There might be water in your kitchen sink, garbage disposal or kitchen tap. Water can also erupt from different places.
ESTABLISHING A BASELINE
You need to prepare the area and create a baseline before you can diagnose any serious problems. Take all your items out of the sink. To reach the sink basin, you’ll need to reach under the cabinet. This will tell you where the water is coming form.
THE FLOW TEST
After drying everything, check the drain pipes. If slip joints aren’t tightened or loose, leakage could occur. Begin at each connection between pipes/disposal/sink basins. Waiting can make it difficult to find the source of water.
THE BASIN TEST
You should stress-test your drain pipes if regular flow tests have not shown any obstructions. After the basins have filled, remove the stoppers. Disconnect the dishwasher when there is no food left. The water from the dishwasher will likely be emptied into the garbage disposal via a black or white pipe.
THE FAUCET STRESS TEST
The source of the leak may not be found after draining the basin and inspecting for any leaks. Take out your flashlight to check the shutoff valves and the supply lines. Test the faucet thoroughly. Not all faucets have a leak.
This could indicate intermittent leakage, if there are no tests. Use two to three baking trays for the plumbing under the sink. Rubber tray options are also available. A water alarm can be purchased. The water alarm detects moisture and sounds an alarm.
