Bathroom faucet pipes leaking.


Hi everyone,

I recently went to my aunt's house and discovered that the pipes below her bathroom faucet have been leaking for a while, so she cannot use it.

I enclose a few pictures showing the pipes system that was installed by one of her friends about 1 year ago.

I am not particularly handy but I can handle simple repair, and this is simple enough.

What would you advise me to do to fix her problem so that she can use her faucet again.

Thanks in advance,
JB

Not one thing in that picture is worth saving.
None of the drains are right, kinked supply lines, old galvanized piping.
Pop up dragging on the supply line.

Indeed, there is not much worth keeping.

My main issue lies with the pop up not being in line with the P trap.
I wonder what parts I can use to connect the pop up to the P trap, vertically straight. Or do I have to change the P trap as well?

Or can I just change the J, not the whole P trap?

The metal rod on the pop up is to long, just cut it.
With that mess behind the sink I'd just remove that sink and go back to a vanity to cover it all up.

Indeed.
I also thought about changing the sink, but I have a space issue in the bathroom, and I thought it'd be too expensive. But I guess basic sinks or vanity are not so expensive these days.
I'll check further that option.
Thanks for the advice.

And that's for a nice looking one.
They have some as low as $40.00.
