: My bathtub faucet leaks, I think it was overtightened or something, do I have to rip up the wall to get at this? please help me someone! :)
1)Did you use the right size washer?
2)Was the replacement washer the tapered type, this type has better sealing qualities.
3)What is the condition of the seat, which is located in the valve, (you need a special tool to remove the seat)
4)Sometime with a new washer, you have to open and close the valve a couple of times for the new washer to seal itself.... Hope this helps... Rich
