In response to Re: Shower Diverter Valve
: Dear Terry,
: I recently install a new American Standard 3 valve bath/shower faucet.I am
: unable to completely stop water flow from the shower head when the bath faucet
: is in use. The shower flows well when the diverter is turned
: to select the shower. How do I remove the diverter to inspect/replace it?
: The faucet is a modern washerless cartridge type design. The stem
: for the diverter valve appears to be made of a nylon/plastic
: material. Any help you can provide is gratefully appreciated.
: The faucet has been in service about 3 months.

I'm having the exact problem. Our diverter valve is 40yrs old. The end is stripped, so I am in search of an Elger model locally. In the meantime I reinstalled it and it drips from the faucet- a handle setup..Should the central stem be all the way in when it's put back into the wall or did I miss a gasket or ring somewhere. I didn't sceal. Thanks for the advice. I hope to solve this myself. Jeana
