Question about Home
Posted by Anonymous on
There should be a water shut off either in the shower head or in the tap itself that is stuck open.. If it was working right the shower would not let water out when filling the tub.

One of two issues. Either the shower valve was installed upside down or there is a twin ell ( Old School Diverter) Partially plugged. Odds are the valve is upside down.
Good Luck, Phil

The valve is installed upside down and needs to be reversed. There is a diverter in the valve that gives the spout priority. When the valve is upside down it gives the shower head priority. Thats why it runs without the diverter being activated. You will need to get in the wall from one side or the other. Cut the valve out and either flip the faucet Or change the direction of the diverter depending on the style of valve.
Good Luck, Phil

Does the tub spout water flow stop when the shower knob is pulled?
Was the systems pipping flushed before the shower head was installed?
It may be clogged, remove the shower head and then attempt to operate. If it is clogged you will see debris trapped in the screen at its connection point. The shower head can be disassembled - cleaned - reassembled
Is the shower head an adjustable type, that may be in the off position?
