Faucet in shower leaks

The Master bedroom shower drips whenever any outside faucet is turned on. I'm really scratching my head over this one. Anyone ever experience this? If so what resolved the problem?

Welcome to the forums.

What type of faucet do you have there ?

Newer faucets are cartridge type and rely on sufficient water pressure to shut off.
It may possibly signify a replacement soon.

Good point Joe and on the other hand it shouldn't dip much below 40 PSI or so either.

Pressure gauge

I will get a pressure gauge and check. I did replace a couple of vacuum breakers this spring. I wonder if that has anything to do with it?
