Post Delta Bathroom Faucet

Attempted to repair a dripping 2-handle Delta bathroom faucet. Replaced cartridge. Upon turning the water supply back on; the faucet flows with water whether the lever handle is in an open or closed position. What did I do wrong?

The cartridge that is leaking is probably in wrong. It needs to be turned 180 degrees. Maning the cold and hot have a different orientation.

Or you may have failed to re install the washer that sits at the bottom of the faucet where the cartridge sits on. Springs should be replaced, or you can stretch the old ones slightly.

Hope this helps.
