If your Kitchen Tap is dripping where the spout meets the base of the tap then usually a new set of O Rings should fix this problem.
Different Kitchen Taps take different O Rings so if you are not sure which set you require then a picture of your tap and as much information as you know about it i.e. brand name? or what information is stamped on the valve ? will help us identify which O Rings you require. You can email all details to firstname.lastname@example.org
