can be squeezed out of place, which could cause a leak.

Do you need to use the stainless steel basket


No you do not. The food will still cook the same but it is better if you use the baskets provided especially if you are mixing different food items in the one cook.

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.

Sink Basket leaks and cant be removed cause of silicon adhesive


steady pressure from under the underside of the sink should cause the silicone to flex and eventually release.

You might also try some caulking remover available ot hardware stores. It's a product that comes in a tube and eases the removal of caulking products.

Be sure to look at the label for cautions and materials that it is safe to use it on.

Stainless Steel Sink Question


s with most things, your stainless steel sink WILL scratch with use. However, over time as the sink ages, scratches will become less apparent and in fact blend into the surface. Minor scratches on the inside surfaces of the bowl may be blended into the sink by lightly rubbing a Scotchbrite pad in the direction of the finish grain. Be sure to rinse thoroughly with water and towel dry after this procedure, removing any particles left over from the Scotchbrite as you rinse.

SCRATCHED STAINLESS STEEL SINK


Have you tried a really fine steel wool? I don't know if this would work. I have stainless steel farmhouse sink, front exposed all stainless steel. My contractor scratched it up horribly when he was putting it into the kichen. he fixed it amazingly with a fine steel wool pad. I don't know if your scratch is too deep for that but it couldn't hurt. The scratches on our sink were surface but very noticeable. Hope this helps.
