SOURCE: single handle tub faucet will not divert to shower

the diverter on the tub spout is bad you need to replace the tub spout or the pull up diverter if its a separate piece if you have the owners manual with a parts diagram you can order it on line from the manufacturer or a plumbing supply store. you will need to unscrew the tub spoup from the wall to do this use a broom handle or something similar inserted inside the spout and turn it to the left to remove it from the wall

SOURCE: replaced shower valve. still drips from tub spout

The cartridge has 2 or 3 o-ring type seals around it that feed the water through, it picks up both hot and cold and mixes them. Some cartridges are replaced as one, some you have to replace the seals, just take the faucet info to the hardware store and match it up. I think the diverter is for the shower. It sends the water up instead of out.

The grey cartridge (diverter valve) of my shower is discontinued. The whole copper piece costs over $100. The piece I need only costs about $20. Any suggestions if I can find this anywhere else?

Water leak thru valve when turn to shower


a lot of shower diverters do this..you may need a bigger seal on the diverter..if you can remove the spout assembly from the tub(with the diverter valve in it) and take it all to the hardware store.. see if they have a different seal/diverter that has a snugger fit but still falls to drain the shower head line out..that will slow that leakage..the spout is on a pipe and unscrews counter clockwise(normally)unless its a single valve unit..with the wide ring around the back..then that calls for a plumber..

Why does the water not flow from shower valve when turned on?


Do you have water coming out of the tub spout and not the shower head? If so how does the water get directed to the shower head,is it by pulling up the diverter on the tub spout?If water is still coming out of the tub spout then the diverter is bad and the tub spout needs to be replaced.

When I turn on the tub faucet, water comes out of the spout and shower head. It's a t215.710 model


Does it have a diverter on the spout? If so, replace the spout with the same type. If it is a new installation, did you make up the valve or was it complete and designed for tub & shower? If it's an old valve and it has a separate diverter stem, there is a spacer behind the valve between the valve housing. Replace it.

Moen Shower Valve Model L82839 installed: Water comes out of shower head when running bath. Thanks.


Only two possibilities here the diverter tub spout is not open all the way to let water to the tub only or the shower valve is installed up-side-down.

I bought a tub/shower valve system from lowes. When I turn on the faucet for the tub, the water comes out the tub faucet and the shower head at the same time. Is this a defective valve? Everything seems...


it sounds like the tub filler itself. When you pull the knob up it's supposed to divert the water to the shower, if it's coming out both, I'd look at that piece, inexpensive and easy to replace

Moen shower valves are failing


the diverter is stuck. you have to move it up and down to free it up. the diverter is the mechanism attached to the tub spout that switches the water from shower to tub. you may also need a new diverter if fiddling with it doesn't work.
