    Diverter valve problem
    Hi All,

    Had a problem with the diverter valve knurled end being worn, so I changed the whole valve(Danco replacement for Sayco). With the new valve, I have low pressure & also when putting water towards the shower head, it still comes out the lower spicket. How does that happen.

    Thanks in advance, Bob

    Re: Diverter valve problem
    Sounds like you may have knocked some lime or other crud loose working on the pipes and it is now clogging the valve. You may need to take it apart and clean it.
