Hello...hope someone has an idea that might be helpful....
I just bought a new home. My master bath has the shower head, cold faucet
knob, hot faucet knob, diverter knob in between the H&C knobs, and one
outlet faucet at the bottom.
When we moved in, the diverter didn't send the hot water fully through to
the shower head; as such, we had cold showers, but hot feet, as the hot
water came out the lower faucet.
We had a plumber from our home warranty contractor come out and fix it
somewhat. Problem is, it still does have some water coming out (but not the
full on flow) from the bottom faucet - both hot and cold water. The plumber
told us that since we are on well water, this would likely be an issue
forever due to lower water pressure.
Is the plumber full of it and trying to avoid more costly and time consuming
repairs that they won't get "paid" for (under warranty), or is he right?
Also, if the plumber was correct and I'll just have to live with the
dripping, would it be possible for me to get a new outlet faucet with a
diverter "pull up thingy" that will block the flow of water, even if it
doesn't redirect it to the showerhead?
Thanks in advance for any advice,
