How to fix the drain of my kitchen sink?
posted by Brian James to home & garden (4 answers total)
I have a stainless steel kitchen sink that does not drain fully.
The drain at the bottom is not flush with the bottom surface of the sink; the drain sticks out slightly above the bottom (maybe 1/8 to 1/4 of an inch), and so there is always a small "halo" of water surrounding the ring where the drain meets the bottom of the sink. It doesn't dry, and so I have to clean regularly or else mold forms there.
This strikes me as something that could be adjusted, but I don't know how. I'm generally pretty handy around the house although in the past I have steered clear of monkeying with plumbing lest I create a leak.
Anyone out there know what I'm talking about, and how to fix it?
