  3. First thing would be tighten up clockwise.

    The top one looks as if it's not home.

    Try to pull the pipe and the fittings together.

    Its the bottom one on the plastic end, ive tightened but still dripping slightly and i cant get in to pull together, looks like im going to have to take it off
     

  5. Thats not such a bad idea. drain take apart and clean. would be good to replace with another John Guest fitting.

    be sure to check the insert is in place.

    and that the plastic pipe hasn’t been scored where the “O” ring sits
     

  7. I sometimes give a lite rub down if unsure...
    It's what I like about buteline, as it seals from the inside of the pipe.
