Sounds like washer pieces. Your faucet has rubber parts and they can eventually fail, Look also at the shut off valves, as they break apart (the washers) eventually.

What brand plumbing in shower

most taps for bathrooms have replaceable spigots and handles of various design that suit the shaft. I would be talking with a plumber as to what you have and as to why any spigot assy will not fit. Even if you have ceramic inserts they still fit the tap proper.

American standard jet bath tub black particles coming out of jets

The problem you are experiencing is common to many jetted bathtubs.It is a result of dried bathing water in the tub. There are a couple of solutions to resolve this ongoing problem.
  1. Use your tub more frequently as the water will not have time to fester in the pipes.
  2. Use a cleaning solution made for cleaning the pipes on jetted bathtubs once every three months.

When I run water through this tub spout (diverter in down position) I still have water leaking from the showerhead. I have seen water from a tub spout when the shower is on, but not the other way around....

After you turn water off in about 30 secs pull the diverter up and leave for a few minutes This should allow the water left in shower piipe to drain out the spigot

We began replaceing our galvanized pipes. Since

The problem is that when you disturb the galv. pipes, the gunk inside breaks loose, and travels to the faucets, gets stuck, and limits the volume of water that comes out.
If possible open the lines at the service valves, and force water through the spigot to fluch out the faucet. The service value could also be partially clogged, keep that in mind

Black gunk in bathroom faucet screen

Okay, you have black gunk in the screens of your water faucets.....This is usually found in homes with old metal galvanized water lines that have a well or Hard Water. To permenantly get rid of this problem you should have a water softener installed and replace old water lines. If you already have a water softener then you should replace all of your old metal water lines with Copper or Plastic (Plastic being the cheaper way to go). After many years of use, the inside of the galvanized metal water pipes get a Gunky Skummy Build up on the inside of the pipes from minerals and particals in the water, usually in older homes and farm houses. You will see this Gunk if you take a section of water line apart and look in it. There is no really Cheap fix for this, But if you and a Partner a fairly handy, you can do it yourself with CPVC Plastic pipe and Glue. By doing it yourself you will save alot of money on the cost of labor. If you can afford it, Hire it out to your local handyman or plumber. After replacing the water lines you should no longer get the Gunk build up and may even notice a bit more water pressure....I hope this helps in assisting you to the solution......Joe

Check the drain spigot that the drain hose attaches to under the sink/tub. There may be a blockage in the spigot.
