: : I can't figure this one. I changed and installed a new cartridge (K71969). I even changed the diverter. I still have a steady stream of water leak. Could the problem be the cartridge or the washers and o-rings. I can't figure anything else, because there really aren't too many other parts.


Dennis,
The only other part that can be causing the problem is the pressure balance cartridge that is behind 71969 cartridge. This will often be the cause of the leak after the operating cartridge is replaced.Use the link to see the parts breakdown of the faucet with the pressure balance cartridge.
