I've got a sink basin installed under granite that looks kindof like this:
All around the outside of the sink sandwiched between the basin and the granite is a rubber gasket that has started to fail (break apart and deteriorate) in some areas. I'm handy enough to remove the basin and put a new gasket around it (which I assume is custom and came with the sink but I could probably figure something out), however I am afraid of causing more problems - namely, that the granite might crack from the stress.
Is it ok for me to caulk with clear silicon around the basin? Or should the sink really be removed?
