The townhouse a friend of mine is renting out has a leak around the trap of the kitchen sink.
He is not in the area anymore, so he asked if I could take a look at it. I've had some experience doing minor plumbing work, and am fairly confident I can take care of things when seeing this picture.
The only thing that looks hairy is the buildup where the trap connects to the "adapter" piece. If I can't get remove the buildup, would I have to cut the adapter off of the pipe going into the wall? If so, how would I go about getting the replacement trap and adapter to go to the new, shorter pipe, since it will not be a standard distance away from the trap (assuming there is a standard distance)? Are there special adapters for just this situation?
