Replacing kitchen faucet

My faucet drips and I can't get it to stop.  I guess I need a new one?  I have never done this before and am not real experienced with repairs.  How hard is this to do for a newbie?  Do I need special tools and equipment?  I really need to get this done because the drip is getting worse, almost a slow stream.  Thank you.

Greetings soapmaker and welcome to our community!


Thank you for your question here, it is one I get quite often "in the aisles" at my local Home Depot. The good news is that it is very unlikely that you need to replace your faucet. Plumbing fixtures for kitchen, bath, and laundry typically have either washers or cartridges that will wear over time and require replacement. Examples of each and the steps to take to replace them are seen in this How to Video from our website;



By following the steps shown, I am sure you can fix this yourself. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.
