Given Alicante’s age, the “P-trap” that drains your kitchen sink may be leaking, or almost corroded through. A number of residents have recently replaced their “P-traps” for this reason. Check your “P-trap” for drips, cracked connections, or other signs of age. You may want to contact a plumber for assistance. Don’t wait until it’s too late!Banker Hill Community Police Officer
