Hello, I was having pressure problems in my shower and removed the cartridges to flush out the lines. After replacing them water comes out at a trickle regardless to if the faucet is open of closed. It is an american standard colony 2 handle faucet. anyone have any ideas? thanks.

Do you mean the water leaks out even when the faucet is turned off, or that the flow is ALWAYS a trickle regardless of whether the handle is turned part way or full open? If the former, you did not reassemble the faucet properly, and if the latter, the problem is probably in the shower head.

the water leaks out whether the faucet is on or off. I figured the faucet was assemble wrong, I just could not figure out why. It seems to be the cartridge itself that is incorrect. thanks for the reply.

Replace your cartridge and troubleshoot from there.
