I have a shower faucet that is diverting only half the water to the
Shower head and half is still coming out.
behind the spout on the faucet are the letters WE in the hole behind
the spout head on the bottom
how do i remove thos so i can repair the diverter?
it doesnt seem like it wants to come off
the diverter is a pull up type on the top of the spout
Yes, counterclockwise. Amount of pressure- well, yeah, that is the question.
Depends how long it's been on, did they use teflon tape, hardness of the
water, etc. It should come off by hand, even if it takes a lot of pressure.
You can get a little extra leverage by placing a screwdriver, or some other
handle type device into the spout. Go slow. You should not need a wrench.
note: if you have a problem finding the replacement diverter spout,
just plug it and all the water will go to the showerhead.
maybe it's a washcloth and a bungee cord while you wait for a plumber.
or a temporary installation of a pipe nipple with a ball valve.
you can look at quite a variety of plumbing parts in the virtual
