For this task, you need to keep some spare cloth, screwdrivers, towels, newspapers, and a knife on standby.

A common solution for a leaking compression faucet is replacing the worn out rubber washer. For this, you need to take off the decorative cap on the handle and the screw so that the handle comes off easily. With a wrench, remove the packing nut.
