In response to Re: Leaking drain
Where did you use the putty? If you just added a connection for the dishwasher, there is nothing you would have had to remove that needs putty to put it back. If you replaced the strainer in the sink, then you may have gotten putty into the threads and it will not tighten. Or you may need to install a new strainer.

: I had to remove my kitchen sink drain to install some new plumbing to allow for a dishwasher hookup. When I reinstalled the drain I placed a generous amount of plumbers putty around the opening and reinstalled the drain. I can't get it to stop leaking, please advise. Also, do you really need an airgap for the dishawasher?
