I discovered a leak under my bathroom sink. There are two sinks in the bathroom with the same plumbing set up and only the one side is leaking. The water is coming from the marvel connector on the pipe coming out of the wall. The connector is 1-1/2 in.
There are just bare threads on this connector - no nut or anything... Is that even a viable setup or did someone cut corners when installing this? The red arrow shows where the water is leaking from.
Does this seem like an easy fix? I've noticed a bad smell coming from the pipes once in a while and that's leading me to question the entire setup. I'm wondering whether I can just slip a nut on there or if I'll need to replace the whole P trap.
Any tips or guidance would be much appreciated.
