Forum Title: Taps need to be really tight to stop water?
My bathroom sink and tub faucets need to be really tight to stop the water from flowing? Seats and seals were just changed. Need to know the process on how to correct this, I am not a plumber and have regular tools only.

get a pressure gauge that you can screw into a hose bib and check your water pressure. Then let us know what you found.

What is a hose bib?

Until the seals form around the seats, it may need to be snugged tighter than normal. Give it a few weeks then report back.
