Dallas Sink Drain Repair & Installation
Sink drain repair can be done with some basic plumbing knowledge and the right plumbing tools. For the first step in doing basic sink drain repair, turn off the water with the cutoff valves below the sink to prevent water from flowing onto the floor while attempting to do the plumbing.
Feel around the joints of the sink drain to find the source of the leak which is usually around the connections of two pipes so there are only a couple different joints to check.
Secure the joint with a wrench after tightening it by hand. Do not overtighten for it can cause damage to the pipes and loosen the joint if you do.
Turn on the tap to check if leak persists. If it does, replace the rubber washers between the joints. The rubber washer used to secure the pipes together may have worn down over time. A packet of washers of all sizes costs only a few dollars at any home improvement store.
Examine pipes for rust which signifies the need for replacement of pipes. Make sure you are buying the correct sink drain repair part or accessory by taking the pipe to the store if you are not sure of the size.
