Hi, this is Nicholas Iarocci, The Home Source Guy, president and owner of Source Development, Inc., a residential and commercial construction company in Garnerville, New York and this is how to replace a leaking sink P trap. The trap serves a multitude of purposes one of which is to trap sediment at the bottom of the trap and after time it does get clogged so what you want to do is actually disconnect it and empty it out. On our sink if it is backed up you've got water accumulating all the way up here not to mention whatever is in the sink. So depending on how much water is there, essentially you're going to take a bucket, put it under your trap here and this is the P trap, you're going to remove the retaining nuts and if it is under pressure you're going to start seeing water immediately start to exit as you are loosening up the nuts. So there's two nuts on the P trap here. You'd remove the P trap, empty the P trap out and then reinstall. We're going to reattach our P trap. And that was how to replace a leaking sink P trap. This is Nicholas Iarocci, The Home Source Guy, president and owner of Source Development, Inc., a residential and commercial construction company in Garnerville, New York helping you build a better life.
