Plumbing in the Home/Dripping faucet

Question
Bathroom faucet drips no matter how much force applied to handles.

Plumber says nothing to be done. Really?

Answer
William,
Not knowing what brand or how old the faucet is I can not give you the best advice. If it uses washers to stop the flow, the seats and washers are probably shot. If  it is a cartridge type faucet stem the, replacement will be necessary. Either way it can most probably be remedied. Find a new Plumber who is willing to take it apart and fix it.
