    Am currently trying ensure the outflow is not blocked by pouring soda crystals in hot water down, my theory is that a blockage built up in past & overflown the joint, as it shouldn't be leaking at all as inclined at decent angle enough.

    The vertical pipe diameter is 53mm where the horizontal in flow is 35mm dia.

    Remove the pipe from the trap on the other side of the wall that will allow you to remove the pipe entering the middle of the tee then see if the vent pipe will twist out of the top of the tee if not cut a few inches above the tee ...renew as required adding a slip coupling to the vent pipe then just work back to the trap ......get all your fittings and pipes before attempting this straight forward repair......alternatively get a plumber in....regards Turnpin
