Question about Home
I have a circa 1929 speakman mixometer shower that allows a slow trickle of cold water out of the shower head when turned off. i have found schematics of a mixometer online, but am unsure of my model number, or if there is much variation among them mechanically. has anyone encountered this problem? is it easily solved by tightening? i would like to be as informed as possible before i put my wrench to the thing, so that i can save this cool old feature of the house. i have no formal training, but am fairly competent at these things, especially if someone points me in the right direction.
If your shower get leaked then you should consult with a professional as he can fix this problem very easily.

Does the tub spout water flow stop when the shower knob is pulled?
Was the systems pipping flushed before the shower head was installed?
It may be clogged, remove the shower head and then attempt to operate. If it is clogged you will see debris trapped in the screen at its connection point. The shower head can be disassembled - cleaned - reassembled
Is the shower head an adjustable type, that may be in the off position?

turn the water off! at the meter and go buy a faucet seat removal tool its L shaped with square heads on each end also buy a faucet valve socket to remove the faucet stems after you take the knobs and unscrew the trim housings once you unscrew the faucets stems there inside the hole deep is 2 brass seats that you need to remove and change put the new seats in and replace the washers on the stems and reassemble

SOURCE: Kohler rite temp with diverter.
You could have a restriction in the tub spout or just too much pressure. Diverter only restricts flow to tub spout so any restrictions to the tub spout will cause water to go up to shower head.
