Leaking trap at drain stubout
Posted by David Shores on November 09, 19100 at 23:31:45:
I installed a new kitchen sink trap which resolved a leak caused by a gaping hole in the trap bend, however I was totally unable to remove the slip nut from the drain stubout. I was able to pull the old trap arm pipe out because it wasn't flanged and I was able to slide the new trap arm into the stubout, but it leaks. I suspect the proper solution is to replace the old slip nut with a new slip nut and washer, however I think the odds of getting that slip nut off without destroying the stubout are slim. Suggestions? These are brass pipes and fittings.
