Popup Drain, is it really suppose to be like this?






So it just so happens that my vanity and vanity top comes from Home Depot. But my faucet comes from Rona, although I originally thought plumbing parts are standardized I am not so sure anymore. When I went to install this (I kind of just placed it like that in the picture) But the lift rod only fits in a slant (almost a 60 degree angle). Now to my knowledge, I am quite sure that is suppose to be perpendicular to the faucet and vanity top and if you even tried to attach it to the rest it will force the rest of the popup drain below to be slanted. Is this normal? I was actually thinking of going to Home Depot tomorrow and pick up look at some other faucets to see if they're all like that.

I'm not sure if it's suppose to be or not, but have seen ones that go in at an angle. The ball joint that it attaches to for the stopper still seems to work the same...

Hmm well if it works the same then i guess no prob then! Well should I use plumber's putty or silicon to seal the flange into the sink? (The instructions refer to both) ?

I used plumbers putty, but have been recommended to use silicon by some (not all) plumbers. I've never found a problem with putty and like the way it's easier to take apart if you need to repair anything. I also used plumbers grease on the ball joint that works the stopper.

Yes some stoppers are in a slant as you show.
