Kitchen Sink waste woes and what do I need to fix

Postby iandb0812 » Fri Jul 08, 2016 12:39 pm


Have an on going issue with our kitchen sink, occasionally have found the cupboard wet and have already lost the shelf and am 99.9% it's down to the moron we brought the house from.

Pic shows the waste pipes. Far right looking at it is the sink and the other bit is a small sink???? between the main sink and draining board. ... s.jpg?dl=0

Yesterday the sink would not drain, but eventually did so at a snails pace, I found water seeping out thought the joins on the downpipe from the small sink bit.

The cable ties are there as a result of a previous incident when it fell down, possibly to much weight on it from all the shite in the cupboard.

Think that's the problem not draining,the joints will drip when blocked,try 'one shot' from a plumbers merchant, put it in a night and check in the morning
