Sink Installation ServicesDripping drains are common in fundamental sink repair, yet easily dealt with. The very first thing you'll have to do is discover where the leak is coming from. To do this, let water run from the faucet into the sink. Make certain you have a container positioned to catch water. Shine a flashlight onto the pipes, and wrap a paper towel around each one to figure out the location of the leak. Next, tighten up the couplings in the drainpipe with the leakage. If this does not solve the problem, try cleaning up the pipeline threads and changing the gasket. To do this, you'll have to remove the sink basket from the basin, utilizing a wrench to loosen the nuts. Keep the basin in place with a screwdriver or a set of pliers in the crosspiece. Scrub off all of the old putty, then insert the new gasket, followed by the sink basket.

Lastly, find a porcelain touch-up paint that finest matches your sink's color and use to the repaired area.
