Question about Plumbing

1 Answer

When I pour a bath the shower comes on as well as the spout but only when the handle is turned to the middle position (warm). Turned all the way to hot or all the way to cold it seems o.k. I have a Moen single handled set-up with spout.

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..

How do I get it to switch from bath mode to shower mode?!


If there is no divert er on the wall where the hand is then it is on the spout. The spout can have a little round chrome to pull or where the water come out you can pull it. This will make the water go up to the shower. Good Luck

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.

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 !

Hot water on bathroom faucet won't get hot only luke warm


That is a type where the water is mixed inside the valve and the valve has gotten worn or loose inside. Replace it or take it apart to see what isn't working properly.

Water coming from showerhead and bath spout at same time


Have whoever installed the shower set come back and fix the diverter. It should be a relatively simple adjustment.
