I think the "dome" unscrews, may need cleaning out to make a proper seal.

Is the water leaking down the drain or out of the bowl onto the worktop.

If its leaking down the drain, the washer is gone, plug unscrews. Its a weird washer and not available independently but the whole waste unit was available from AS for £14.94 inc vat last Feb. How do I know.........

Can I ask what you think is impractical about the sink, it works very well for us.

Pete, I think the sink is "OK", it looks nice and modern and works fine as a receptacle to hold water.
I personally would prefer a sink that is not so thin and flexible, without a sharp edge on the top - but my biggest beef is it sits on a nice large cupboard that could house a nice, well designed basin where the over-splash of water runs back into the bowl and doesn't flood the top of the cupboard and has to be cleaned up after a simple wash....
Ive already moved the soap holder because I hit my head on it every time I swill my face....
Maybe Im washing my face too well, or doing it wrong....please enlighten me of where Ive been going wrong the last 55 years?...Les

Yes, by design only for the purpose of washing hands and brushing teeth despite occasionally your mouth full of toothpaste saliva readily running down your hand and missing the bowl to drip onto cabinet and even the carpet. For us, other bathing will be by means of the shower. Still the mirror behind with the integrated blue LED lights makes the overall setup very chique. No problem really as just an observation. smile!

No "real" problem for us either - just always seeking perfection.
I was going to add that the van itself is a great van - but Ive just taken it back this morning with a couple of potentially serious faults...never mind eh? puts the sink thing into perspective.
