It needs either a new washer or a new cartridge. Washers go in conventional taps (US=faucets) and may need the valve seat recutting, cartridges go into ceramic disc taps where off to fully on is just a quarter turn. If your tap has a lever to lift and operate for flow and left and right for temperature then it's a cartridge tap. Washers are expected to fail and be replaced, cartridges are intended to last the entire product lifespan but do sometimes wear out, break or seize due to limescale or dirt in the water supply.

Unfortunately there are so many designs and types that it's not practical to give you a blow by blow account of how to do the job, especially as there's no way to upload diagrams to FixYa. It also seems like you were unaware before asking this question what causes a tap to leak to start with, so it's a fair assumption that this job would currently be beyond your skills. A professional plumber should be able to re-washer or re-cartridge a tap in comfortably under fifteen minutes, so I'd suggest getting a local plumber in to do the job for you. Washers cost pennies, cartridges often cost £5 to £10 and on some taps are a proprietary design which may have no spares availability in which case the tap must be replaced.

How to repair disc-type faucets


DISC-TYPE FAUCETS

  • Disc faucets may have one or two handles. The water is controlled by openings in the two discs. When the discs are rotated to align, the water flows; when the discs are misaligned, the water shuts off. If the discs wear, the worn discs cause the faucet to leak. Simply turning the handles harder will not stop the leak.

  • To repair a leak in a two-handle disc faucet, turn off the water and remove the handle on the side that's leaking.

  • Use pliers to pull the disc assembly out of the faucet.

  • Beneath the disc unit is the seat assembly, or seal. Replacing this special O-ring may stop the leak.

  • You may need to install a whole new disc assembly for faucets that have been used over a long period of time. In this case, all moving parts of the faucet will have been replaced and should last as long as the original discs did. The parts of some disc units snap apart into a separate bonnet assembly and bottom cap.

  • To repair a leaking single-handle disc, turn off both the hot and cold water and remove the handle to expose the disc assembly. Take out the screws to lift the assembly out of the faucet.

  • You'll notice that beneath the disc unit are three O-ring seals. Though unlikely, water could be leaking between the unit and one of these seals. In this case, you may be able to stop the leak by cleaning the disc assembly and faucet body and installing a new set of seals. If that doesn't work, the entire disc unit must be replaced. This will renew all moving parts.

  • Replacing the unit is fairly simple. Place the three O-rings into their recesses in the bottom of the disc unit. Then install the unit and tighten the screws. Finally, replace the handle–and you're done!

How to stop sink leak


Check whether the faucet is leaking or the drainage is leaking.
If the faucet is leaking, you need tools to loosen the faucet to check whether the hoses are leaking or not. If the drainage is leaking, you can tighten the slip nut.

Faucet is leaking from the cold water line inside the faucet. it is a danze lazio pull out kitchen faucet


Hello
First shut off water to faucet.There should be a allen screw that holds the faucet together near the top back of the handle,lossen this and pull top off.

Next take some pliers and tighten down the lock nuts to compress the washers,do this gently.

Reassemble,water should stop leaking.

cartridge does not stop that type of leak. If it is leaking from around the base of the spout it is o-rings that are the problem that are onthe valve after you pull the spout all the way off.
