Answers - mend, repair, fix

Physics - a plug of water inside the body of the tap is held suspended by air pressure - then something changes - vibration or air pressure or temperature - and the relationship between the air pressure and the weight of water changes - and the water dribbles out. Your shower head will act similarly.

Good Luck...
