The handle broke off on our diverter valve all the way down to the nub. Do I need to replace the entire valve or can I get a handle? What is the process to replace?

SOURCE: Handle and pin broke the valve stem. Have a replacement.

Hammer and punch...drift out the pin. Be careful to note the orientation of the handle to the key assemble, assembling it backwards realigns the settings on the valve backwards...not a good thing.

SOURCE: the handle pulled out of

Not really ... the Knife Valve assembly is cheap enough to purchase and simple enough to change ... fix it is my recommendation. Find the valve at a RV parts place or at your pool parts place.

SOURCE: I have a Hayward S166T sand filter. I changed out

Your best bet is to replace the whole top assembly as the plastic top probally is etched and bad.

Old Moen shower diverter


You will have to replace the shower diverter button. Remove the handle, remove the faceplate, and the diverter will screw out. Any plumbing supply that carries Moen products will have a replacement button for your valve

I replaced a spider gasket on my PAC FAB 2# Multiport valve and when I put it back together the sequence is off. Filter mark is actually the waste port and waste is actually the Filter port.... how do you...


There should be a screw hole in the valve lid that has a flat edge on one side (outside edge). The valve body has a matching flat edge that aligns with it.
In the event the handle was removed from the lid and diverter to replace the diverter o-rings it is not uncommon for people to put the handle back on the diverter 180 degrees of where it should be. The pointer on the handle should be aligned above the open port of the diverter. This is true of all multiport valves except the Hayward four way valve.

Which way does water diverter go on after rebuild kit? does opening go under filter or backwash?


The handle points back over the flat portion of the diverter with a hole in the center, making the little nub point towards the raised cup-shaped portion of the diverter.

I have a Delta Tub/Spout Pull Down Diverter that has a pretty persistent drip. The HOT and COLD handles are turned off and seem to be as tight as they can be. After doing some research online I believe...


If your Delta RP17453 Pull-Down Diverter Tub Spout stops dripping after 5 minutes, your ok. If it never stops dripping, you need to replace delta faucet cartridge(s) behind the handle(s). This is were the water turns on and off and stops the water flow to the tub spout.

Delta faucets are some of the easiest to repair, and parts are usually available at any hardware store or home center. If you have a two handle faucet, replace both delta seats and springs and stems. If you have a single handle Delta faucet, replace the entire cartridge.

Need to know how diverter works and which way insert in same shou


Hi,

When you pull on the handle a flap or little valve blocks the flow of water to the spout, making it run to the shower head
Long story short, since I've spent the entire day at different hardware stores, and websites looking for the answer, and figured it out... before taking the advice of so many and replacing the entire spout..
The little black rubber washer is the value. When water pressure pushes against the hole, it actually pushes this black valve out just enough to stop the water from flowing, and the water flows to the shower head. If water is pouring out, try cleaning this black valve with toothpaste, as someone on another website recommended, and reinsert the valve. But don't push it all the way in. Water need to get behind this valve in order to function properly.


Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Pull down shower diverted works, but allows bypass into tub


The diverter is supposed to leak a little bit, so it will disengage after you turn off the water. If the water is leaking out a little, that's normal. But if it is really leaking out you may need to replace the entire spout.

Not able to pull up the shower valve


The valve is in upside down. Sounds like the shower head runs all the time and thats what fills the tub? The valve needs to be flipped OR the diverter in the valve needs to be switched to the other side of the valve. If this is a one handled valve it is installed upside down. UP is indicated on the valve.

The valve can be reused just turned over.

Hi rbyerly,

I'm Harvey the Master Plumber.

Your problem is:
remodeled bathroom,installed new moen valve and hardware. Now water is coming from both the shower head and the faucet when the diverter is in the down postion. Question; Is this a single handle or three handle diverter? Assuming it's a three handle, it should just be a mater of adjusting the center handle. If single, the diverter is in the spout not the valve. I don't know how to direct you further without specifics. Feel free contact me again!

Thank you,
