I replaced a sink, the drain pipe is old and I replaced it with new ppve pipe, The problem is where the old pipe meets the new, it leaks, I calked around where the pipe meets the wall,I have a feeling this is not going to work, The question I have is if this doesn't work, what can i do??? Can I fish a smaller flexable pipe down the drain pipe??

It will depend on how you replaced the pipe. If you installed a new pvc male adapter into the threaded pipe coming out of the wall, or if you installed a threaded female on the male pipe coming out of the wall.

Personally, I remove the nipple coming out of the wall, glue a male adapter on the end of the pvc pipe, then use teflon pipe dope and screw it into the threaded tee. Then I glue on my trap adapter and attach my trap.

Another way is to use an inch and one half mission coupling to compress right onto the steel pipe and the pvc pipe. This is a very easy way to connect to the pipe.

Don't know what you have under the sink but I hope this helps.

Good Luck

is it a slip joint from your p-trap piping into the wall?

Common problem, and why current code doesn't allow anymore.
