It's normal for the pieces of your sink to degrade over time, and sometimes these degradations cause leaks beneath your sink. A kitchen sink basket is a typical component that needs to be replaced due to cracks, leaks, or wear. If you have leaks under your sink that originate from the top part of the drain pipe that connects to the sink basin, you may need to replace your sink’s basket strainer, as this is the interface between the drain and sink. This tutorial will guide you on how to replace your old basket strainer with a new one.
