That would normally be a "Fuller ball" faucet, but it may be a more modern one with conventional stems and washers.

I would think that new washers is all that it would need.

Thank you! I am pretty sure you are right. It is definitely not a vintage kind, but more of a modern early 2000's model if I recall correctly. I am not at the site to take the cartridge apart, I went to the hardware store and they gave me some parts to "rebuild" it, but it didn't do the trick. I am now reading that these type of faucets need the bottom rubber replaced or tighten. Otherwise, if you guys don't mind keeping taps...I will post the pic of the cartridge and give me some pointers where to find it. Thank you again!

I don't think that faucet contains a cartridge, but will have a stem, washer, and brass seat.

Hi all, Thank you for your information, I wanted to wait after my return and I now have pictures of the cartridge/steam? the bottom rubber seems a bit smashed and also the top has a smashed rubber which I don't recall what it looks like. If you click on the link above you will find the additional pictures.

Any idea what brand of faucet and/or cartridge I need to buy or what rubber parts to replace? I replaced the rubber band in the middle and it didn't help. Thank you!
