Water leaking from top of the faucet (washroom)

Ask a Plumber

Hi Pro,

Whenever I open the tap the water is leaking from top of the faucet (washroom).

The faucet works well, this only happens when I have the faucet open half way to save water. The water starts dripping from the top.

Do I need to change the whole faucet?

  1. Sounds like the cartridge is allowing water to pass through the stem. So in this instance I would replace the cartridge. If the brand is well known most hardware stores will carry the replacement cartridge.
