I am experiencing a water leak from some sort of waste trap piece below my bathroom sink. This piece sits directly above the U trap.
Here's a photo.
This trap looks unusual, in that it seems a bit different from most of the wider traps. Any pointers on what the name/make of this piece is, or where what replacement part to look for?
I've unscrewed and detached mostly everything but am having a hell of a time trying to actually remove the popup drain assembly. I've updated my post above to show whats going on. I've tried the pliers trick to stop the pop up flange from moving but no luck so far.
- Am I doing something wrong?
- Should i be trying to unscrew the tail piece mount or the tail piece itself?
- If not, are there any tools/strategies that I may not be using that would help loosen the gridlock?
I feel like I must be doing something wrong. The channel lock pliers I cannot hold fast enough and are stripping the grooves a bit.
Is this the correct strategy?
