    I’ve replaced the cartridges, springs, and seats in this faucet twice. It works fine for a few months, then starts dripping again. The last time I used plumber silicone grease, which made it turn smooth, but now it’s dripping again.
    Any ideas?

    They don’t make this faucet any more. Delta has lost money on me, I have called them so many times for replacement parts.
    There are only two parts involved. The cartridge and the spring/seat. They use these same parts in most of their faucets. I just don’t see why it doesn’t hold like it should.

    They probably will send you all new guts first and if it didn’t fix it they will replace it. I needed a replacement under warranty for a discontinued model that had corrosion when there were no parts available. They asked me to select a similar replacement from a list they sent me. They then sent me the new model.
