In response to Re: Leaky Tub Faucet
If what you have done does not fix the leak, and redoing it just to check it out also does not work, then I have to assume it is a Price-Pfister faucet and the stem was installed in something other than the full open position. If that is not done, often the stem breaks the seat holding partition. A small crack causes a leak, anything else and the faucet will not shut off. If this is the problem, there is no cure except to replace the 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
