Try unscrewing the aerator and cleaning the screen that you'll find there. If that doesn't work then you should check the pressure under the sink by removing the cold water hose from the cutoff valve (turn it off 1st!). If the pressure there is good then try removing and cleaning the cartridge by soaking it overnight in white vinegar or consider replacing the whole faucet if it's old. You can also call Blanco and see what they'll do for you as it has a "Limited Lifetime Warranty." If the pressure at the cutoff is low it's time to call a plumber!

SOURCE: new Faucet drips for several seconds after it is

some of these new faucets are "soft off" which means the will drip or run for a second or 2 before the water stops. I know this can be annoying, but it is how some of them are made

Both hot and cold faucets do not shut completely off anymore and the tall gooseneck constantly drips. I had a handyman come in but he could not remove the handles


Sounds as though you need new rubber washers. Remove both hot and cold handles, replace rubber washers, ( bring to HD or hardware store to match up size ) and problem should be solved. Over time washers wear out on all faucets. They are very inexpensive. Hope this helped and good luck.

HELLO THE FAUCET DRIPS AT THE HANDLE AND THE HOT AND COLD SEEM REVERSED


On this valve the hot/cold in reverse is easy enough to fix, but the faucet dripping at the handle is another issue. To reverse the hot and cold, turn off the house water, relieve the pressure by opening a nearby faucet. Once the water stops, remove the handle and faucet cover so you can see the valve. then the four screws that are visible need to be removed. Mark one of the screw holes with a crayon or pencil and then remove by pulling straight out. Once out, inspect the main o-ring right behind where it sits against the valve, (if this is damaged, it might be why the handle area is leaking) then turn the whole assembly clockwise 180 degrees then insert straight back in and insert screws. Tighten screws until snug. Turn water back on before installing cover and handle to check for leaks. If no leaks are found, install cover and handle and check for proper position of hot and cold. If there are leaks, tighten screws in clockwise rotation tightening each screw a quarter turn, then moving to the next one until dripping stops. If dripping is from center of stem, where the handle attaches, you will need to contact Price Pfister to request a replacement. They are very good to work with. Good luck.

Trying to fix drip on cold water. Removed screw


I don't know what type of faucet you have. If you try to pry start from the back of the faucet. That way if you mess up the chrome (or other finish) it won't be so obvious. And make sure the water is turned off.
Good luck!

DRIPPING OLD BEVERAGE AIR FAUCET


New faucets are easily had from many places like beveragefactory.com, northerbrewer.com, austinhomebrew.com, micromatic.com, etc. You should also be able to find replacement washers/o-rings for your current faucet, but it may require an email or phone call to one of the sales reps to locate one. If you decide on a new faucet consider a Ventmatic (Shirron) forward sealing faucet. Much better design that drips less and doesn't stick after sitting a few days. The only issue I've seen is that the machined grooves in back of the faucet may not mate up with your current shank requiring a machined (as opposed to cast) shank to match.
