as said, got a new sink waiting to install. only Q i have is what do i need to seal it to the counter top? it's a stainless sink, and the counter top is a laminate. just want to make sure i buy the right sealer before i start the job [local store seems to have a zillion or so different brands/choices].

thanks for any input,

Tom you can either use a latex or a silicone. As long as the sealer is designed for kitchens and bathrooms so that it resists mold. If you use silicone, let the silicone dry then you cut it with an exacto knife, and peal off the excess. Try to be careful so you don't cut your counter. You can also use a mixed latex and silicone, that is water cleanup.

Good Luck
