That looks purdy
I'd hate to tell you the 1 minor code violation so I'll keep my mouth shout.
How'd you get the pipe out?

I am sorry for not responding sooner. My computer crashed shortly after I fixed my kitchen drain pipes so I have been busy trying to get my pc up and running. Needless to say, I am not a computer guru or a plumber!

I extracted the pipe by using a big wrench and twisting slowly (so slow it took days to loosen the @#@!!* - I just worked a little each day) and I was very patient and gentle. I can only attribute my success to some miracle force - I am not that gifted.

I have to ask: what is the violation? Please pretty please tell me. I am a glutton for punishment

you can only have one slip nut past the trap to connect the white stuff to the pipes in the wall. to do it right, you'd need to extend the pipe from the wall with pvc/abs and connect your trap to that, using just the single slip nut. but like eplumber said, it's not a big deal

Thank you for your response. I will likely end up fixing the pipe to get up to code (it drives me insane to not do things right), but it will be awhile before I walk that plank. I am sure when I do, I will be logging back on to this site to beg for help. Until then (or until my work of art starts to leak - whichever occurs first) I will enjoy my kitchen sinks and being able to wash my dishes without having to take a bath at the same time There is just something about taking a bath with dirty dishes that just doesn't work for me...

For future reference (and maybe not to code !).
I was faced with helping someone else with a similar problem, but the previous owner ruined the threads with so a new pipe could not be inserted, I found a no hub adapter that fit over the T in the wall to something that accepted the tail piece. (I think it was 2 inch x1 /1/2).

I'm in desperate need of assistance with a very bad leak under my kitchen sink. The leak is coming from the metal pipe that attaches to the PVC pipe. I took the PVC pipe apart and the metal pipe has a hole in it. It looks like it might be possible to unscrew the metal pipe, but since this is the first time I've ever touched anything plumbing wise, I am afraid to proceed without advice. I can't afford to pay anyone to help me. I have a video and some pictures, I'll see what I can post. I appreciate any help anyone can give. Thank you so much!

Re: Leaking drain pipe under kitchen sink

Welcome to the forum urmy.

It's best to start a new thread of your own instead of piggybacking off a 5 year old thread, you will get better results. Members will see it's an old post and move on.

It will be tricky, but can be done. Stop flushing grease and chemicals down your kitchen sink, your pipes will last longer.
