Sounds like diverter valve which is your shower handle valve is bad take it apart and check out and replace it if possible because that transfer water to shower head.

I'm not sure what brands my faucet or handles are.


You can remove the center (Diverter valve) without turning water off, Will need deep well socket. Check the o rings and or washers and replace or take valve to Home depot to match with new. If you can't find one there go to local plumbing supply or ace. I turn hot then cold on and off real Quick while the valve is out just to clear anything that might be in lines. stand to the side or you will get wet! You might want to get new hot and cold valves while your at it just make sure to turn off water at meter before you remove them.

System won't switch to shower


You need a diverter in your spout. The spout will screw off and the new one will screw on. Lift the ball while the water is running and it will divert the water to the shower.

I bought a tub/shower valve system from lowes. When I turn on the faucet for the tub, the water comes out the tub faucet and the shower head at the same time. Is this a defective valve? Everything seems...


it sounds like the tub filler itself. When you pull the knob up it's supposed to divert the water to the shower, if it's coming out both, I'd look at that piece, inexpensive and easy to replace

I have an american standard shower knobs for cold and hot with a center control that directs to shower. Tub faucet leaks. How do I fix this?


Hi,
Pull the knob off...usually the screw is behind a cover in the center of the knob...
Behind the knob you will find a nut that is the packing nut ... this is what keeps the water from running out around the stem...turn that nut clockwise a quarter to a half turn or until snug...
this iwll fix your leak...

Water comes from both the shower head and bath tub faucet when bath is turnd on and wont turn off when shower is on


if it is standard shower where you pull the knob up when water is running. the pull knob lifts a flap to shut off water to bottom faucet it proably has some buildup on the flap clean well with some clr or other calcium cleaner like it so the flap gets a clean seal on downspout

Water sprays out the diverter


Remove hot/cold button in handle, remove screw/pull off handle. Remove the two screws in the wall plate/remove plate. Use a wrench to remove the diverter assembly. Get new diverter assy and reinstall eveything. You don't need to turn off the water.

My 3 handle bathtub fauset [price pfisher] cycles hot and cold


You will need to either replace center "shower diverter"assembly or a quicker fix would be to remove old tub water fill spout and replace with a "pull up diverter knob" type water spout. Cost about 10 dollars Hdepot Pull Knob to divert water to shower when showering.
