Kitchen faucet pull out sprayer drips water

Hello All,

A newbie here - Both to this forum and to the world of plumbing since becoming a new home owner recently.

Anyways, I got this kitchen faucet (as shown in the pictures) and the water continues to drip from the sprayer when the both the cold/hot taps are completely shut. It drips about 1 drop of water every 10 seconds or so.

What exactly I need to do or where to start to fix the problem? I hope the entire faucet set does not have to replaced, if that's the case is anyone able to tell what make/model the shown faucet is?

Many thanks for any any assistance or tips you folks can provide.

I'd start with replacing the hot and cold cartridges.

Welcome the forums.

No one can recognize all the different faucets that are made. There are literately hundreds of styles from many different manufacturers. I use image search engines to locate fixtures. So far I have not found yours. You may need to shut off the water, take the handles apart and remove the cartridges to locate the make and what inserts it uses.

What I use...... google image search

Thank you for your reply. Even when the cold water water handle is closed it doesn't feel as tight as the hot water handle so I guess most likely that's the side with the problem and I can start with replacing the cartridge on the cold water handle.

Attached are the pics of the handle and what's underneath the sink . I just need some help to identify the cartridge itself, please.

I am not familiar with that faucet, but I would start looking for the cartridges above the counter starting at the faucet handles. Worst case, replace the faucet with a name brand and keep all the paperwork for future use.

That metal clip on the bottom is rare. I've never seen it on a faucet and I can't find anyone that uses it.
You need to remove the handles and the pyramid shaped cone on top. The handle attaches directly to the cartridge.

I'd scour that complete faucet set for any marks or numbers.
