My outdoor faucet is leaking in a constant dribble, regardless of how tight I turn the handle. The faucet looks very similar to this one. I'm going to replace the whole faucet in the next month or so.
In the meanwhile, it is leaking against the house, wasting water, and I'm worried about the constant water puddle finding its way through the foundation into the basement. I know I could go to the basement and turn off the valve to this faucet. However, I use this faucet pretty often, and I'd hate to have to go into the basement and re-open the valve every time I want to use it.
Is there any other stop gap solution that I could use to stop the dribble of water from this faucet? Maybe some sort of screw on cap that I could purchase?
