Re: Dripping Bathroom Sink Faucet

Assuming the leak/drip is from the faucet spout, not the plumbing from underneath or the base of faucet, etc. Most of the time the dripping is caused by worn seat washers or cups, depending on the style of faucet. Two handle faucets use rubber washers on the bottom of the valves. After a period of time they get hard, deteriorate, and just quit working. Single lever faucets have seals too, but these are in the form of "cups" on the central ball or cartridge. Your local hardware store will have washer and cup kits.
