  • First, Remove the trap and clear it out.
  • Check that the waste pipe is aligned properly.
  • Next, tighten any connector pipes clockwise.


  • You can find any tools and equipment that you will need at any home hardware store, including B&Q, Homebase, Wickes, and local independent stores. Keep receipts for reimbursement.
