Drain Stopper Leak (4 Posts)
Drain Stopper LeakQuick Question onBethroom Sink Leak
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. I tried to tighten it but it just pops and gets loose. Thanks for the help.
nut@gasketI would replace the sink drain and the piece rite below the drain it is a plastic nut and a nylon gasket in there that to me seems to also be your problem. make sure you get the gasket that adapts to 1.25 instead to 1.5.
Did you put some kind of drain cleaner in there some products will heat up where they can melt that plastic.if you put in to much. good luck
drain stopper leakIt sounds like the nut that holds the pop-up (stopper) was cross threaded when you run hot water down the drain it expands and leaks replace with brass and your problem should be solved Delta makes a nice one Be prepared to pay for it Good Luck Marty the Plumber
new brass pipeThanks for the reply guys, just one question I went to plumbing supply store and was sold a brass piece. The only thing is when I installed it it started to leak from right under the stopper connection. The plastic one was one piece pipe. I put teflon tape and hand tightened it. So far it's holding up. Can anyone direct me to a brass pipe that has the stopper connection ps part of the pipe as one pipe. A link would be helpful thanks
