 shower diverter
Author: w orndorff (VA)

I have a 3 knob set up on my shower, hot, cold and a diverter. I replaced all three valve stems. Hot a cold valves work great however when I divert water from the tub to the shower head some water (cold) still comes out of the tub faucet. What have I done wrong? I"m not sure of the brand name of the faucets. I used parts from Ace Hardware,the parts say they are for SAYCO. I could use a little help. Thanks!

The diverter is a "double seated valve" and therefore has to make simultaneous contact with two surfaces in the valve body. If it doesn't then water will leak through, either to the spout or shower head.

Does the diverter stem have this washer installed?
