Sink RepairLeaking drains prevail in standard sink repair, yet easily handled. The first thing you'll need to do is find where the leak is coming from. To do this, let water range from the faucet into the sink. Make sure you have a bucket placed to capture water. Shine a flashlight onto the pipes, and wrap a paper towel around each one to figure out the place of the leakage. Next, tighten the couplings in the drain with the leak. If this doesn't solve the problem, try cleaning the pipe threads and changing the gasket. To do this, you'll have to separate the sink basket from the basin, utilizing a wrench to loosen up the nuts.
