kitchen sink strainer basket
Posted by Russell Maus on March 21, 19101 at 13:41:05:
My kitchen sink strainer basket leaks badly. I have set the basket in plumber's putty three times now, the previous time without the paper washer. I was told that the paper washer is critical to keeping the rubber washer from puckering, but I am skeptical that the putty will work at all and am considering using some silicone sealant (the next time a leak appears). What's my problem hot dishwater in the sink dissolves the putty, or just a poor install the first two times??
