A little help please.

The only way water comes through a closed valve is if the packing is toast (it's a new valve so the cartridge is bad, can't put em in backwards). If it holds water at static pressure but leaks when another tap is opened then there is a faulty mixing valve backfeeding the distribution piping. The mixing valve could be at the leaky fixture, but I bet not.

You're right though, a good plumber would have figured that out and fixed it.
