Unthread that from the pop up and reseal with teflon. Should always seal that joint with teflon.

That chrome tailpiece unscrews out of there. Take it apart and use pipe dope and then put it back together. I think this was mentioned earlier in your thread to check this. Don't put silicone around it as it will still leak.

Sorry Justin I didn't see that you wrote this too. Didn't realize there were 4 pages. But yes you hit it on the head.

thx guys
i did exactly what you told me.
Did not know that this pipe unscrews.
So far no leak anywhere. Crossing fingers!!!

What i also noticed is that the faucet valve for the hot water moves little tighter then before. I had it disconnected with no water for a week as i was searching for the washer. Does it mean it corroded inside as this was a hot water due to lack of contact with water and it being exposed to air?
Can i unscrew that valve and put some vinegar there or something to get rid of corrosion or its not fixable and the valve will fail over time?
