All my faucets in my house either leak and/or drip. How can I fix this problem? Right now my tub and my kitchen sink drip, it's annoying, but something I can live with for awhile. My main concern is that my bathroom sink faucet not only drips but leaks something terrible, so bad that I have to keep a towel around the faucet fixture. I don't have any shut off valves under the sink, so 1. how do I find the shut off valves? and 2. how do I fix the faucet? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you, Sandy

As a single male I am hesitant to engage in any communication with someone who identifies themselves as SASSYLADY. Be gentle with me. HA!

You just need to fix your faucets. You may have only a main house shutoff. If you have a basement it will be where the water service enters or if a crawl space then by the crawl space opening. You can also shut of the water at your meter which may be out in your yard. You can call your water department and they could tell you where your shut off is most likely located.

Repairing your faucets are all different. It is best to identify the brand if possible. Also are they single lever or two handle? I'm surprised you haven't noticed an increase in your water bill.
