Replace diverter valve

My new Moen diverter valve has an issue; it's 2-function; shower head and hand held. When I turn it all the way to either the shower head or hand held, the other fixture still has a slow, tiny trickle. How do I adjust it so the non-used fixture is completely off to kill that trickle? I've already replaced the diverter cartridge once as the original was faulty.

SOURCE: I just installed the valve

Assuming that your two heads are fed from the typical curved wall mounted shower pipe, what you need is a diverter valve. Removed both heads till it's down to just that curved pipe. Get a diverter valve from a plumbing supply store. Tell the sales folks that you want to install a diverter valve so that in one position, the hand held receives water and in the other, it cuts the hand held and puts it to the reg. shower head instead. They should give you a "T" sort of fitting. The female threads of this screws into that curved shower pipe. Then you will find two male thread ends. These connect to both your shower heads. Finally there will be a push/pull knob that is operated to control which head gets the water.

SOURCE: I purchased a Moen L82691SRN

You have purchased a scald guard faucet, that you will have to set for your own house. If you take off the handle and face plate and look down there should be a plastic part (usually a deep blue) with teeth. It restricts the hot water side of the unit. If you pull it out and rotate (about halfway) you should have water flow. If it is still not hot enough rotate it more, or less.

SOURCE: Dripping, leaking Moen shower fixture.

In general, leaks are often caused by a scratched or torn cartridge, O-ring, or grommet. Typically, a cartridge replacement will correct this type of leak. -------- Lifetime Warranty - Moen faucets come with a (Limited) Lifetime Warranty against leaks, drips, and finish defects. (post 1995 to the original home owner) ----------- But if cartridge replaced and still leaking then it can be loose fitting or problem in water valve.Click this link below and go through troubleshooting:--- http://howtobyme.blogspot.com/2011/07/replace-cartridge-but-still-water.html ---------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

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

What to do if i can't stop the water flowing from the shower spout and there's little water pressure coming from the shower head and a hand held shower?


One rule I live by: more parts, more problems. Sounds to me that the plumbing/valves were not insalled properly. If you hired a profesional plumber, have them fix it. I am a licensed profesional plumber and I offer a 1 year warranty on all my work. If the contractor did the work and does not hold a plumbing license, that person is still responsible and may have to suffer legal consequenses.

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.

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.

Moen Hand Shower repair


  1. snap the chrome adjuster offd2c6998a-2192-4f5b-9240-6bf56d4f6da0.jpg
  2. start unthreading centre of head. I used a paint scraper to leverage at first. The threads get loose soon to hand loosen.0588438c-31ce-4428-9378-28140fa37adb.jpg
  3. loosen the spray ring using a lever to get threads started. Hand loosen after that.It's got right hand thread so the outer ring will be turning counter clockwise.3e2cc1ab-35f5-4521-a05f-e1167596fb04.jpg
  4. Take flat rubber gasket out of centre of head and take screw out, then pry white nylon part out with tool. I used tweezer.a1f4f121-e0e1-450a-a9b8-8777342a3262.jpg
  5. Clean scraped parts in hot CLR solution or any vinegar will work as well. Reassemble with lubricant so it works like new. Most likely need for disassembly is clogging or a broken "o"-ring.6fff7106-1b7b-4330-a3c6-089ea42233cf.jpg

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.
