Plumber's Putty around sink flange
Mine still has a little coming out around the the flange after a week, seemed to be settling down though.
I think the putty is under pressure, eventually when enough of it comes out it should stop?
Also when I run hot water to heat up the flange area, seems to soften the putty and squeeze more out. (maybe you can try this and report back, my faucet isn't hooked up right now)
Flange is tight and I think the putty is still moving around to fill the voids.
Bob, should we loosen the screws, would that cause a leak now?
