Customer Questions & Answers

Can I get a screw for the brass locking plate for Kohler Sink Drain Model K-R8799-C-BN

My drain is leaking around the seal in the drain between the drain and the sink base and I think it is due to the fact that it was installed with only two screws in the brass round plate which holds the drain in place.. Before I take the drain apart I want to put the third screw in the empty hole and tighten it. The other drain same model has no leaks and it has the three screws installed.Thank you for your assistance

What’s the difference between K-R8799-C-BN and K-8799-BN.

Asked by: Anonymous
It is ironic that Kohler says there is no difference at all physically, yet the price is about DOUBLE for model K-8799-BN.

Duostrainer 4-1/2 in. Sink Strainer in Vibrant Brushed Nickel is rated 2.2 out of 5 by 25.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy, I bought two and both are junk within five years. I bought two of these in June 2010 because they are Kohler and the best that were in stock. I put one in my main kitchen sink and one in the island sink. The one under the main kitchen sink started leaking, luckily I was under the sink moving things around because it was a small leak and would have ruined everything before it showed. I remove the drain and the nut that holds the PVC drain pipe to the drain is corroded so much that it failed. I was shocked after five years of household use it failed. I have had many houses over the years and have never had this happen with even builder grade parts. I went to the Home Depot and was looking at another Kohler to replace this one and realized that the one that is on display has a heavy brass nut and the one for sale has a cheesy chrome plated nut. Mine is a cheesy nut as well. The drain in my island sink is almost never used and this one the finish started coming off within two years. Both were purchased together cleaned with the same cleaners so not sure why this happened. I have really nice house and after 22 years in the military I know how to run a tight ship. It is unfortunate that if I were to hold inspection in my kitchen I would fail myself for both drains. I would like a response from Kohler if possible.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beautiful look horrible design DO NOT BUY I had two of these in a previous house and they did not hold water well. I moved to another house and for some crazy reason purchased this after I purchased a Kohler cast iron sink.This one does not hold water at all. No matter how hard I try I have even pushed down on the strainer knob and still does not hold water. Horrible product and way over priced!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Be aware of bad strainer sealing design First the 1 3/4" o-ring on the strainer just stops sealing. Mine got slightly bigger over time, swelling and it just doesn't seal anymore. That swelling took less than a year however. After 2 years of use, the chrome finish has worn off. The drains now look like they have the patina of a 50 year old drain. Brass and scratches. Very thin chrome plating. Do not assume abrasive cleaners were used because they most certainly were not. It feels so good installing. Solid, precise and looks so sexy just after. Too bad there are much cheaper units that will hold water better and longer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Use threadlocker on screws The strainer is worth the price because the threads are cut, not rolled so the tailpiece stays tight. Having the three screws to tighten to the sink avoids having a torque load on the sink. Could be an issue when the sink is a newly installed under-mount to avoid disturbing the silicone seal. Only issue was the loss of two of the three screws after six months. I think it was due to vibration caused by the disposal but the screws are 1/4-20 x 3/4 Phillips pan stainless screws. Advise using non-permanent thread-locker for the screws to avoid the problem.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't buy Looks great out of box. Finish wears off very quick. I lost the o-ring to the drain 3 months after install, replacements don't stay on well. Flange for the plunger separated from the strainer after about 18 months, fitting will be difficult to reseat. Now it's totally useless.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Strainer broke and finish wore off Had this installed by a Plummer when my kitchen was redone. The knob on the strainer basket broke off after a couple of years at the weld and the silver finish wore off after a few years of cleaning. And yes, we do use cleanser on our stainless steel sink. How else do you get it clean? I will buy a cheaper all stainless steel one and replace it myself. Do not buy this overpriced junk.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The rubber goes under the sink To all of you who are complaining about the rubber o ring don't use it on top of the sink. You use plumbers putty under the flange on top and then put the rubber ring underneath. Call a plumber next time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from poor product to be Kohlor great looking product but will not hold water in sink, twist and turn to try to get it to seal, works okay sometimes but most of the time it will not hold water
