Bathtub Shower Faucet Leak

Have replaced all washers but faucet still leaks (drips). What should I do next. It is an older set.

Bathtub Shower Faucet Leak

If it's an older two handle unit the valve seats may be pitted and need replacing.

remove the valve stems again and look into the valve body ---the seat is in the back of the hole---

Use an Allen wrench to unscrew the seat---take it to a plumping supply house and get a replacement.
