    Default leaky flange for bathroom sink

    I had to replace the flange the sink stopper goes into in my bathroom sink some years ago. About every two years or so, I have to take it apart and put more plumber's puddy underneath the flange so the sink doesn't drain when I use the stopper. This certainly isn't normal, and I was thinking of solving the problem by using silicone instead of plummer's puddy for a sealant. Is this a good idea?

    Your description is not very clear, but if you are talking about the drain assembly, you shouldn't put so much plumber's putty every so often.

    Remove your drain assembly and install a new one. No silicone needed.
