In response to Re: Leaky Tub Faucet
: I have tried everything. Replaced the main stem and components, replaced the seat but still leaks Hot water only, cold I fixed OK. Also When the hot water is first turned on the water runs fine until it gets hot then it almost seems to shut off. I have to open the valve somwhat more in order for the flow to continue. Never had this problem until I started to rebuild the faucet no I can't stop it from leaking. Any advise you can provide would greatly be appreciated.
: Thanks

Mark, Did you put pipe dope on the threads of the seat? It will leak if you didn't. Make sure the packing nut is tight on the stem and the washer is tight. Dale's Plumbing Service LMP
