dripping faucet
 
I just put a new cartridge in my tub faucet and it still leaks. The strange part is ...it does not leak when I turn the water supply on. It only leaks after I have used the faucet. Any help?

I suspect that the tub spout diverter is stuck almost closed--

Water remains in the shower pipe and spout arm after the valve is closed---

Typically that water drains out in a few moments when the valve is closed---

Something is keeping water in the pipes---either a bad spout or a closed shower spray head---Just my guess--

Thanks, but
 
My shower is separate from the tub. However. they are in line with the tub controls below the shower controls on the otherside of the wall.
