Leaky Bathroom Drains

Sink InstallLeaking drains are common in standard sink repair work, yet easily handled. The very first thing you'll need to do is discover where the leak is coming from. To do this, let water run from the faucet into the sink. Ensure you have a pail placed to capture water.

If this does not fix the issue, attempt cleaning the pipe threads and replacing the gasket. To do this, you'll need to separate the sink basket from the basin, utilizing a wrench to loosen the nuts. Keep the basin in location with a screwdriver or a set of pliers in the crosspiece. Scrub off all the old putty, then place the new gasket, followed by the sink basket.
