Our kitchen sink always leaks, especially when turning on

Customer Question

Our kitchen sink always leaks, especially when turning on the disposal. Also, it leaks in a few areas, e.g. The hole the faucet is attached, or when the air circulates. Thanks

Can you pinpoint the source of the leak?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
It's leaking from the reverse t tube. What is this tube for?

Are you able to upload a picture of it?

Pls see pictures

Those quick connect fittings seal on o-rings. You likely have one that is torn. Can I see a picture of the faucet too?

I think the water leak is coming from your cartridge. Do you know the brand of your faucet?

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Don't know.
Expert:  WCohn replied 3 months ago.

In that case I'd call a plumber and let them know. If it's the faucet itself that's leaking water will down through the the countertop hole and runn down that hose then drip.

Is there anything else?

How's the leak going?
