    In new bathroom, when I turn the water on, water comes out the shower and the lower nozzle. When I pull up on the shower lever, water comes out of shower and not the nozzle which is how it should be. How do I get the water to not come out of the shower when the shower lever is not pulled up? took the nozzle off so that water is just coming out of the lower pipe to help eliminate the nozzle as the problem. Same results.

    Is this a new faucet and what brand? One handle or two?

    This will also occur if the valve was installed upside down. If your home has decent water pressure, do not use pex tubing between the valve and the spout. The best choice is 1/2" galvanized pipe, which has twice capacity than pex. The valve is out putting more volume than the pex pipe can handle, which is why it backs up to the shower,

Depending upon which valve you used and how it was plumbed, you may need a twin elle or a specific part to match the ROHL pressure balance valve. if your second outlet is plumbed off the bottom of the valve, you need 18" of pipe between the valve and the outlet. Anything shorter than this and you can have back pressure issues.

Verify the height from the shower valve to the Shower head, the instructions specify the correct distance if it is too short the pressure could be getting up to the shower head.

Perhaps the water pressure it too high at the valve not allowing all the water down the faucet outlet, there are set screws on the sides of the shower valve to adjust the water allowed in the mixing chamber.

Something is restricting the water flow to the faucet, creating enough pressure to send some of the ater supply up to the shower.

I hope some of these ideas help

There should be a dirverter on the tub spout. It will be either a knob to pull up or a ring to pull down on and hold untill the water comes out the shower head.

If there is no dirverter go buy a new tub spout with one.. The prior owners may have installed the wrong spout.

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..

When i turn on bath water it runs also from the shower if i pull lever up for just shower than just shower runs


You have more water trying to come out of the spout than the diverter gate will allow so by default it find another path of least resistance which is up the shower pipe to the head. I would suggest just getting a new tub spout. Remove it by unscrewing like you would a jar lid or it may have an allan set screw underneath and towards the rear.

Hope this helps and good luck.

No hot water pressure on kohler bath / shower faucet


Try draining the system and apply air pressure (min 30psi) to each faucet. Open other hot water faucets to allow pressure to vent. Next try draining and cleaning the hot water tank.

Shower head leaks water when water is turned on


take out the cartridge from the fixture and make sure it has all of the "O" rings and stoppers.
look at the instruction again, make sue you are installing it the right side up. if all that, the shower still leak, then you need to talk to the place you brought the fixture, it may have a defective cartridge.
