I have a dripping bath tub faucet and a lazy hubby. I get great satisfaction in fixing things myself. Can someone tell me how to correct this drip...it is driving me crazy. THANKS a BUNCH

I don't see a brand name....there is a spigot for the hot water and one for the cold water and then the one where the waer comes out. I guess I will go to Lowe's tomorrow and see what they say

Thanks again

I may be a good idea to bring in one of the valve washers or seats to lowes so you don't waste a trip. Our tub faucet used like a 1 1/4 plumbing socket/wrench to get the valve hardware out of the body.

A good plumbing supply guy will recognize your hardware. At lowes, you will have to flip through a book.

My tub has a sterling Faucet. The manufacturer has installation instructions online. http://www.sterlingplumbing.com/onlinecatalog/pdf/fi10221_10221p_10921_10921p_series_102_109.pdf perhaps you can do this in reverse to remove the valve stems to take in for replacement washers or seats.
