We get quite a few customers that have leaking water show up under the sink and think it is the faucet or p-trap. Many don’t think that it can be the actual sink well if it is a steel sink the chances are very good that you have a leaking bathroom sink. In new construction homes the builder tries to cut costs with everything if he can save a few dollars hear and there it can save him thousands in a housing development. So to cut costs many builders will install steel sinks. The problem with these sinks is not the sinks themselves but the construction of them the overflow which is the little hole on the back of the sink that takes the water if it is being overfilled to prevent overflowing is held together underneath with just silicone caulk over the years or even months it can separate from the steel sink causing a massive leak under your sink when the sink is draining. The only way to fix this is to replace the sink. If you replace the sink we at Drain Genie Plumbing Services suggest going with a porcelain sink the overflow is built into the actual sink and will not leak down the road. The cost of a porcelain sink is not much more than the steel sink so it is a good idea to spend a little bit extra and have a sink that will last you many years down the road.
