shower faucet Cartridge leaks

I am going to try and explain to the best of my ability. When I would turn the hot water on nothing would come out of the faucet. So reviewing a couple of they websites, I decieded to replace the cartridge. I couldn't pull it out, so I got some awls and screwdrivers to re move it. It came out in pieces. I put in the new cartridge and now it leaks bad when I turn the cold or hot on. The funny thing is that when it is off there is no leak.

Could I have damaged the copper housing the holds the cartridge? What am I doing wrong?

Any suggestions?

Try a new cartridge maybe the one you used is defective.


Fix it right the first time, so you won't have to fix it a 2nd time.
