Well, I've had a bucket under the P-trap ever since Monday morning...
haven't had any opportunity to actually do any house repair work.
Pulled it out after I got home from work this PM because I thought it
might have been filling up. IT was bone dry! I guess that means that
all the water was running down the back of the sink from the faucet,
along the bottom to the drain fitting, and then *appeared*
to come from
the outside of the metal drain piece and down the p-trap. I suspect
that it might have been leaking out around where the arm meets the body
more than normal due to the fact that I was using a short piece of
garden hose to fill the mop bucket. (the drain is actually in constant
use, as the condensate drain from the A/C, furnace, and humidifier
drains into it.)
This makes me very happy.
I'll disassemble the faucet saturday AM. If I spend more than an hour
screwing with it, I'll buy a new one.
replace "roosters" with "cox" to reply.
