Hello Everyone,

I just bought a home a couple of months back. I am in experienced and need some help. I have a vanity sink as show in the attached pic. Two of them actually and both are leaking. In the attached pic, you can see water leaking from the right hand bottom corner. It's just small drops of water. A towel under the vanity would get wet in a couple of days.

I don't know the cause of the issue. I have seen the faucet leak a few drops of water when I observed it for a few mins. But I don't see it leak all the time. I have seen a very small pool of water under the pipe at the bottom. But it's so small. I don't feel that is related to this. But then again, I have no clue what I am working with. When I move the sink a bit I see the table(on which the sink sits) has water on it.

I just spent a lot of money buying the house and don't have much money left to spend on a major repair. I am hoping this is something that can be fixed vs buying new vanities. I have a Home warranty. But the home warranty will only take care of leaks under the pipe at the bottom and the faucet. They don't fix sinks I believe.

Please please advise on what should I do.

BEfore you can do ANYTHING, you need to know where the leak is coming from, and that should be obvious if you just keep watching to see when it drips.

Place a small bowl or bucket under the plumbing under the sink and check for leaks, try to determine where it starts.

Home warranties are not worth the paper their written on. You pay a certain amount for each call (used to be $50), they send in a plumber who usually solve the problem for 31 days (since his warranty is for 30 days), and when you call again, it's another $50.

If your warranty is with American Home Shield - good luck to you, they had many class action suits for toying with customers.

Hey, wait a minute.

This is awkward, but...
