A friend has a tenant aand recently I went to my friend's aid over a leak.

The wall mounted sink was leaking water it was more of a drip from two small holes located under the sink. I believed the tenant left the water running that filled up the sink which must have overflowed and I thought that the drip from these holes was residual water. Does anyone agree with my reasonning? thanks

Hole on the bottom of a sink? one hole is normally the outlet

The holes near the top are for overflow and is the drain is blocked or sluggish then the water will rise about the "over flow" and reach the flood level rim (top of sink)

The PO waste outlet on a basin has holes in it so if the stopper / pop up is in place and the water is left on hopefully the over flow holes will prevent a flood BUT in reality they seldom are sized properly
