Leaking Grey Pipe Issue Under Sink

Postby perkysox » Sat Mar 30, 2019 11:36 am

Hi, Can anyone help as I have grey pipe under my kitchen sink that when I empty my kitchen sink water comes out of the grey pipe on the floor in pic. I presume this hose is to be connected somewhere but not sure where. It's always been lose on the floor so am rather confused. Any help much appreciated.

Simply Build It

Hi, I can't see any pic so this is a guess. Is the pipe about 20mm diameter? It sounds like it may be an old washing machine/dishwasher waste pipe that's been left connected to the plumbing but disconnected from the appliance. In which case, just remove it from the sink plumbing. They are usually a push fit over a dedicated connector on the sink waste. Once removed, plug the connector. When new, they come with a plastic bung but I guess that's not to hand There shouldn't be any pressure on this connector so any means of blocking it will do but I would recommend getting the proper bung as soon as possible.
