It will depend on the type of faucet if it is a three handle or has a popup in the spout popup in the spout will be the easiest to repair do so just by replacing with a new spout if it is a three handle you will have toremove the center handle and then remove the stem there will be a washer of some type replace the washer and put back together and try.

Do you use less water if you take a bath than if you take a shower?

* A brief shower will use much less water than a bath, as a bath needs to be at least half way up the bathtub. Unless, of course, you take a long shower with the water on full power.* A bath almost never takes less than a shower. A really brief shower may use only a gallon of water; it will always be less than two. An average shower will be 2-3 gallons -- or maybe even 4-5 if you are washing long hair. No matter how short a time you spend in the bathtub, you will use 15-20 gallons before you step in.True
