It sounds like the diverter is not fully opening to allow the water to run to the spout. If the diverter is in the wall, perhaps there is a seal in there that needs replacing. If it is in the spout, just replace the spout,

My husband in stalled in shower vavle body. When bathtub is filling, water comes out shower head any ideas.


It's possible you installed the valve upside down, all values should be labeled in some way marking either hot and cold or it will say the word up where the riser tube port for the shower head is. If that's not the case remove the tub spout and check for any obstruction sometimes during tile or constructing debris can get into the pipe for your tub spout. Lastly the diverter on the tub spout could be bad. Try a new tub spout

I just installed a new shower with no tub. I have water to my delta fixture but no water out the head. I used shark bite connectors and did not solder the fittings


Are your walls still open? I assume they are as you'd be unlikely to close them up without having had tested your water flow. Here is what I would do.
1.) use the orange plastic C shaped release tool to depress the white plastic ring on the shark bite fitting that you have on the delta side of the Delta-ShowerHead connection.
2.) Carefully and slowly turn water on and see if water is exiting the fixture where you expect it to.

IF yes, water is coming out of the delta fixture then you know the flow problem is somewhere between the delta fixture and your shower head.
IF no, water is not coming out the delta fixture then you need to re-access how you connected the supply lines to the delta fixture.

Why is there Rust from tub spout and shower head


When you turn off faucets other than your tub or shower you will note that the water stops fairly abruptly. Not so with a shower head or tub spout. Some water always dribbles out even after you have turned it off. This small amount of water then evaporates leaving behind the iron that was dissolved in your water. This also happens if any faucet has a slow drip. There are products that will easily remove the rust stains. CLR, Iron Out, or Iron Ike are all good products that will remove the stain. Available at hardware stores, plumbing supply houses, and, ugh, Home Depot or Lowes. Please support your local business owners by purchasing there.

My shower head comes on all the time


two possible causes. 1- make sure the valve body is installed with with shower mark on the valve body facing up. 2 - if you used pex pipe and fittings to stub out for the tub spout this will restrict the flow sending water to the shower, '' change out pex pipe and replace with copper or galvanized pipe

You will have water coming out of the shower head when you have really good water pressure. There might be more water volume coming out through the valve then what the tub spout can handle and in turn sends the water up to your shower head. When you fill your tub try turning the water only half way on not at full pressure, does this keep the water from coming out of the shower head? Most likely your valve has a 3/4" supply line while your shower head and tub have only a 1/2" supply line. Sounds like you have more volume to the valve than what the tub spout can handle. You might consider one of two things: 1) you can put a water regulator on the main supply line going into the house to lower your pressure, or 2) change out the supply line to the tub spout, increasing it from 1/2" to 3/4". Let me know whats going on.

On new Moen shower faucet, when I turn on faucet, water drips from shower also.


The faucet was installed upside down.
The shower riser pipe in the wall is to short( the distance between the faucet and shower head).
One of the biggest problems is if your shower faucet was installed with Pex pipe to the tub spout. Pex pipe will restrict the flow and force the water back up and out of the shower head.
The tub spout must be piped with at least 1/2 brass pipe nipples and fittings, or 5/8 OD. copper pipe and fittings.
Hope this helps, if you further questions please let us know.

Try unscrewing the shower head and remove the little black water saver in the rear but while you have it off turn on water just to make sure water makes it up to the shower head with pressure
