: System has a center valve that diverts the water fror the faucet to the shower head by turning the valve to the right. Diverter will not completely divert water to shower head. Removed it and put new rubber washer on end of diverter. Appeared that may have been repaired prior as house is about 35 years old. Found piece of what appeared to be a rubber washer and removed it. Attempted to reassemble diverter but can't get the water to divert to shower as much as it did prior to my attempt at repair. HELP!
Rick, You may have a piece of washer stuck in the diverter. You need to rig up a air hose to the shower head arm and with the faucet apart try and blow this crud out.Back washing it would do it but you would have to get water from a hose from another sourse as the faucet would be apart.
