i can't tell if my shower tap (cock stop) is leaking or not ...........after showering, the shower head will drip fast for 2 hours, then drip slowly after that...........i put a bucket under the shower head to collect the water.......but even after 24 hours - not that much water was collected (most of the water collected was in the first 2 hours)...............

i'm wondering if the leaked water is from the water pipe between the stopcock and the water heater and forced by air pressure through the shower hose and drip from the shower head ?? .............i changed the shower stopcock 3 and 2 other cheaper taps (all same brand) at the same time 3 years ago but the 2 cheaper taps are not leaking .........

this is the said leaking stopcock (please see pic in below link)..........can i remove the handle and change the ceramic cartridge ??.........

If there is a ceramic cartridge in there and you have a replacement, then I would say you should be able to remove the handle and replace the cartridge. I have no experience with that type of faucet.

This is awkward, but...
