LEAKY SINK IN POLLENSA  Empty LEAKY SINK IN POLLENSA

I've just noticed that my sink is leaking, only really because I happened to store some bowls underneath and they've been catching the water as it drained! Looked and it seems to be coming from the waste pipe directly, and I can see it drippung from the mdf that is directly under the sink. The issue is that I can't see anyway of accessing the bit I need to without ripping this bit out which I don't want to do. Has anyone had anything similar happen? How did you fix it? Thankyou so much for any input I'd be very grateful

Hi, I'm guessing you mean the sink in the kitchen area, not the washroom? Before pulling things apart try and work out where the liak is starting from. It may be the seal between the pipe and the bottom of the sink, or it may be the joint between the plastic union under the sink and the flexible pipe that takes the water away. Try drying the area with some kitchen paper then running a little water down, while watching to see where the water leak is.  

The drain pipe is usually attached to the sink by a screw that you can see when looking at the drain hole from above. There is usually a single screw in the middle of the drain that can be unscrewed to release the pipe assembly from the bottom of the sink. Once free it should be easier to repair.

I fixed it! I was being a dumb dumb and not actually looking directly under sink. The waste pipe had come away completely so I screwed it back in and gaffer taped it for good measure. Thanks for your input
