I`m ready to damn scream here. I replaced the p-trap for my kitchen sink.
The old one was brass and had a hole in it. The drain side is a brass pipe.
I replaced the trap with a black plastic one (abs?) The side going to the
basket strainer is fine, no leaks. But the side going to drain just keeps
on dripping no matter how tight I turn it. I was told i did not need a
washer/gasket in it, but i tried it both ways, and both ways drip. Should I
cut the threads off the brass pipe and put some kind of compression fitting
on? Thanks for all help. I`m afraid i will crack the plastic if i keep on
cranking on it.
Gotta agree with Jim, Took me a while to get used to those squishy
couplers but they save a whole load of effort. Bought one of the kind
he mentioned from HD last Sunday, was about $5.40 if I recall.
