Hi, I presume you mean that the water spout is dripping when the taps are opened, remove the spout (it either unscrews anticlockwise using a tool or pulls up with force) , at the base is a o-ring that needs to be replaced, obtainable from local hardware store.Hope this helps. Don't forget to rate this help.

SOURCE: pop up vessel sink drain

Look underneath the sink and you will find the lever that moves the drain up and down. It is probably stuck.

We have the Kokols Wallmount Bathroom Pedestal Glass Sink Vanity Combo but the p-trap keeps leaking. How do we fix it?


Remove it, (Don't forget water will come out when you uncscrew it!!!) clean it thoroughly, especially the ends, clean and check seating of any rubber washers to make sure they are fitted correctly and not being distorted when the rings are tightened, reseat it with no force (it should sit naturally without having to force it in) and tighten rings. There are lots of videos on youtube showing how. If you cant stop it leaking buy a new trap. It's worth while looking very carefully for exactly where the leak is before you remove the trap, it might be coming from higher up. Repair Leaky Sink Drain Pipe

Just installed a vessel sink and it leaks between the vessel and under sink.


Use silicone to seal the flange and teflon tape on the threads that the drain flange screws onto. make sure that the sink isn't cracked. make sure that you have a washer under the rubber gasket that seals the bottom of the sink and tighten the nut against the washer snuggly.

Installing a vessel sink


Standard Vanity height is approx 34.5". A vessel vanity is approx 31" high. If you cannot remove the legs from your existing vanity then it will have to be replaced or cut down to the correct height. The reason a vessel vanity is lower is because your sink will be approx 3 to 6 inches higher than a standard drop in sink. This may be more work than it is worth. Vessel sinks most often will require a solid surface top, either glass, stone or another type of composite material. The standard laminate vanity top has a particle board substrate which will detiorate quickly at the drain location.

The sink leaks at the bottom of glass sink where it connects to the piping


THE PART YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT IS CALLED DRAIN TAIL PIECE. THE DRAIN YOU CAN REMOVE BY LOSENING THE NUT UNDER THE SINK WHILE SOME ONE HOLDS THE DRAIN INSIDE THE SINK FROM TURNING THE OART KEAKING IS CALLED A SPUD GASKET WHICH SEALS THE DRAIN TO THE SINK

Pegasus Push Button Vessel Sink Drain with overflow


Put plumbers putty around the flange that will be in contact with the sink. When you put it into the hole, try to line up the overflow as good as possible. The nut that goes onto the bottom (tailpiece) has a rubber gasket that will go between the nut & the sink. Adding some plumbers putty here won't hurt. After all is secure, just remove the putty that squeezed out from tightening.
