So I believe this strainer in made in the USA but I might be wrong Read Less

Will the duostrainer mate up to abs, cpvc, or other plasic tubular tailpieces? If so will the connection use plastic nut

This question is from Duostrainer 4-1/2 in. Sink Strainer in Polished Chrome
December 19, 2015
Current tailpiece has a inlet from the dishwasher drain, and the abs tailpieces have the nut connector on there as it will not fit around the the branch or barb for the dishwasher drain,

Answer: 
The Duostrainer will take a standard tailpiece, metal ot plastic. You would still use the metal nut that comes with the Duostrainer. It has a flat rubber washer at that point as well.

Answer: 
It's a "+" of insanely thick (vertically) brass -- like everything else about this vs everything else available, you can't break this.
The stopper is a two ton plutonium disk; the stem in the strainer basket will pull it up, turning it slightly keeps it up. For a metal stopper, it does not leak.
These things should not be worth mentioning, but if you're shopping for stuff like this, you know these days Read More

Answer: 
Day three with this and a new basin, zero finish issues, vs a slight rust formation already showing on the basin. What bothers me about this is it's so gleaming perfect, it highlights my putty not-completely-cleaning-up around it.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 24 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by nice heavy strainer Ordered late on a Sunday night and delivered on Tuesday morning. I replaced both strainers that, after 21 years, were rusted out on a Kohler porcelain kitchen sink . These strainers are much heavier and better quality than the strainers that they replaced. Easy install. September 27, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sink strainer This sink basket is Beautiful! It fit perfectly in my 20yr old Kohler sink. July 12, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Piece of Junk I bought 2 of these to replace my 25 year old strainers that would no long hold water in the sink. I thought they were expensive but looked like good quality. I put one in the kitchen sink and one in the laundry sink, which I mainly use to thaw out turkeys. After I had already thrown out my old fixtures I discovered that both would not hold water. They were no better than my old 25 year old ones. I filled the laundry tub with cold water and a frozen turkey and the next morning found an empty sink with a warm turkey in it. Besides this most fundamental reason for having a stopper, they are frustrating to use. You have to set the stopper in just the right position or it closes on you, filling the sink with water when you don't want it. It was a lot of work to replace these and now I'm stuck with them because I didn't keep the old ones. January 22, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The best I have ever seen I am a very serious DIY person that has been installing sinks for nearly 50 years. This strainer is the best I have seen (built like a tank) and the easiest to install - you just tighten three screws under the sink with a Philips screw driver. March 25, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Fits better than others Good fit and finish This unit is thin enough at the edges that it fits well in the bottom of a conventional cast iron sink, but still strong enough. Others often present a high edge that collects food. Went back to this Kohler design. January 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Not sure why this is cheaper I've had this chrome duostrainer for two weeks now; I got it at a local home depot for $8 more, but then I probably would have gone with a loss leader had I ordered online. In the store, there's this, then all the others, the weight itself is worth the cost. Terribly simple to install; I went with the cheap putty vs the non-staining putty -- go with the non-staining for this; I'm sure the residue will eventually go away completely, but it is amazing how it initially latches on. I've run about 40 gallons of water with about 4 gallons of bleach over the past two weeks, and have dropped mason jars that cracked on it -- so far, no threat of the finish chipping nor wasting. It's tough to find a drain basket with a metal bottom -- this has a 1/4"+ thick brass "+" you can't damage; the stopper is a thick, heavy disk with a thin o-ring around it -- it seals perfectly, and if it does degrade, I don't expect to have a problem finding a silicone replacement -- worse comes to worse, dental floss plus a very brief, light flame is an easy fix. I got this for Kohler's Prolific sink -- Kohler is pricy, imperfect, but they deliver what you expect; anything cheaper will be largely plastic and sheet metal. I'm honestly more concerned about damaging the sink than this all heavy-metal strainer. September 16, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Easy to install!!! The original strainer installed in my kitchen sink had to much plumbers putty and was misaligned. After trying to fix it I ended up breaking the huge nut that tightened the strainer to the sink. So, I bought this one which was twice as much as most of the other ones in the store because it looked easy to install. It in fact was one of the easiest home improvement projects I have ever done. The whole install took less than 10 minutes. Not only was it easy to install but the quality of the drain plug and how nice it looks in the sink is not even comparable to the original model. It is worth the extra money! March 26, 2013
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by A Screw Loose Hard to install when no screws were included....once we got beyond that (my plumber fortunately had some in his truck), it looks and functions great. May 19, 2015
