Good day everyone. I got a big big problem and need you guys for suggestion. Just done my renovation work early this year, have been staying nearly 6 month. However lately I discover that my bottom kitchen cabinet is leaking water. Checked the cabinet and found out that the water waste pipe had some small leak. And for god know it has been how long. So I called my ID and ask him to check what wrong with the pipe. My ID came down with his plumber and carpenter to check out the leaking problem. Now the nightmare begin. Plumber claim that the pipe he connected "HDB provided drain pipe" is defect which is not his fault that the water leak. And push all the blame to the HDB contractor. So my wife went down to the service center and find their site supervisor. Unfortunately, the site supervisor doesn't know anything about the waste drain pipe thing and cannot determine whether its their problem or not. So he went off and make a appointment for us the next following day. Since my ID carpenter is around, I asked him about the cabinet. Told the carpenter about my situation about the leak and the water has already contacted the wood. Right now the wood has turn moldy and black. Will it damaged the wood or not . He replied, " Yes the wood is wet but it won't damage the wood all you need is to wipe off the moldy part and dry out the wood it will be fine." I was very shocked to hear this. From what I know once wood contacted with water for certain time, it's as good as damaged. From this point, I got nothing to argue. Plumber claimed that it's not his fault and carpenter said that the wood is fine. So they left. Following day, service center plumber came. I explained to him the situation and told him what my ID plumber said. He laugh off and told me that my ID plumber has done the wrong way to connect the pipe. HDB provided the pipe for the basin BUT they don't do the connection to the drain pipe When my ID plumber fixed the sink pipe to the HDB drain pipe, he DID NOT EVEN GLUE THE INNER PART OF THE PIPE which caused the leak He showed my wife how the leak caused. And he effortless just pull out the pipe and it's seem like it wasn't glue at all. Which looked like a cover cap to the drain pipe. Right now my wife is damm piss off regarding about this matter. I hope you guys can give me some suggestion and help me out. Sibei heart pain Kindly refer to the picture attachment. Maybe you guys can share your drain pipe picture with me and see whether is there any problem with my ID plumber. Any professional advise would be really appreciate.
