responsible for connecting the wash basin to the
drain pipe.

Because of constant exposure to water and through
continuous use, the strainer will sooner or later
corrode and cause leaks.

risk.

Follow this short DIY guide on how to install
kitchen sink strainers the right way!
7
  • Prepare your new sink strainer, plumbers putty
    and a pair of pliers.

8
  • Detach the pipe first. Remove the fittings and
    then make use of your pliers to remove the old
    sink strainers nut.

9
  • If the nut wont budge, get a hack saw and cut
    it. When youre done, pull the old strainer out
    of the sink.

10
  • Before the installation, make sure that youll
    clean the sink first. Guarantee that there are no
    sediments still stuck around the drain hole.

11
  • When the sink is already clean, get the new
    kitchen sink basket strainer and loosen its
    retainer screws.

12
  • Apply plumbers putty around the new strainers
    base. Make sure that youll put it under the lip
    area.

13
  • Carefully put the new strainer onto the sink
    hole. Press on it to make it adhere to the putty.
    You can also remove the excess with your putty
    knife.

14
  • When youre done, get under the sink and put the
    flexible washer into place. Also position the
    metal washer.

15
  • Thread the retainer to make the connection
    leak-free. Tighten the screws using a
    screwdriver. Do not over tighten the screws to
    prevent the washer from getting squeezed out.

16
  • Reinstall the pipes. Turn the tap on and watch
    out for leaks.
