Hi Guys, i know this is a heating website but got a quick question on a leak that is coming from the stopper valve connection of my bath room sink. Its made of some cheap plastic part that loosens when water runs for a while then starts to leak. I attached a picture, i plan on taking it to the plumbing supply store tomorrow. Other than the small black pipe and a new stopper piece that goes into the pipe, do I need anything else? Plan to replace with metal pipe. Thanks for the help.
i think that you can tighten that by hand .
the part is not very spendy . to replace,
there is a small plastic ring that allows the travel of the stopper under the sink , sometimes you can tighten them by hand then get a hold of the chrome clip with holes in it and adjust the travel on the push pull rod on the faucet,
sometimes there is a lock nut on that rod instead it is like a key looking deal and once you twist it open it can be re positioned and re tightened.
hope you are lucky the first time : )
