Hi all,

Had some plumbing work done recently under the kitchen sink. The plastic pipes were changed but we have a small leak now under the area shown in the attached pic. Checking the blue cap on the end of the yellow elbow in pic it's cracked. So I'm guessing that's where the leak is coming from. What is that blue cap/plug called and can I buy one separately? Was looking on screwfix but couldn't find any that looked like that.

Thanks

Take off the yellow connector and put something like this on the waste pipe.

Take the old one with you to check the size.

As said above.
The blue cap looks like a bodge just something that fitted the end.

From the link above I would say you need the 3/4 MacAlpin one under it
