Not sure how to fix a leaking drum trap? Well, neither was this guy. He did however find a way to direct the leak to a drain, in the basement shower below. Some string, a funnel and some old garden hose and we're good.
During home inspections I frequently come abross several unique ways to stop leaks from coating with silicone or epoxy, hanging buckets under them and such. It's really best to have the leak properly resolved. Who wants to be exposed to whatever is leaking out of this thing.
Special thanks go out to Trent Martin over at Mr Rooter Plumbing for sharing this photo.
