Eliminating the Leak.

Before you attack any leaky pipe in your Seattle area kitchen, examine the pipes underneath the sink to identify the culprit.  From the sink drain, the tailpipe leads into a P-trap; a pipe that resembles a "J." The P-trap leads into another pipe, which dumps into the waste line for the house.  If you're not sure which pipe leaks, you may have to replace them all.

Here are some of the steps in the replacement process –

1.  Place a bucket beneath the leaky pipes.
2.  Lay out the new pipes to see how they fit together.
3.  Start from the top and work your way down.
4.  Detach the large nut that secures the P-trap.
5.  Detach the other end and dump the contents into the bucket.

And on and on it goes.  Or just call Shawn Allen to do all of the bending and stretching and to do the job right the first time…guaranteed!  Shawn is known throughout the Snohomish and Seattle area as the go-to guy for plumbing repairs of all types.  Visit his website at plumbersnohomish.com then call (425) 367-4744.
