Attempt to Fix the Sink?

DH is out of town all week, and the pipe under the sink is leaking at one of the joints. (So bad that I can't even use my sink!!) I think my 3yo and I are going to attempt to fix it. I told him he had to help me with "man work" and he laughed and ran away. LOL

Worst case I can call a plumber if it doesn't work, right? I'm thinking silicone and plumbers tape. hehe

  • Metal or plastic pipe under the sink?

  • Plastic pipes.

    I sorta tried to fix a clog yesterday with the toilet plunger. Oops.

  • Plungers can be used on sinks, even ones with garbage disposals. If it is clogged, you may just have to empty out the p-trap (or s-trap depending on your pipes). It's really easy.
