    I have some what new tub faucet with a diverter. the old was replaced due to sticking in the up position (so when you turn on the water , you get sprayed with water) . Now this new one is doing the same thing. I have taken it apart and found no deposit or any reason to cause it to stick. Any ideas? :mad:

    I assume you mean a tub spout with a diverter, rather than a faucet with a diverter. If so, it is just because it is an inexpensive one and not intended to work forever. Get a Delta or other brand name one, even though it will be more costly.

    yes it is a cheap one, but they should last more than a couple months shouldn't they? also thanks for the advice.

    Yes, they should, but that is why they are inexpensive. At least it is new enough that they should exchange it.
