Tub spout diverter


Check the basement. There may be a valve (two valves) that someone partially closed in the past to limit how much water was used for a bath.

What to do if i can't stop the water flowing from the shower spout and there's little water pressure coming from the shower head and a hand held shower?


One rule I live by: more parts, more problems. Sounds to me that the plumbing/valves were not insalled properly. If you hired a profesional plumber, have them fix it. I am a licensed profesional plumber and I offer a 1 year warranty on all my work. If the contractor did the work and does not hold a plumbing license, that person is still responsible and may have to suffer legal consequenses.

You need to replace the spray diverter valve. It is located on the main body, below the spout, in the sleeve at the base of the spout. The main pivotint sleeve of the spigot. The valve is usually in the rear.

Why does the water not flow from shower valve when turned on?


Do you have water coming out of the tub spout and not the shower head? If so how does the water get directed to the shower head,is it by pulling up the diverter on the tub spout?If water is still coming out of the tub spout then the diverter is bad and the tub spout needs to be replaced.

Water comes out of kitchen tap then slows down to nothing at all comin out


If the aerator is clear of debris, there is a valve of sorts in the center of the faucet that diverts water to a spray nozzle (the sprayer on a hose that would be next to the faucet). Even if you don't have the sprayer, most all kitchen faucets have this diverter valve. It's a bit like the thing (in a bathtub/shower combination) that switches the flow from the tub spout to the shower head.

Sometimes, something will work its way into the diverter so that it stops the flow to the tap. It could be a piece of debris (mineral flake, rust flake, etc.) that can be backflushed out. This would require removing the faucet and removing the main valve assembly. Long story short, think about replacing the faucet if the diverter valve is acting up.

Water quits flowing


There is a little popper in the spout area. You need to remove the top handle and slide the spout off. The popper is in the main tube coming up. It.s a standard part at most big box hardware stores and it costs less than $10.
