When I turn the knob that directs the water from the tub faucet to the shower, half of the water goes to the shower head, and the rest still goes out of the faucet to the tub. How do I get the water to go to the shower head only? Thanks!

Just like the shut off valves, the washers need to be replaced on the "third" handle. sometimes you will need to replace the "seat" as well. this requires a special tool to remove.

you will have to remove the handle and trim, and remove the valve stem.

if you can't remove, or don't feel comfortable, call a handyman. should only take about 20 minutes to replace all the washers. be sure check the "seats" too.

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.

Low water pressure from my shower.


You probably have a water flow reducer in the shower head. It is a rubber disk with a few holes in it. Just remove it and put the shower head back on. They are installed at the factory to save our environment. (Mine are all removed)

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...

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.

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.
