Sink Drain Tail & Trap Repair


Another plumbing issue. Kitchen sink was leaking from a glued/solvent weld trap. It's a double basin sink so I cut the whole trap off at the wall. The trap is completely clogged. Also, the drain in the wall is completely clogged. I dug out as much crap as I could but there is still a lot in there and who knows how much after the elbow inside the wall. Any way to clean this out? Flush it thru with water from a hose Maybe?

Also, the metal tailpiece from the one sink appears to have broken. Not sure what i need to get to replace that. Thanks for the help.

PS I already went out an bought 1.5 pipe to glue together for the trap.

This will help with the basket. You just need a new tail piece.

Re: Sink Drain Tail & Trap Repair


I wouldn't be flushing with a garden hose if its that clogged. Would most likely get a face full of nasty.

I would try a snake first to see how bad the clogged is packed in.

Re: Sink Drain Tail & Trap Repair


Made a bigger mess for yourself by cutting off that line so close to the wall.
Should have left about 2" sticking out to glue on a trap adapter.

Loose all that old chrome pipe and use all PVC.
About a $15.00 fix to replace it all.
Behind that wall is likely a tee, make sure when snaking it out the snake goes down not up.

Thanks. Can't see from the picture but the drain pipe is sticking out of the wall a good 2 inches. There was a coupler right where I cut so didn't have a choice.

What you linked will attach right to the drain basket?

Re: Sink Drain Tail & Trap Repair


You need a kit like this.
https://www.rona.ca/en/double-sink-i...on-kit-1236078
The link that Joe linked to was the piece that goes on the end of the pipe coming out of the wall. If you have black ABS, then buy that part in ABS so there is no question on glue and that would be the only piece that gets glues.
Next time you have this problem You can just unscrew everything.

Re: Sink Drain Tail & Trap Repair


Rent a 3/8 cable to clean the drain. Then purchase:
an end outlet continuous waste kit,
1.5" ptrap
1.5" trap adapter.
Also get a flanged DW tailpiece to replace your existing one.
Also grab a double end flange tailpiece just for giggles- might need it.
You'll need glue and primer for the trap adapter too
All this will be plastic parts and compression nuts

Good luck

Got some pipe and have 2 questions.

You can see in my picture that on that right drain, the DW line connects at the "back". On the new telescoping continuous drain kit, the DW drain connection is on the side and I have a pretty tight clearance. DW line will have to make a tight 90 to connect. Any issues with that?

Also, new sink drain tail pieces are flanged. Do i need washers between those connections given the flange?

So here's what I did - cut a new hole in side of cabinet in order to move DW drain line to line up with connector on drain pipe. Filled both sinks up half way and dumped them - no leaks. I also have no washers between drain tails connecting to sink baskets. That ok? Guess so if it isn't leaking.
