This "situation" needs a phone call to the company's customer service department.
    By tech. info, I was looking for dimension specs, install instructions....NOTHING there

    Yeah did that - it comes right out those two holes.
    I already told him to do that. He said he did and the water came out of those two holes, but that he would just mop up any water that "spilled" out of them from overflowing.

    Is it possible that the holes are close enough to the drain opening that when pop-up assembly is installed, the nut, washer, and rubber gasket will cover/seal the "dime" size openings..... and then overflow will flow into holes in side of popup assy. Your use of "dime size" sounds pretty big...

    How about a picture??
