    Good morning, I found your forum via Google after searching for some plumbing advice.

    We have recently installed a new sink however struggled with the plumbing part of it.

    I called out a plumber who managed to sort it for us however I was under the sink last night and noticed that he has left one of the pipes blocked with what looks like debris and it is just hanging there.

    From what I can gather, the pipe looks like some sort of waste from the boiler, is it safe to have it blocked like this?

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated

    It looks like it could be the condensate drain pipe, the debris in it is probably a build up from the original sink waste. The pipe may be no longer in use. Try ringing the plumber and asking him.

    I still haven't heard, could the pipe being blocked be dangerous, cause any long lasting damage?

    Depends if it's connected the other end

    Yea if it is and you shouldn't run the boiler

    No if it's not connected
