    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
