    Hi

    We have a Moen single control bathtub/shower control that has a rod that you push in to divert the water to the shower head. Once the rod is pushed in, the water pressure keeps the diverter in the "shower" diverter state. If the water is turned off the diverter automatically returns to the "bathtub" state.

    In our case, while the shower is in operation, if someone in the house turns on a tap, the slight drop in pressure is enough to cause the diverter to fall back to the "bathtub" state. Is there some way to fix this problem shy of a new bathtub/shower water control system or higher pressure?

    One thing to do would be to find out why the pressure is dropping so drastically.
