Sink InstallLeaking drains are common in standard sink repair, yet quickly 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 certain you have a pail positioned to catch water. Shine a flashlight onto the pipelines, and cover a paper towel around each one to determine the location of the leakage. Next, tighten the couplings in the drainpipe with the leak. If this does not fix the problem, try cleaning the pipeline threads and replacing the gasket. To do this, you'll have to detach the sink basket from the basin, using a wrench to loosen up the nuts. Keep the basin in place with a screwdriver or a set of pliers in the crosspiece. Scrub off all the old putty, then insert the brand-new gasket, followed by the sink basket.

Pay special attention to the rubber seal. If you have to change the seal or stopper, it's an easy matter of following the producer's directions. Otherwise, soak the stopper in the cleaning service, reassemble the pivot rod and clevis, and test to see if it's working.
