    Swivel spout.
    Water pooling at the joint with the sink.
    Water seems to vent from the spout and no more, rather than a leak.
    Tap is ten years old
    Repair or replace?

    Do you mean water escapes from where it swivels at the tap body ? If so it probably just needs new O rings. If not fit a new tap .

    as above.

    O ring sounds more likely.

    If you know the brand, email them. The better firms will send the O-rings out for free.

    Post a photo of the tap for more advice.
