If it's from the slipjoint washer just get rubber ones. Pop up strainers for bathroom sinks should get silicone between the black washer and the porcelain then tighten it up. On the p trap part without a washer wrap ptfe tape around the beveled part in the direction that slipjoint nut turns. If it's the pop up rod, there's a small plastic gas

Is plumber's putty just a meme product? Why the fuck not use silicone and be done with it.

>> No.1666518

Plumbers putty performs a better seal. Silicone is how a handy-man may do it, but if you want to do it like the pros do, just use plumbers putty between the popup-drain and the porcelain.

Silicone or dap is good for dapping around the sink/toilet, and that's it.

>> No.1666556

There’s nothing wrong with silicone, it’s widely used in the plumbing industry over putty.

>> No.1666560

Wrong. The thread are not what makes the seal
