    Hi all

    Kitchen mixer tap with 1/4 turn taps keeps dripping for 5-10 seconds after turning off the hot tap.

    I've replaced the tap cartridge and removed the spout and given it a good clean.

    The spout still drips but only on the hot tap.

    What could be the issue? As it's only the hot tap I would have thought the cartridge the obvious problem.

    Any help gratefully received!

    Is it not just the residual?

    Most taps now drip or let water out after being turned off, so what’s happening is standard
