Hello All!

After a sticky turn or two over the last several weeks, I notice now that there's a good deal of water coming out of the faucet when the center handle is set to "Shower". I think this is a pretty old fixture, and can't find any identifying marks on it - am hoping someone can tell me who made it, and whether or not the diverter replacement is a "homerowner fix".

Thanks for any help or suggestions!

might be a price pfister if stem has "P P" engrave in it. remove handles and collars to see.

PP did not have lever handles at that time. The handles are similar to the ones several companies, such as Central Brass, used so a picture of the internal stem, preferably either the hot or cold but not the diverter, might help.

Hi - thanks for the followup - I was able to free the diverter lever (assume there was some build-up of "stone" - and it seems to be working OK - thanks to all who responded - the info will be archived in my working files in case of future trouble - Cheers!
