Some kitchen sink leaks are obvious, while others are hard to find and will drive you crazy as you try to hunt them down. Small leaks located underneath your sink can be some of the hardest to find, but they can still cause a lot of damage. Here are four common causes of leaks under and around your kitchen sink.
- Disposal Damage or Loose Connection
The kitchen sink disposal offers several potential points of failure where seals can fail and come loose. The first one is the flange where the top of the disposal connects to the inside of your sink. The bottom of the unit, where it connects to the main drain, is another connection that can come loose. And if the unit connects to the dishwasher drain, the unit can leak there too.
