Default Leaky fuel booster pump???

Has any experienced a leaky electric booster pump - with the fuel leaking from the body of the pump? I have one of the Facet (?) pumps van's sells and occasionally get a drip when the pump is running. I spoke with Vans and they've never heard of such a thing and I'm wondering if anyone else has.

Thanks - Pat

I've seen the Lycoming engine-driven pumps seep out but never a Facet. Make sure it's not the fittings going in/out and if that's not it consider replacing it, they're fairly cheap.
