One of my perlick faucets has started to have a slow drip out of it. If I put a cup under it in the morning the cup is half full. Has anyone had this problem or is my faucet just bad?

Thanks

You are just leaking by an oring. You will need to take it apart and inspect them and verify there are not tears on the oring and no scratches on the sealing surface. Here is a link on how they break down.

Like anthrobe said; clean them up nicely and put some keg lube on the rubber seals. I had a leak once and thats all it takes is some TLC.

At least you see the upside to the situation.
