Simply Build It

Hi wes1980
If the leak is from the white pipe the join will need reforming using solvent cement.
If it is leaking where the white pipe goes into the grey collar you will probably need a new adaptor.
If it is from the grey collar this will need resealing to the brown pipe.
You may get away with using silicone sealant on the offending join.
