    This type of faucet is called a single lever, and they been around for years. I understand it is dripping but it is very hard to explain how to repair it without seeing the faucet. Common one's are Delta, Moen, American Standard. All have different repair replacements. Some easy and some difficult. If your not sure call a Pro!

Take it apart and take the parts to the plumbing supply and match them up. If you cannot live with the drip would you not replace it anyway if you cannot repair it?

Air lock in hot water tap in kitchen. tap was left running, how do we fix?


connect a hose from the cold tap to the hot and turn on hot tap then turn on cold tap slowly and watch for air bubbles in hot tank header if you have one, but 30 seconds should be enough. turn both taps off then try hot tap for flow, it should have cleared the air lock. You have not stated what type of system you have or if it is a pressurised system. my fix is for the old type copper cylinder and header tank system and not for a pressurised system that are mains pressure fed..

If it has a single valve in the center you have gotton dirt in the valve and this is stopping the water from flowing, it is notto diffiuclt to fix if you know how to turn the water off let me know and I will tell you how to take it apart and clean it.
