  1. #1

    Default kitchen sink installation

    purchased acri-tec drop in sink... instructions say run bead of chaulk under lip and drop into place.
    installed sink and 16hrs later the sink lifted right out

    Default sink

    You did not use an adhesive caulk. Putty of any kind is not adhesive so the sink would still come loose. Use the plumber's putty between the drain and the sink with the rubber gasket on the bottom, unless there are two rubber gaskets in which case the thin one goes on top.

    use phenoseal caulk (non yellowing adhesive) then put weight in the sink. clean excess with damp sponge.
