I am having a problem with the shower diverter in my apartment. HAve contacted land lord and he said he would send someone out, well that was 4 months ago tired of waiting.
Here is the setup. Its a 3 knob shower (hot, Cold, Diverter knob in middle)
When I turn the knob to divert water to the shower head I get water out of the shower head but there is still a lot of water coming out of the faucet that just goes straight down the drain. Plus I figure Im losing a lot of water pressure and using a lot more water than I should making my bill higher. there is enough water comming out of the shower head that I can take a shower and its useable but the wasted water that comes out of the faucet is my issue
What could be the problem. There is not an access to get to the back of the faucets (unless I cut through the wall and I dont want to HAVE to do that).
I am a pretty handy person and usually can take on what ever needs to be done, just looking for a little direction before I start as this is the only shower/bath we have in the appartment. Or should I just pester the hell outa my landlord until he calls a plumber to come out and look at this for me.
