basement sink

I have an old laundry sink in the basement.I think its ceramic it has a right and a left side. On the right side there is a PVC pipe coming from the furnice and to the sink. I never see anything coming out of the pipe but the right side of the sink seems to be rotting away.

Any idea on whats going on here.

RE: basement sink

it most likely handles the evaporation from the air conditioning, or the excess water from the humidifier.

Thanks, would that have anything to do with the it eroding away? The bottom of the sink where it drains seems to be braking down.

"...evaporation from the air conditioning,..."

Condensation maybe?

RE: basement sink

I found out what my PVC line from the Hot Water heater is for - when I accidently extinguished the pilot light.

The resulting condensation quickly filled the overflow pan.

This may not have anything at all to do with your situation.
