well rich there is probably a bad o-ring in that dirveter.

with 3 knobs you do not have to turn the water off to fix it.

the local hardware should be able to help you if you take the part with you.

If you have the older model P.P. faucet it will be the packing on the stem.If this is the case all you will need to do is tighten the first nut on the stem and it wiil tighten packing and stop leak.If I'am not mistaken all pre 1984 P.P. three handle valves use packing.After 1984 they use O-rings you will then have to take stem out and replace o-ring.
