Default Problem with tub faucet

Hi Guys

I noticed that my hot water faucet in the tub was dripping so I replaced it with a new cartridge ( Its a compression fitting ) and am still having the same problem. I can hear it slightly hissing still when I get down and put my ear next to it. I replaced the seat also so am stumped as to what could be causing it. Do the threads on the seat or cartridge need teflon tape?

Any help would be great

Jeremy
