Update.

With the Lazy Hand gage installed, Normal pressure seems to be right around 65psi. I have watched it drop to 55psi, when someone is taking a shower or washing clothes. The peak pressure (After 24 hours) is 76psi. Thats pretty close to your 80psi.

Redwood - what do you think ?

You are okay on the pressure.

So after 3 weeks of always returning the handle on the faucet to the hot side and having 3 weeks of no drips, Yesterday there were around 6 drips in the catch pan that I place in the sink to log any dripping.

Every day during this time period, when switching on the cold water, there would be air in the line. So I switched on the hot water, and guess what, there was air in there also. So I ran both cold & hot and shut it off with the valve in the hot position.

This morning I checked the catch pan, it was dry ??????? Wierd

A new twist. Now the Shower is also dripping. Not all of the time. Once you take a shower and turn off the water, the head drips a bit and stops. About 3 min's go by and you hear a whoosh as water is released from the shower head. Then it stops and doesn't do it anymore until the next shower. The sink now drips off and on 24hrs a day no matter where I leave the valve handle. I'm about ready to get the shot gun out. LOL.
