We recently had a problem at our martial arts school. The buidling owners shut off the water for two days looking for a leak. During that time, one of our students turned the sink knob on and left it on. The drain was open, but the water cut back on when no one was around and the school flooded.
My question is given that it wasn't clogged or stopped up, shouldn't the drain have been able to handle the water coming out, even if the spigots were all the way open?
Also, can someone direct me to a link that has a full explaination of the physics behind it--i.e. a rate of water flow for most sinks and the drain rate capacity?
