I replaced the diverter stem in my Price Pfister 3-handle shower unit--twice. The first attempt was
with an aftermarket Danco diverter obtained at the local hardware store. However, it allowed water
to flow to the tub faucet when the shower was supposed to be in operation. Figuring that the Danco
diverter was less than superior quality, I went to a plumbing supply house and ask for the
Price Pfister diverter. The guy pulled one for me--unpackaged and brand unknown--and I figured
it ought to be the right one. Unfortunately, it has the same problem.
So, I took a closer look at these two new diverters. I did a little measuring. On both the new
I'm perplexed by this. Shouldn't aftermarket diverters (or valves for that matter) fit exactly?
