Sorry, I should have written this first. It's been in use for 10 or
more years. It is stainless steel on formica like counter top.
Currently in place but it seems to allow water underneath it. It gets a
bad rotten odor sometimes, so I'm guessing water is going under and
getting wicked up by the wood counter top. Since before I lived here
there has been a small area where the laminate is bulging, as if it got
wet underneath and swelled up. I already had it out a year or so ago
and used silicone to reseal it. Still when I least expect it, it smells
and I can't find the source. When I start sniffing around, the smell
goes away. It does smell a little underneath, but nothing as bad as the
occasional smell up top. The trap does hold water, and at one point I
thought the smell had permeated the plastic drain and replaced that.
Still smells. Again, excuse me for not telling the full story first.
You might have gotten some moisture under the base cabinet. Any way to
lift the bottom out to clean it?
When our sink was installed, the contractor ran silicone caulk around
the rim of the sink on the undersurface and again around the edge after
it was in place. That was after he tried to get away with no caulk or
fasteners and a slightly warped sink. Late Friday, he thought we were
dumb and wouldn't care, I guess.
