Probably a defective, corroded or half stuck diverter. This is the part that diverts the water either to the tub or shower. Disassemble, inspect, repair or replace.

Fix porcher reprise shower diverter


Sounds like your diverter is defective. You need part #M962110-YYY0A
DIVERTER KIT. (replace your YYY with the color code of your shower)

This is an American Standard part, you can find it online (unfortunately expensive.)

Alternately, you can try calling American Standard and tell them you need the diverter WASHER for your unit. Maybe they'll send you a free one, and you can simply rebuild your diverter.

No water flow from new american standard marquette showerhead


I think fitting of your shower is not proper. You have to fit it properly if you can or you can call a nearest Plumber to solve your problem.

Installed new tub/shower valve, water comes out of showerhead when water is turned on even though spout is open


the diverter valve is probably bad. put a new one in. the valve cuts off the water to shower, while running bath water.

Just installed a waterpic shower head, half the water comes out of faucet and half the shower head, any solutions?


If your tub spout has a knob that you lift to divert the water to the waterpic then replace it with a Delta service part #RP17453 pull down spout. It always sends 100% of the water to the shower head and will always snug tight to the wall.

Took off shower head water barely comming out but have pressure from fauset


Hello
Is there a water restrictor in the shower head?A small round disc usually white or clear.
This could be clogged.

Next,take a old toothbrush and some comet cleanser and scrub the showerhead holes,this will get any hard water deposits out of the holes.

New House The women is complating that then she shower at any of her bathroom tub shower unit the faucet become cold for a little while on all her Moen chateau faucet. We have change all valve cartrige


The problem is most likely with "the back pressure from the flow restrictor in the showerhead causing the spool in the cartridge to sense a false pressure drop. This is forcing the spool to shift, restricting a full hot water temperature from coming out." Believe it or not, I got this information from Moen. Their solution was to send out a valve without the multi settings of the original and that didn't work very well. I can only tell you that I used an older showerhead without the water saver feature and the valve and cartridge worked fine. The problem your having is with the cartridge/showerhead combination and short of using an older showerhead there is not a satisfactory solution. Maybe your plumber has a better solution.
