Depending on where the leak is and how bad it is, there are a few different methods available. On pipes under the sink, if they leak at the joints, clean the area with Oatey Cleaner for use with pvc, bpvc or abs plastic pipe. Then apply Oatey pvc glue liberally around the joint. I've had good luck in using fiberglass tape and epoxy. Clean and scuff the repair area thoroughly first. The shower may well be the toughest of the leaks to repair. Most showers and tubs didn't have a dedicated access to the plumbing. If the piping is plastic, you may be able to glue it, after locating the leak...if it's metal pipe, you may be better off calling someone. You could expect to pay in the $100-$300 range if it's something not too involved.

I had the same problem. In my case we ended up replacing the sink and the faucets, because it was caused by pipe freezing(even if you have drained the pipes). As for the black/grey tanks, there is a product that will seal them. It is a 2 part epoxy product that is sold at any rv store. Not the easy way, but you will not have to touch it again.
