Price Pfister Shower Leak - Help


Hi all, I have a problem I cannot solve. We have a Price Pfister shower fixture. It was leaking at the shower head. I replaced the two- piece valve assembly, which consists of a balancer cartridge and the mixing unit that attaches to the handle. That seemed to fix the constant drip. However, we have a recirculating pump for our tankless water heater and whenever the pump goes on the shower drips again. I know it's not a defective cartridge or mixer because I bought another set and had the same problem. I've tried silicone grease and other solutions with no luck. Any ideas about why it would continue to drip when the recirculating pump goes on?
Thanks!
Matt

Hot water expansion of a Price Pfister component. Try lowering the temperature 10 - 15 degrees.

Is there an expansion tank plumbed into the line?

I'll try lowering the temp but the odd thing is that I didn't have this problem with the original components.
