A couple of connections ( U bend etc. ) from the kitchen sink have had intermittent leaks for a few weeks so today decided to have a more detailed look and fix it.

No chance Sad

Tightened them up as some had come loose, no luck.
Dismantled everything, re-assembled ensuring all the connections were fitting " square" / tightened

Still no luck and leaking even worse now Sad

Will have another go later this evening but come next week time to call in a plumber, probably at a cost of around 60 + per hour ? Sad Sad

if its leaking from the joints you tightened then its got to be nothing more than a poor seal or a washer not in the right place, undo again and use petroleum jelly in the threads and around the washers. PTFE sealing compounds are better if you have them as they don't melt with hot water. Of course the leak may be above it elsewhere Sad

. . . I can repeat it for only 75.00.

Seriously, Stuart's right.
You ought to be able to get some PTFE sealing gear from B&Q or somewhere similar for a lot less than it will cost you to employ a plumber, who'll use the same stuff.
I used to have a roll of PTFE tape which I was gifted by a telephone engineer. You just wrapped a piece around the male part of the thread and did the joint up.
It worked a treat.

some things you really need a professional for, honestly its more cost effective in the long run.

waking up at 4.00 yet again with aching joints. Its only the 2nd time I've had the flu jab in 5 years and both times its left me with constant connective tissue pain - yet the Quack's say it can't be the flu vaccine that causes it!

Seals generally come in two types. 1. a square section ring, and 2. a triangular section compression ring. These you can only buy with their accompanying 40mm white pipework. Leaks are usually caused by these becoming distorted when overtightened. If you are unable to replace the pipework (not prohibitively expensive), take the seals (remember their original placement), place them in boiling water, where they should revert to their original shape. If they are broken - move house or buy new pipes!
