    Having changed both cartridges on an Armitage Shanks bath filler it still drips when both levers are in the off position. It's my understanding that there isn't anything else to replace/maintain and I've never encountered a tap that continued to leak after new parts were fitted. Has anybody?

    Thanks in advance.

    I take it they are quarter turn ceramic valves that you changed ? Are they the correct type ? Is the seat in good condition ( where the bottom of the valve meets the
    tap body )?

    They are the correct ones, product numbers were taken off the website. I ran a finger nail around the seat but it's very difficult to assess the condition of the brass with it being a recess for the o-ring to sit in.
