Thanks for reading this post. On my kitchen sink, the tailpipe and the trap keep coming disconnected, probably because the vibration of the garbage disposal causes the two to vibrate so much that the trap eventually slips off of the tailpipe. Of course, once it's off, it's an awful mess!
So, I'm confused because there are no threads on the tailpipe to screw on the trap's slipnut. It was set up by the original plumber so that the trap just shoves up onto the tailpipe. I guess that's normal, but I don't know because I don't have any plumbing experience.
So what do I do to keep that trap from slipping off? I've shoved it back up several times, but it just keeps slipping off more and more.
Is plumber's putty enough to keep it together? Or should I combine that with duct tape?
Thank you in advance for any advice!
