    Hi Mark!

    Not exactly faucet related but OK 😉 If the water is coming down the drain pipe then it’s most likely the rubber seal under the metal ring on the drain! You have a little screw in the center of the drain, unscrew it and remove the metal part of the drain and underneath is the rubber ring that probably needs to be replaced!
