 price pfister shower diverter
Author: surrealiana (NC)

I have a price pfister shower faucet model # 17196-0100G that is a single handle shower/faucet combination and I have unscrewed and removed the pull up knob that makes the diverter come into place and make the water come out of the shower (long story as to why I did this). I'm looking for a diagram for this model so that I can see if I can figure out if I lost a crucial part to make this work. Does anyone know where I can find a diagram like this? I have search the internet and can't find one.

They are a throw away item, but if you can figure out how it was assembled, before you took it apart, it MIGHT work.

These days, you can purchase a generic replacement diverter stem. Works on most tub spouts, you decide if it is worth fiddling with.

If it fits "MANY" tub spouts then they are all made by the same company.

I have seen it fit old PP, generics such as Danco or ProFlo. Looks like it would fit the old Moens. Strangely enough, it just seems to work.

It would not commonly be used by plumbers, but there is an overwhelming demand for it in the apartment/hotel arenas, where drips are not tolerated and labor is not an issue, but $6 to $20 to buy new tub spouts every 6 months IS an issue.

Spend $40.00 and get one that will last for decades.

Nothing lasts for decades in low rent apts, or flea bag hotels. Guest often take the tub spout and lav pop up with them! This is not a joke, I hear it all the time.

And better hotels have to undergo flag inspections. At the least sign of grime or mineral deposits, they get nailed. Then the maid crew tends to scour the crome too often with bad stuff, so no matte what kind of spout you use, you are going to replace it often! Same for the rub flange, and the handles.
