Faucets in general operate either with a one handle valve stem or valve stems that uses small pieces of rubber to precent the water flow. In a single handle model this is usually caused by mineral deposits building up and the valve not being able to fully restrict the flow of water. The fix here is usually a new stem. On models that use a two handle system and do have replaceable valve stems one must get a repacement seat from a hadware store and reinstall the stem. In extreme cases the valve body may need to be ground internally and will require a professional. If you do not a have replaceable stems than the only alternative is a new faucet. I hope this assists you and thanks for using Fix Ya.

The stem and washers inside the faucet need to be replaced.
If you Do it yourself the parts typically will cost you less than 20 bucks.
Most plumbers will charge 75 to 100 for this relatively simple Job.
You can order parts directly from the manufacturer, or from a local plumbing supply house.
The faucet may still be under warranty and the parts would be free. Here is ther number for Price pfister.

Testimonial: "As you suggested, the faucet was under warranty and Price Pfister is sending me some parts at no costs. Hopefully, the parts will resolve the issue."
There will be a set screw on back or under cap on top. Remove handle, next use a phillips screw driver to remove the part that holds on to the cartridge. Then a bonnet that unscrews leaving the cartridge easily repaired or replaced. And there you have it.
