Question about Grohe Eurosmart, 3-hole Roman Tub Filler and Hand Shower w/ StarLight Chrom

1 Answer

Diverter valve does not work correctly.

Eurosmart 3-hole tub filler w/ hand shower
When turned on, water flows from hand shower and diverter knob is set in the up position. Pushing down on the knob diverts water to the spout but when released the knob pops back up and water flow is through the hand shower.
The knob does not default the water flow to the spout.
In other words the water flows only from the hand shower and will not flow from the spout unless the knob is held down manually.

My tub faucet keeps leaking when the shower head is engaged. How do I fix it?


Depends on where the diverter valve is on the tub. If you pull up on a knob on the water spout for the tub, then it's not likely the leak will ever stop completely. If the diverter valve is in the wall then a repair kit can be had at any home improvement store.

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

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..

Water flows from shower and tub when it should only be the tub


you need a new diverter valve, actually it's inside of the spout/filler for the tub, a very simple fix. It isn't holding all of the way.

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.

We have installed a moen 82490 one handle tub & shower unit. When we turn on the water you could shower and bath at the same time. If you pull the plug for just a shower the water to the spout stops...


If you pull the silver knob on the tub spout up, the diverter located located inside will redirect water up to the shower head and when lowered it will return the water to the tub spout. It sounds as thought the diverter is not working properly. Hope this helps..

No Hot water


Now there could be many reasons why this is happening. 1 the diverter may be assembled incorrectly. 2 the diverter/cartridge may be defective. 3 the plumber may have used to much solder, filling the pipe thus blocking the flow. 4 There is a shut off valve somewhere that's closed.
Do you have a home warranty? If so I would suggest calling the builder and inform them of the problem. Any respectable builder gives a warranty, I believe in most states its mandatory. This should be covered. Just a heads up, this could involve some holes being opened in the walls, ceilings, and floors in more than one place.

The water comes out of both the shower head and the tab simultaneously. If the knob controlling the water flow is turned to the side that control the water to shower head then about 75% of the water flows...


I will have to assume this issue developed and was not present at first use after the initial installation.

There are generally only two reasons for your problem. The first is that the diverter mechanism is simply wearing out and/or broken. The second it that there is a foreign object preventing it from doing its job correctly. Either way the diverter must come out. I have provided a couple of links below that should help get it out.

Once out, put a wadded up towel over the end of the tub spout opening so as to prevent any water from coming out of it. Then, for just a moment, turn your shower on full and adjust your temperature from full cold to full hot. This process should dislodge any foreign matter and send it out the opening the diverter came out of and also will probably get you wet. I usually plug the tub so I can catch what, if anything, comes out. Having a second person holding a bowl over the diverter opening helps reduce the water splash.

Rinse off the diverter and reinstall it. Turn the shower on and see if there is any difference in how much water comes out the spout while in the shower mode. If nothing has changed then the next step is to replace the diverter.

The diverter assembly part number is A603819

Shower spout


There is a threaded stem that passes through the spout and attaches to the white plastic diveter valve. If you are starting from scratch (everything apart), you can put it back together in this order:
1) Place the white plastic diverter inside the spout. the circular side with the black round washer should face the the wall side of the shower (mating up against the threads for the water pipe).
2) The stem can now be inserted from the top and into the notched section of the white plastic diverter valve. The threaded end of the stem shoud be outside of the spout (from the top side).
3) A round black washer fits over the threads. It should sit right where the threads end. Dont push it all the way on to the unthreaded portion of the stem.
4) Screw the threaded knob onto the threads.

Should be ready to install now. Including the spout itself, there are 5 parts and are configured in this order from top to bottom.
1) Female threaded knob (the knob for operating the spout)
2) Threaded stem (threads on top)
3) Round black washer
4) Spout
5) Whit plastic diverter valve.

Mine leaks when I turn on the shower, thus reducing shower pressure. I looks like a poor design to me. The stem is not a tight fit in the spout and this allows the diverter to "wobble". The washer on the diverter valve does not seat tightly and allows water to leak out the tub spout when showering. I would replace the spout.
