Default cant find diverter part anywhere

I started having problems with the diverter in my shower and had someone come and look at it. They said the problem was this piece but could not find it at a couple different plumbing/hardware stores. Now they are suggesting that I need to replace the entire piping system. Was there a way to locate the exact piece I needed? Its a bit smaller than a dime in diameter. Thanks

thank you for your response. Can you help me understand why it's cheaper to replace the unit? The broken piece is so tiny yet the job to replace the entire piping system is going to run in the thousands, removing tiles, replacing piping/diverter, replacing tiles. Im assuming it will be in the thousands, I havent received a quote on it yet.

If you book a flight for me I'll do it for free, I'll catch a few rays of southern sun.
