Opened up underneath and the trap was completely clogged with dog fur. Cleaned it all out, put it back together, and everything was leaking. The old metal pipes were so thin they cracked and started leaking. Changed one pipe, another one broke, decided to swap everything (45 minute drive to the hardware store get's frustrating, just replace it all) but the darn thing was still leaking. Was running out of time before the next renter, threw the dice and a half tube of silicone at the remaining joints and it finally stopped leaking... for now. Come spring I will have to take it all back apart, and remove the door and see if I can do a more permanent fix. For now, I removed all of the crap filler above the handle, but below it was too thick to remove, so I added a more closely matched filler and used a touch up pen for furniture. I know it was not an ideal solution, but I wasted so much time with the water leak I didn't have much time to deal with the door. Renting sucks...

They too are thing, but I find they hold up and seal better than the tinfoil ones.
