Am I being thick but:-

If the holes are higher than the base of well how does tha water run out?

If the well get full of water doesn't the pressure push the bung closed and act like a why are the bungs there?

Thinking of changing pollen filter and then drilling my own holes if it still leaks...any comments ideas??????
Hi Peter,, if the well was still full of water after your latest show of water, it MUST be where it's coming from, the bungs should PUSH open under the weight of water, not act like a plug in the sink, why they are there is not obvious to me, I considered tearing mine out, if they are not clean and a little sticky, they may stick shut, as for MY drain holes, I did think they were a couple of milli meters above the base of the tray, if yours are highr, then the lip to the holes WILL retain more water, either bending the lip of the hole down (as seems like soft metal) or drilling a hole VERY close to the original drain hole would be MY next move if water is steal holding because of hole not being low enough, be sure to paint some rust protector and then Hammerite on exposed metal edges,
Fingers crossed for you,
