Is there an adjustment that can be made to a faucet? I just tasted my first glass of my first brew, mighty tasty and I'm sure it will get better with age, but as when I turned off my faucet, it kept dripping and at a fairly good rate. Did I just get a crappy faucet, or is there a way to adjust it so it will shut off?

Is the locking nut turned too far down to allow the tap to turn off? Check it.

I didn't realize how easily they came apart. I just tightened the bolt on the inside where the seal is on the back of the valve, and I tightened the ring on the top that holds the lever, I think it was too loose an not holding it shut. Either way, I think its fixed, or at least good enough when I tried it on a keg of water. Thanks for the help.
