A kitchen waste assembly keeps sewage gases from rising into your kitchen through the sink. Replace the waste assembly on your sink with the help of this free video presented by a professional and experienced plumber.
I'm Terry with Towers Murray Plumbing, Murray, Utah. We're going to show you how to replace the drain assembly under your kitchen sink, typically for a double-walled kitchen sink. First thing you'll need is a bucket to catch some water and a pair of water pump or channel lock pliers. First thing you want to do is remove your P-trap. You will get a little bit of water out of this P-trap; that's what the bucket's for. Remove both slip joint knots; give a little bit of pull on the P-trap, it should come right out. Next thing is we'll move up to the slip joint knots right above the T. Remove one side, then the other side and your drain assembly is ready to come out. And as you can see, mine fell out, they don't always come off quite that easy. Make sure you take your components with you to the supply house so you can match them up. You've got the T, you've got a little bit of an extension and your waste arm. And at that point, you're ready to reinstall.
