Dripping bathtub faucet in 1920s home
We have lived in our 1929 home for almost 6 years and in the last year, the hot water has begun to drip from the bathtub faucet. Lately it has increased to a full tiny stream, wasting a lot of water. We are not plumbers but lately have been doing more diy fixes on our home and appliances so I thought I would check in here for advice on whether this is a problem we can fix ourselves or what we should look for in a plumber if we need help. I have read about some very different problems online so I'm not sure if it's just a washer or some more complex valve issue. If we try it ourselves I want to have an idea of what we are dealing with before turning of the water and having no ability to shower or hot water. There is no turn off valve just serving the tub.
Thank you so much! I will monitor and answer any questions I can.
