    Hello,

    Recently I noticed a leak under the kitchen sink. I managed to locate which pipe was leaking.
    The leak is from the join between two pipes. One pipe goes through the wall to the outside drain (drainage pipe).

    It is a slow leak between the two pipes.

    I initially placed a plastic ice cream container (approx 2 liters) under the leak overnight. In the morning it overflowed !!!

    I then used a large mixing bowl to contain the water under the leak overnight. In the morning it overflowed !!!

    What is causing so much water to leak ??? The sink itself is empty of water and the dishwasher is turned off, there are no dripping taps, so what is the source of the water ? Could it be the boiler ?

    Does anyone know where is the source of this water ?

    I think a photo would help. It could be from the boiler if the condensate pipe connects up and you have the heating on.
