Bath Not Cutting Off When Shower Is On?

The bath is not cutting off totally, it runs almost full out while the shower barely runs, is there a way to fix the cut off valve or whatever is not working. It’s the center turn knob not a button one that turns it from bath to shower.

You can replace the spout on the unit and that should fix it. I am assuming your shower diverter is on the spout.

If the diverter is in the valve then you will need to replace the cartridge in the shower rough valve.

Low Pressure in Tub and Shower Faucet

Question: The water in the bath / shower in our guest bathroom has started running very slowly. The water at that basin and in the rest of the house works fine. Any idea where to start?
I think your Bath/Shower cartridge is clogged up. You can buy a replacement shower valve cartridge at a home store. First, turn off the water main to the home or the bathroom. Then, take off the handle and shower trim. Then you will see a cartridge that can be removed either buy unscrewing or pulling out a retainer ring.

Take the old cartridge to the hardware store and match it up. If your shower is an off brand, this may be harder to find.
