Question about Home
The cartridge in the faucet is leaking, Turn off the water to the house, either at the water heater or the main line in, take the faucet handle off, and then the cartridge should be held on there by a big skinny bolt or ring, take it off, pull the cartridge out, and look inside the faucet for springs and O-rings, take the parts to the hardware store and match them up to a repair kit. Put it back together, you should be all set. Most faucets are built that way, single stem are the same, anti scald devices are tricky, do not let the rings fall out and make sure it goes back the same way if it is an anti scald unit. Older faucets are a little different, no cartridge, but still has rubber parts in there that are worn out. Hope this helps.
