Great video, my experience with the clear traps, they stay clear about 4-5 hrs. Now my clear trap looks black
Mine just started leaking. I am going to fix it myself now thanks to this video.
Put your channel lock pliers on that nut, tighten it up, leak stopped.
The reason it leaks because a dumm person screwed up.
If you put pipe dope on all the cone surfaces they will not leak, NOT on the threads because they don't seal the connections. It will always be water tight. Nice video.
I have good luck putting plumbers putty on the mating surface when they leak. Save a trip to hardware or big box store.
Hot water is a good tip. And testing with sink half full. Re-tighten after test.
You knock the “Handyman Joe” but you have a double P-Trap under your sink. Very Handyman-Joe’ish if you ask me 🙂 Nice breakdown though!
This was very informative! Thank you
Thank You, Thank You, Thank You! My plastic P-trap had come apart over time in my RV with me shoving too much stuff around it in the cupboard. Now I understand how the gaskets work. All I had to do was get the gasket back in place and re-tighten the nut. You're a good teacher!
Thanks so much! I just fixed my pipes under my laundry sink because they were leaking. It was helpful when you said that the pipes needed to be leveled and I didn't need to TIGHTEN THEM WITH A WRENCH; LIKE I HAD. HAHAHA. So I went back untightened them and added a seal/gasket to one of the connections and that did it!
Wish I'd found this earlier today..very clear thank you!
thank you, been dealing with a leak for a year and found out that i was installing that rubber gasket wrong. now it's fixed for real
OK, so I posted the above comment about an hour ago, before fixing the leak. I followed the instructions, and in 5 minutes it no longer leaked. (I will use the newspaper suggestion overnite tho, just to be sure.) I am beyond thrilled to have saved an expensive plumber's fee, about $130+ tax. I have cleaned P traps previously, but they were metal, with rubber seals, so I guess the P trap didn't have to be level, but with PVC it does. You are an excellent teacher! I am a mere woman, and I feel I just took a lesson in "Plumbing 101." A million thanks, and I have subscribed to your channel.
You saved me resorting to an outhouse – thank you!!!
white people always has nice workmanship
My name Jeff
Until about two hours ago, I had a P Trap with the slowest leak on the planet. It was driving me nuts ;o) I had watched your video sometime yesterday, and I woke up in the middle of the night knowing what to do and got started. When you said that the back part doesn't have a gasket and has to fit perfectly flat, that we should "make that guy happy" before dealing with the other connectors, both of which do have gaskets, I was thereby enlightened and able to stop the incredibly-slow-drip madness! I appreciate your help! Thank you jeffostroff!!
My nuts full of water😆
great video but please don't add music, very distracting!
Thank you for the explanation! Things make sense and then become easy to understand and remember… I'll be careful so my P trap won't leak!
Wow! I didn't know a clear P trap existed. Thanks for the explanation …
The music is completely unnecessary
Thanks for the thorough explanation of the seals and joints, etc. Probably one of the best demonstrations on YouTube….
I have never seen a P-trap that is clear I'm only seeing black and white where the heck did you find clear?
im sre you're on chapter 5 on teaching your son how to ride a bike …. sheesh thank got for ffw . . . .
Great video… but why don't they just make the connection not on the curve? Couldn't you leave the bottom part as one piece so no leaks?
what? why are there two different size waste pipes for kitchen and bathroom? FFS
He takes too long to talk was losing me
It's a poor design to begin with where under the sink isn't that much of a problem but hidden like for a tub is another story. Both rubber and plastic washers will disintegrate or crack in five or more years and minor movements doesn't help where near perfect alignment is required. Years of slow leak under a tub will result in major damage (dry rot and termites) if not caught in time. Whenever you change over like a new sink, garbage disposer, or tub, the pipe alignment will be a little off. This is frustrating because the alignment looks pretty good but you have a new leak. Couple of hacks work for me as a DIY. One is a flexible down tube, the long one under the sink. The other is a rubber coupling inserted in that down tube provide just enough flex to get it in alignment. Just hand tight is enough, don't push it with it a big wrench or it will crack. Been there done that. Counter intuitive, more you tight the worse it gets – yelp that's what my plumber said.
When I see a 15 minute video my head thinks No-oooo. I've learned more in the last few minutes than I would've watching shorter ones. Maybe it's a maths thing – thanks for your lesson in excellence. Thank you.
I know this is an old video, so you probably won't answer, but would there be any benefit to wrapping some plumber's tape around the threads at the connection where there's no rubber gasket? I'm gonna be doing this job (replacing the P-Trap) at my elderly Mom's within the next few days, so that's why I'm searching for and watching videos about P-Traps today, and why I'm taking a shot and asking so I have a chance at possibly doing it "right".
My leak is on the other side of the p trap. Any videos on that?
Buying high-quality pipes virtually eliminates this issue. Some plumbers love to save a buck by using cheap stuff that leaks shorty after they're done.
why did you write a review with a product that should never be used, as you stated in your previous vids???? ABS ONLY WITH A CLEAN OUT!!!!!
this is nonsense………….do not do this!
One issue I've had is the gasketless connection's angled piece of plastic getting marred or dented by impact with some sharp edged object making that connection worse. Why is that one particular connection designed without a gasket in the first place? Because of the bend? It's the most confusing thing to me.
I had to watch with subtitles because of music
Why do people play music when talking what's the idea.
Great see your lips moving and crapy tunes .
Great video! Thanks for taking the time out to provide good instructions. It would better help the viewers if you decrease the background music a bit.
Why two traps? One would meet the code, eliminate an extra failure point and save space. Also, if so concerned about that connection, would that hurt to add a bit of teflon tape? Not arguing on anything done in the video, simply trying to learn more.
Good video. Very informative. What size pipe/p-trap is it for a slop sink? How durable is the clear p-trap compared to the pvc p-trap?
Thanks, I learned something today!
CAUTION!! ,in some jurisdictions and Commercial establishments PLASTICS are not allowed and only Copper or Brass are allowed,example; high rise apartments Condo offices and /or MULTIPLE DWELLING UNITS.When in doubt call a Pro or consult the Plumbing code or Bylaw.! edit; speaking from experience , and I thought i knew enough of plumbing, having worked for a licensed Plumber for two years in Toronto, Canada . Thanks for your Channel ,some can use extra plumbing education, new Sub.
Quit with the music…
How do you stop a leak on the gasket end? My leak is on the rubber gasket side.
great explanation, lots of useful extra information other people do not tell you, thanks!
Once hand tight, you stated a quarter turn with a wrench would be OK. I'm thinking half that, one eighth turn, would be more appropriate, but, "hand tight" is very ambiguous and is unique to each person.
Glad to come across this video,did not know the difference in size between bathroom and kitchen pipe. Both mine are in need of replacement. Glad i watched this first!
well I started watching this but the music got to me so I left. Trouble is you might have taught me something but I lost interest in your video and.. Oh look a pretty butterfly….
Very useful. Thank you.
I had to replace some rusted out metal traps, although the drain pipes are ABS. Do you object to use of a bit of teflon pipe dope on the PVC?
Can the tunes
Good info, please don't add music
Why music ?
I've also found that sometimes new P trap parts have residual flashing on the mating surface left over from the casting process. It helps seal the joint if you can remove the flashing with either a knife or fine sanding block. Make sure you don't deform the rest of the mating surface, though.
take a drink every time he says p trap
FIX so if your like me you tried re positioning several times but always got a leak what finally worked was a few careful wraps with teflon tapes around the v shaped valve this is where the sealing is done so far its holding great.
Background music very distracting and unnecessary
I am not a fan of the p-trap kits they always leak. I use the solid pvc traps. Just my opinion
My bathroom is 1.5"
The tecnical name for a p trap is a hydrolic seal
a few wraps of teflon tape on all threaded connections for extra insurance too
That's a illegal set up ,there should only be one trap under the sink. Each trap needs it own vent.
I would use pipe dopeon the seal.
Fill the right side and look at the water in the left trap.
4patriots solar cell commercial guy is fucking insulting.. he says everyone doesnt like gadgets if his gadget is not liked. fuck him. he is a retard.
Soooo the solution is "buy a new trap"?
You didnt show how to remove the p trap
Great video and explanation of how a P trap works and how to fix it. Thanks.
I agree with everyone. No music please. You don't need it.
Honestly I feel bad making a separate comment on this but that music is TERRIBLE
What the hell is up with the music?? Didn't even finish watching the video.
Why don't they make that p-trap one piece…than they never leak
Please get rid of the music and speak up. I cant hear you. I have to go on vision only. I only have my phone in this fixer upper.
I,swear,We need Robots ASP.All the freakin..Men is almost gone Never seen So many lazy Az.. can't figure it out or find out ,Playing games and eat and fk..is all they know how to do .Chine Hurry the freak up just make them in the best material Gezz.
We can’t hear youuuuuuuuuu!
I agree, please don't add music….
Turn off the music please cannot hear you
Jeff, you explained everything really well. Just would make a note to remove the music while you are speaking, as it was hard to hear you.
Your the best Jeff at explaining in detail. Thank you
Whats it mean when you hear your sink dripping not from faucet but coming up from the drain, and the garbage disposal quit working 2 days ago? Also had a plumber from our home warranty policy to fix our upstairs toilet wouldnt flush, he snaked it ,2 days later heard a loud clunck and doesnt flush anymore and we saw water running down downstairs bathroom window?
