In response to Re: shower diverter/ faucets
: : : : Hey Terry,
: : : : I had a problem with water coming out the faucet AND the showerhead, so I replaced all the stems and seats, but I STILL have water coming out the faucet when it should all be going to the showerhead.What did I do wrong?
: : : : Please say that I used the wrong kind of seat or something easy!
: : : :

: : Terry,
: : I bought new stems for this, so I am assuming that the 950-040 part came with it! But you know what they say about assuming

: : : Tracie, Do use have a diverter spout? Or do you have a 3 handle tub/shower faucet? If you have a diverter spout change it. Dale Peck LMP

: : Hi Dale, I have the 3 handle version.

: Traci, Did you put pipe dope on the threads of the new seats? Dale

Dale, this is probably the one thing I did do right!
I MAY have forgotten the nylon washer as Terry said, so now I get to go back and look at it!
Do I need to shut off the water supply to do this?

I want to thank both of you for your fast responses and great help! If I ever need a plumber, do you guys make house calls to Sumner???
