Just moved into the new house. After using filling bathtub with hot water and turning it off, within about five minutes, the tap turns itself back on. Only happens with this one hot water tap.

Searching the web, I notice that an inn in Ontario is claiming to be haunted on the basis of the same phenomenon. I was actually hoping this could be fixed by something other than exorcism.

Suggestions most welcome.

If brand new house less then a year old, recall the contractor for a free repair, if not replace the stem with a new one, or remove it and wipe some of the stem grease off of it.

especially if its an american standard aqua seal. If you grease them it turns back on.
