    I have an inset sink. I have noticed a large amount of water in the cupboard underneath. Inspection showed that the overflow pipe was disconnected from the sink.

    However, and this is my question, this is just a black corrugated tube that seems to slot over the outlet from the sink - it has no connector and is very loose if just "pushed" over the outlet - in fact it won't stay on the outlet.

    Am I missing a connector and if not how do I make this stay on the overflow to stop the leak of water??

    Thanks,

    Sue
