    Default Basic question here. leaky clawfoot tub faucet.

    Cold water drip.
    I know the basic concept of tightening it, but I have also broken things by overtightening. Hence my username.

    The stem gets removed and the washer replaced. Sometimes the "seat" that the washer presses against needs work or replacement.
