In response to Re: shower leak
: I have a 3 handle shower setup. Even when both the hot and cold faucets are closed as tightly as possible I still get a slow drip...will replacing the faucet cartriges fix this leak?
: On a different subject I am installing a new tub and am wondering about the drain connection ..I bought a new gasket and put it on then screwed the pipe through the tub into the drain below but it doesnt seem to be getting a real tight seal...will applying plumbers putty to the flange before i put the rubber gasket on help fix this?, am I tightining it too much? It seems to snug up but when i turn it a little more it pops loose again...does it seat without being torqued down?
: any advice ,as long as its good, is appreciated

well i guess nobody can be bothered for a short time response to my question on this board...so being resourcefull I found out that after replacing the cartridges I stopped my leak and by searching drain info i found a do-it-yourself page with the answer to my drain problem....the rubber gasket goes under the tub and the drain flange gets a bead of plumbers putty before screwing down the assembly....so if you have the same problem as i did..heres the answers...NO THANKS TO THE JERKS ON THIS BOARD who answered many questions after mine but never even bothered to read mine...
