    Thanks, all. You're right... I should have used putty, but I wasn't thinking. Instructions said silicone, I used silicone.

    Hi,

    I installed a new pop up assembly (Peerless) in this sink, and made a bit of a mess of it, I guess by not getting the excess silicone all cleaned off quickly enough. Still, I figured I would...

    Thanks, guys, I appreciate the assistance. Instructions for the drain are just as you say, silicone under the flange. I don't want to make this any more complicated than it needs to be, and I know I...

    No, no, no.... it is a plastic shower base. The walls are tile, the floor is a plastic base.

    Thanks, all. I think we have had this seven or eight years. I tried to pop the canopy off, but while the nut turns the bolt or whatever is inside it turns as well so it won't come off. I guess...
