There are many possible causes of leaking taps.
A defective washer can cause water leakage which is essential as it controls water flow. If it is damaged water may rush into the pipe even when the tap is turned off.
If the tap is on but water is leaking below the head, it is likely that the gland packaging or O-ring needs replacing. A possible cause of this fault can be soap seeping into the spindle, which reduces the amount of lubricating grease.
