    Default Bathtub Faucet Leaking When Toilet Flushes

    Hello,
    I've recently changed my bathtub spout and shower head. Now there is a constant slow drip in my bathtub spout, and when my toilet flushes that drip becomes a slow flow out of the spout. Do I need to just change the spout, or are there other issues that need to be addressed?

    Thanks ahead of time for your advice.

    it's not a tub spout issue at all. it's somehow related to the shower valve which is where the water shuts off. the cartridge might need a new washer or O-ring. call a plumber, should be an easy fix.

    That's right, you have a problem in your cartridge/body, not spout.
