If you are going to do something with them install hammer arrestors, They have a piston in them that prevents loss of the air charge. This means they work!
Still it is not your problem.
Get a lazy hand pressure gage that screws on a hose bibb and set it up for 24 hours and the lazy hand will record the highest pressure reached. Post back with your highest pressure reached.
Thanks for the post. I couldn't fine one of these gages locally, so I ordered one. It should be in next week. What are we looking for ?
I also want to update. I decided to buy ( a replacement cartridge from the mfg), bu a new one in a package. I installed it and withing 2 days it started dripping again. But I have found something new, If I switch the handle to the hot side, It doesn't leak ? If I leave it on the cold side, within 24 hrs, it starts dripping again ?
I'll post the numbers as soon as I get the gage.
