Unhappy

shower handle annoyance


I have completely replaced the guts of my tub handles and still have a drip. I have torn it all apart twice and have found no reason for the drip. New seats, washers, stems, handles.....still drips.

HELP

Replace seats or re rim them.

Two and three handle Gerber Tub and Shower Faucet

I found this for you---the guts are not all that unusual----only cause of a drip would be the seat and the washer---see if the steps shown here match up with your method--
