Plumbers putty or silicone?
I'm getting ready to install the new kitchen sink and being this is the first time doing this I'm trying to get prepared and learn all I can before diving in.
I used plumbers putty on the basket strainers and now I've got mixed info on what to use when mounting the sink to the counter.
Another thing I'm unsure of is the faucet is a single hole Delta which has a stainless cover that fits over a plastic spacer and I think it comes with a rubber gasket. I've been told in the past to throw rubber gaskets out and use putty when mounting a faucet?
All opinions and comments are welcome as always.
