I took apart my bathroom sink pipes to declog and clean

Customer Question

Hi! I took apart my bathroom sink pipes to declog and clean them, and when I reassembled them, I have a leak. its above the U shaped part, where there is a rubber stopper (type of thing) attached to the part that actually fits through the hole in the sink and holds the stopper. i hope that makes sense to a pro! suggestions?
