I installed a 937-207 chrome tub and shower set we can't figure out why we get water out of the shower when we are trying to use the tub spout..

I even remove the spout thinking it might be the issue but even with just the pipe it still comes out of both spout and shower

Water backs up to the shower when the internal dimension (ID) of the pipe between the valve and the spout is not large enough to handle the volume of water that is running through the valve. My guess is you used pex. You should have used galvanized or copper pipe. The ID of galvanized pipe is 5/8"; copper pipe is just over a 1/2" ID. This will fix the problem. If this pipe is no longer accessible, you may be able to fix this one other way, by limiting the volume of water that is supplied to the valve. Remove the handle and the escutcheon plate. Turn screw on each side of the valve clockwise until fully closed; this will shut the water off to the valve. Now, put the handle back on and turn the faucet on full mix; water should not be running. Now turn each screw 90 degrees; water will begin to flow. Wait 20 seconds to see if water backs up to the shower. If not, turn both screws another 90 degrees and wait 20 seconds again to see if it backs up to shower. Continue this until it backs up to the shower. When it backs up, close each screw equally until it stops backing up.

I had the same problem. My building manager showed me that you have to yank the circular portion at the end the of spout where the water comes out downward and the water will be diverted to the showerhead.

2 things can be happing here depending on the age of the tub spout. If the spout is more than 5 years old, you may need to replace it. if not that old then you may have a screen filter blockage in the shower head itself. remove the shower head from the shower neck and see if there is anything in the filter. while you have the head removed, try the tub spout again and see if problem continues. this should guide you in the next step to either replace the tub spout or just clean the shower head screen filter. Hope this helps.

You need to replace the tub diverter/spout. There are two kinds, I hope you have the kind with
an allen head set screw on the bottom side of the spout near the shower wall. These are super
easy to replace ! Loosen the set screw, twist the spout a little and it should slide off. When installing
the new spout, smear some vaseline on the copper pipe sticking out, this will help seal the new O rings in the spout.

The other kind of spout has pipe threads in it. They can be a little more tricky. I got called to a
house one time. The plastic female threads on the spout cracked when the plumber installed it.
The water ran down the inside of the wall and did damage down stairs. The leak could not be seen
until the sheet rock down stairs fell down from being soaked. You need to put some pipe dope on the threads, then tighten the spout on by hand, so as not to scratch it with a pump pliers.

I hope this helps !

When I run water through this tub spout (diverter in down position) I still have water leaking from the showerhead. I have seen water from a tub spout when the shower is on, but not the other way around....


After you turn water off in about 30 secs pull the diverter up and leave for a few minutes This should allow the water left in shower piipe to drain out the spigot

I just installed a series 13/14 single valve tub/shower faucet. When I try to turn on just the tub spout, the shower comes on as well. What could be causing this?


most likely problem is to much pressure in water lines if u have shut off valves on to feed lines turn them down a little will decrease pressure to the valve other problem the spout {tub} diverted is partially engaged, loose,debris or defective if u can reremove the spout and observe the valve for proper function

When the shower valve is engaged I still get water out of the tub spout and limited water out of the shower head. I just replaced the cartridge thinking that might be the problem but no luck


it sound's like you need to replace the tub spout.there should be a set screw on the bottom of spout loosen and twist off. replace with moen spout for ease of re-install.it's a real pain in the *** to try and replace -o- ring spout.

Water leaks out of shower head during tub use. valve was installed properly


The pipe to the tub spout is either restricted or the valve was placedd too high causing some of the water to come up and out of the shower head instead of it all flowing out of the spout.

Delta T13090 faucet shower head working at the same time.


The only possible explaination is that the water is finding it easier to go up than down. Water is lazy, just like me. ;)

Use an allen key to remove the tub spout. It's underneath and awkward. Once the allen key is loose, the spout just slides off. Try running the water. This may solve your problem and all you'll need is a new tub spout. If not.....

Turn the water off to the house.

Use an allen key to remove the handle.

Use a phillips to remove the trim plate (2 screws). Cut the silicone around the trim if it's there (which, in a proper installation it shouldn't be, but...)

Unscrew the nut (usually chrome) holding the cartridge into the brass body of the valve. The cartridge pulls straight out. Check for restriction in the ports of the cartridge itself. Check for restriction in the line going down to the tub spout. If you can't find anything, replace the cartridge.

Reassemble & Enjoy!

Does the tub spout water flow stop when the shower knob is pulled?

Was the systems pipping flushed before the shower head was installed?

It may be clogged, remove the shower head and then attempt to operate. If it is clogged you will see debris trapped in the screen at its connection point. The shower head can be disassembled - cleaned - reassembled

Is the shower head an adjustable type, that may be in the off position?

Good luck
