Is it better to use silicone or plumbers putty?

Plumber’s putty is one of the basics tools in a plumber’s tool bag. Also, silicone is not as easy you work with and is not as dense as plumber’s putty, so it’s not as good at filling wide gaps, and plumbers don’t need time to dry just like caulk does.

Should I use plumbers putty with a rubber gasket?

Increasingly, I’m finding that plumber’s putty is not recommended for sink drains, especially if it has its own rubber gasket. In places where the manufacturer does not supply a gasket (and the flange is not metal) they suggest silicone caulk. Be sure to read the directions for your drain assembly! Not unless it leaks.
