    Default What causes shower/tub diverter valve stems to go bad ?

    Just replaced the push button valve stem on my kohler shower/tub diverter and all is good - no more sticking valve.

    My memory MUST be playing tricks on me, cause I swear this may the 2nd time I've done this due to sticking valve....


    FWIW, it's a Kohler rite temp

    They are mechanical devices which wear due to use. Sometimes they fail because they are used frequently, and other times because they are NOT used.
