    The kitchen sink drain pipe has a leak where it is joined to the trap. What is the best way to seal the leak? I've seen those PVC joint rings on Youtube videos. Is this a good way to fix the leak?
    Thank You

    Post a good picture or two of the leaky joint.

    What material is your trap and drain?

    You might just need to tighten the slip nuts.
    Or replace a damaged or crumbling washer.

    All drain lines and the trap are PVC. All connections are glued together. No slip nuts.
