If you are looking to deck out your kitchen sink, you should do it with a sink strainer basket that will match your kitchen faucet finish. The best sink strainers allow you to separate large food particles from water before sending it down the drain. Without a kitchen sink strainer, it’s a tedious process and large chunks of food may end up creating a mess in the plumbing. If the food does get in your pipes it may create clogs, stoppage, or back-flow problems.
As mentioned, they are designed to allow water to drain into the kitchen pipes along with very small particles of waste. If the particle is too large to pass through the holes of the strainer it will remain in the strainer. Any items that are unable to pass through the holes in the sink strainer and become caught in the bowl portion of the strainer should be removed of and disposed either down the garbage disposal or thrown in the trash can. Have a sink strainer basket installed in a sink bowl that does not have a garbage disposal is a smart way to avoid any headaches caused by food going down the wrong drain.
Here at PlumbersStock, we offer a variety of sink strainers in multiple finishes. Kitchen faucets and accessories are available in a wide array of styles and looks, such as one-handle, with soap dispenser, etc. Sink strainer baskets are now being manufactured in order to match the kitchen faucet fixture and sink. If the kitchen faucet is made of stainless steel then you’ll probably want a stainless steel sink strainer. Gone are the days of chrome in the kitchen, many contractors and do-it-yourselfers are much more likely to install different finishes such as oil rubbed bronze or stainless steel. We have discovered that it is the little things that go a long way.
One of the most frustrating aspects of having a worn out kitchen sink strainer basket is that it will no longer function as a plug when there is a need to hold water in the sink bowl. Upgrading can lead to better visual appeal as well as better performance. The locking mechanism on a strainer will eventually wear out and need replacing, as do most kitchen fixtures and accessories. Strainers purchased from PlumbersStock are high quality, durable products that can be found in a variety of finishes to match the consumer’s desires.
