    Post Shower leaking

    I have replaced the shower head, hot faucet stem, hot faucet handle, cold faucet stem, cold faucet handle, and the stem & springs for both hot and cold. However, I still have a very small leak from the cold handle faucet. I'm out of ideas on how to fix leak, any help would be great.

    Are these compression stems? if yes, did you replace the seats?

    Replace the faucet. Glacier Bay is below builders grade. Not worth trying to repair as you have discovered.

    Sometimes the repair job is imperfect, even when the parts are OK and are the right ones.

    Repairing faucets is not rocket science, still it has to be done correctly. Sometimes it's easier and more economical to replace the faucet. You'll save time, gas to the stores, shipping and handling, frustration and even money, and you'll have a shining new faucet to admire.

    Glacier Bay ain't worth having or fixing. Get a Delta and you'll be glad you did.
