not sure why i didn't think of using tape. i'll kick myself in the nards if it's that easy. probably was getting so frustrated after dealing with the new drain assembly also leaking. and the wife had to say this bathroom reno was going to be easy!!! lmao
couple other things to try. Behind the wall, if you have access, the PVC wast pipe might be brace or clamped. Loosen that and you might have more flexibility where you tighten the joint.
Otherwise try some sealant in the leaky joint. Did you use teflon tape? that should work. Try more wraps of the tape. Otherwise try another sealant.
Loosen all fittings tighten up the one that is leaking then the one going through the wall then the one at the sink last see if that dosent let them roll better into place theres no give on the seal thats leaking as it is formed on the pipe.
Looking for some help with a slight drip/leak coming from the bathroom drain. replaced the vanity this weekend and it appears the drain is about 1/8" off from the original. there's a slight drip coming from where the waste arm/stub out meets the J bend.
not my pic but this is where the drip is coming from.
any recommendations to fix this?? the vanity is level but the J-bend pipe is cockeyed and wont sit flush into the slip nut. I've tried multiple drain assemblies and took this thing about far too many times lol
Wax is fine if the flange is below the finished floor you'll need 2 one plain to go on the flange one with the plastic shoot to stack on the first one. The one thing with wax is you get one shot you can't remove the toilet and reset it.
Really a very reasonable price BA. You'd have to search a bit to find a plumber who would do it cash on the side for that price.
Many commercial shops have a 4 hour minimum at $110 to $130 per hour.
The trades are looking for younger guys. Most are hurting for skilled tradesmen. There is a decent living to be made. Journeyman plumbers, HVAC, and Master Electricians are making around $38 per hour on the check, and another $15 per hour in benefits.
