If your tap is dripping, then it most likely requires a new washer. Alternatively, if your tap turns on and off with just a quarter turn, then you will need a replacement cartridge (not a new washer). Sourcing these cartridges can be a bit trickier as there are lots of different types and the plumbers’ merchant may have to order one in especially.
