Hi, heres my problem:

For the last year (as long as we have owned this condo), the shower head on our Grohe system (I think it is a tempersafe model?) could only function at full capacity if we turned the water control handle on only slightly and then pulled the diverter up (which is on the spout). Now, not even that works and water comes out of both the shower head and spout when I pull up on the diverter. Does anyone know how to fix this problem? Do I have to remove the spout to fix/replace a part? or is the problem up behind the handle?

Thanks!

I've not tried it, but many people seem to recommend the Delta spout...it seems their divertor works quite well.

Spouts are one of two types, either screw on, or push on. If there is a notch or hole in the bottom, you may need a mirror to check, there should be a set screw that must be loosened to then slide the thing off. It could be an allen screw, or a slotted. If there is no notch, then it is almost certainly a screw on spout. The type you have will direct you to what would be easiest to replace, but you could probably do either....depends on what's sticking out of the wall once you have it off.
