Why Using The Right Sealant Is Good When Installing New Kitchen Sink? If you’ve thought of replacing your old kitchen sink with a new one, there is no doubt that doing so will surely give a new look to your kitchen. However, this doesn’t mean to ignore some of the common plumbing and installation problems that arise out of your not focusing on factors that matter in this regard. And not choosing the right sealant is often one of the problems many homeowners experience often. Most of the times we see that during installation of kitchen sink, the plumber opt for putty as a standard sealant alternative for sink baskets. In certain cases, the plumber uses putty even for sink rims just to ensure that the material will give a long-lasting performance value to the kitchen sink installed thus. Well, the problem comes later. The issue with putty is that during the course of the time, there come certain cracks or dried out formations which further lead to seepage problem in your kitchen sink. Putty is made of certain materials which are not imperious to eventual dry-up or cracks. And when this happens, your kitchen sink stars to leak. This problem leads to further damage onto your some plastics, including those which were used to make sinks. The best option to avoid afore-said problem is to use a silicone caulk rather than putty to install kitchen sink. Best is to use solvent cleanup with the caulk. Make sure the sink opening has bead applied around it. Also, the drain opening area must have beads applied. Excess caulk must be wiped away. Need to install or replace kitchen sink?
