Over the course of time, a drain can simply wear out. The closure that holds water in the sink can begin to leak, or the surface of the drain may become corroded or tarnished. It may develop a crack or a compromised seal, causing a leak beneath the sink.
There are several things to consider when choosing a replacement. Each drain is an assembly of components that must be matched to the design of the sink and to the connection of the drain pipe under the sink.
In addition to drains and traps, most kitchen sinks include a garbage disposal which can complicate the replacement process. Working with a professional installer can ensure that the drain functions properly and doesn't leak regardless of its configuration. When replacing a drain, it's a good time to think about upgrading to a new sink or different style of drain or to add or replace a disposal. Discuss these options with your installer.
