Hello everyone,

I have a leak under my kitchen sink. It seems like it is coming from the black plastic part and is dripping down the black and silver hoses. The black hose is the pull out faucet/ sink sprayer. What is this black piece called? Is this an easy fix? Thank you for reading.

If you have a pull out faucet, then I would recommend pulling the spray head out and looking to see if it's leaking where the hose threads on. Often, over time that connection gets loose. If it's dripping there, snug it up. It might be that easy.
