Put the valve between positions. Tighten the "bonnet" nut just behind the handle. Then open the valve up all the way, and back it in an 1/8 turn.
If that doesn't work, repacking the valve stem material or replacement may be needed. Terry

: A hot water shutoff valve in the basement supplying the second floor bathroom drips quickly both when

: repair it short of calling a plumber. I am not versed in all the names for each part of the valve-are there
: any diagrams available?
