Most dishwashers drain into the garbage disposal or sink drain. If you leave a lot of food on the dishes, it could cause a backup in either the drain or the garbage disposal, depending on your setup. Try running the garbage disposal or using a product like liquid plumber or drano to clear it.

Oliveri mixer taps


turn off the hot and cold water supply, place a container under the sink where the hose meets the Sink mixer.
release the pressure from the tap by opening the tap to let the water out.
use a suitable tool to undo the flexible hose from the underside of the tap, there should be a small "O" ring on it which you will have to replace as the "O" ring is possibly the cause of the leak.

My drain pipe has a leak


Tighten all connections first and see if you have a problem. If you still have the leak, then dry the piping under the sink (using a towel) from the sink downwards. Then fill the sink with water and then get under the sink and open the drain. Use a flashlight and feel for moisture with your hands. Start at the bottom of the leak and work your way upwards until you find the area where the leak is occurring. Often leaks appear to be at the bottom of the pipe but the leak can occur as high as the sink drain seal. Be sure to check the back of the piping for leaks. Once you find the leak, you can then determine the course of action to repair the leak.

Leak from bathroom sink behind the wall


hello , usually there will be water supply lines coming in from behind the wall area and if it isnt leaking at the supply valve it self then you may need to open up the wall area behind the sink and find out what is leaking it depends on what type of pipe is used most likely you have cooper tubing and sometimes these tubes after a while may leak or form small holes or it may be a leak at a soldered joint remeber there are 2 lines one for hot one for cold and you can turn the off by shuting off your water at the main valve then repair the leaking area.

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

How To Connect Sinks Drain


No matter what type of sink you purchase, the drain and water-supply connections are generally installed in the same way. Hand-tighten a female adapter onto the drain stub-out at the wall. Slide slip nuts onto the drain arm and the sink's tailpiece. Fit a P-trap in place and tighten the slip nuts by hand. Connect flexible water-supply tubes onto the faucet's tailpieces, and route them to the shut-off valves. Tighten coupling nuts with an adjustable wrench. Remove the faucet aerator, turn on the water, check for leaks at the shutoff valves, and then turn on the faucet to check for leaks in the drain assembly. Replace the aerator.
