3 handle shower


i have just replaced the handles in my three handle shower tub (cold, hot, diverter). i have a price pfiser but could not find a model number on the housing so i removed the stems and replaced with a universal price pfiser shower tub replacement system...hooked up according to directions...it works well but when i have the water on a high pressure i get a little leak from the cold water handle...i have taken off and reattached and the problem is still there...it is only a small amount of water, but i think it leaks down inside the wall, so i want this fixed...what should i do.

3 handle shower


See if tightening up the packing nut behind the handle will stop the leakage.
