 moentrol vertical spa
Author: Millerde3 (VA)

I just purchased a new home a few months ago that has the Moen Kingsley moentrol vertical spa shower installed in the master bath. For whatever reason, the shower lost all pressure and I'm not sure why? I've tried turning the value on with the body spray on/off with no avail. What can I do to recovery the pressure? everything else (sink, tub) in the bath works fine.

Thanks
Eric

Don't think so. I had just used it the night before with no problems. The shower has a divert handle that's used to direct the water between the shower head and the 4-body sprayer. I wonder if there is a position when using the body sprayer that could cause a lose in pressure?

Not if the piping is installed the way it is supposed to be done.

Okay, after further investigation, I noticed the 3-functioning handle that diverts the water between the shower head and the body sprayers is also a STOP. I didn't notice this until reading diagrams, but this handle pulls in and out, hence the three functions. In is Stop and out is open. Just FYI... Thanks!

There should NEVER be a "stop/off" position for a diverter valve.
