Use a crescent wrench on the shower head. If the head alone won't budge, the entire head plus arm will unscrew. Then just pick up a new arm and some teflon tape and reattach both. good luck

How do I change a single diverter to a 3 way diverter?


Not exactly sure what you are attempting. A quick-and relatively inexpensive way-would be to add an Alsons diverter to the shower arm. It is simply removing the shower head, adding the diverter, and reinstalling the shower head and accessory hand held shower. If you are looking for something different, there are myriad valves on the market that would allow for such change. However, changing to a new valve could get somewhat complicated. For example: you may need to increase the size of the supply lines that are feeding the shower; some diverters require a 3/4" feed.


Also, if you check the box stores, they have several shower/hand held shower kits that already have the diverter with the packaging. Again, I am not exactly sure of the end result in which you seek, but I hope this helps some.

Old Moen shower diverter


You will have to replace the shower diverter button. Remove the handle, remove the faceplate, and the diverter will screw out. Any plumbing supply that carries Moen products will have a replacement button for your valve

I have replaced the guts to my delta shower two years ago. It now is holding a lot of water in the spout before it hits the shower head. Is there a problem with the shower head or do the insides need to be...


Lets start by removing the shower head from the chrome pipe on the wall and check the screen filter to make sure you are getting full flow. if this dose not cure problem then lets look at the diverter valve.is it a push button on the wall plate or a pull down spout diverter? if it's the push button it may have a bad paddle and needs to be replaced. If it's on the spout i am leaning towards the shower head. hope this helps. Let me know if you need more information.

Can this diverter run both the shower head and a hand held shower.


This unit will allow the function of the shower head or the hand held shower individually. You can make both operate at the same time but the performance will be dismall at best.

Shower arm is loose


The best way is to cut a hole in the wall and fix it right. That will entail replacing the surface material, probably sheetrock. You could try some silicone sealant around the shower arm behind the eschusion. It will still move, but not much.

Kohler K-9511-BN MasterShower Shower Arm & Diverter Doesn't Work


As a helpful hint , on these models, When installed some plumbers or home owners use plumbers putty to seal the threads and in some cases tape.
Most of the time the putty or tape gets pushed through the system if too much was used.
Check by removing the shower head and testing the pressure and blowing anything else through, then checking the head itself for foreign objects.
Kohler has a cleaning and care page on thier web site if it needs cleaned.
