How do I remove stuck kohler tub divertor that leaks
Posted by Chris on June 30, 2004 at 14:12:17:
I have a wonderful old shower/bath kohler faucet -- that has three knobs Hot, Cold, Divertor. When you try to divert the water from the
bath to the shower half of the water continues to run to the bath, making the shower pressure very weak.
I have removed the knob and the stem nut and gently (as not to break anything) tried to screw out and
also pull straight out the stem, to no avail. I figure there are lime deposits on the inside of this divertor.
Would it be possible for you to instruct me on the proper technique on removing the divertor so that I can
proceed with confidence. That way if I still break something I will know that I was at least using the right

Thank you for you assistance
Please email me with any answers
