    Default Leaking "S" Trap issue

    So I replaced the pipe under my sink and after putting the water on full blast (testing phase), I noticed a small dribbling leak of the left side of the pipe. I have an image of it.

    1. the dribble

    2. where the water ends up going

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance.

    Default leak

    1. That is an illegal "S" trap 2. When you installed the washer you probably put it OVER the bead on the "U" bend instead of against it.

    Suggestion? Yeah, get rid of the S trap and install a P trap with a proper vent. Might want to be sure the washer(s) are installed correctly on the P trap while you are at it.
