Question about Home
I replaced both cartridges (hot and cold) and it is still leaking
Leaks are where the joints are not sealing and water escapes. When putting joints back together without adding a sealant or teflon (PTFE) tape, they will sometimes leak. Take the joints apart again and use a small amount of a paste designed to seal joints, spread on the threads of the joints. Tighten them firmly once and let the compound set for 10 minutes before turning on the water.

SOURCE: I bought the Danco replacement
Sometimes on the stems on the side the handle attaches is a nut that can be tightened. Inside this nut is a rubber or other type of seal. tightening this nut stops the water from coming out of the handle. If the nut has already been tightened then possibly need to replace this rubber seal.
