Besides, how do I install a pop up drain in my yard?
Step 1: Dig a hole underneath your gutter downspout and place a catch basin in the hole. Step 2: Dig a trench from the catch basin to a curb, creek, alley, or other area where the runoff water can easily drain. Step 3: Fasten a pipe near the bottom of the catch basin and run it along the bottom of the trench.
Beside above, can you use silicone instead of plumbers putty? Plumber's putty is one of the basics tools in a plumber's tool bag. Also, silicone is not as easy you work with and is not as dense as plumber's putty, so it's not as good at filling wide gaps, and plumbers don't need time to dry just like caulk does.
Beside this, can you replace the drain in a sink?
Replacing a Sink Drain Instructions: Reach behind your drain and unscrew the cap around the pop-up ball and rod. Remove them from the drain. (FYI, if you ever have a broken pop-up, you can fix your pop-up stopper with this tutorial.) Use your pliers to loosen the nut on the drain and remove it.
How do you get a sink stopper out?
Unscrew the grey nut on the backside of the drain and pull this out (you might need a wrench if hand strength isn't enough). Go ahead and clean this with a little soapy water and a brush. Put a bucket under the drain just in case there is any dripping water. Now the stopper is free and can be removed from the sink.
