hi..just installed new moen bath faucet in brand new vanity top.
i put putty under drain flange, tightened down gasket ring/washer setup down below and STILL i get slight leak from the flange in sink!
ok, then i realize the sink manufacturer doesnt advise to use putty because it might damage the finish, ( not that it mattered because the putty didnt work anyway! ) so i switched to white silicone caulking. i applied a ring under the flange and for good measure i put a ring in the sink where the flange would lay. STILL, i get the drip from this area!!!
before that, i had used a washer under the flange and ,yes, STILL drip drip drip!!!
my next step is just to put a thin skim coat of clear silicone around the drain flange from the top of sink. how could water possibly seep thru after that?!!!!
what the heck am i doing wrong???
thanx for any advice.............mike
