    Hi

    Seem to have a leak from my sink p-trap (blue seal as the screw keeps loosening itself after a few days).
    usual hardware stores seem to sell the p-traps without the threads, mine has the threads on the trap under the blue seal.

    the sc10 mcalpine which I bought

    looks like it expecting threads on the pipe to attach itself to.

    is there some type of converter i can buy to attach the new mcalpine to my pipe? (40mm pipe)

    thanks for any advice...

    cheers

    The leak will return if the pipes under the sink are knocked when taking stuff out, that may have happened in your case.

    Replacement seals are available if yours is damaged.

    Is there a parallel washer above the blue tapered one?
