      Re: Shower and spigot both on

      Update to my dilema....

      I replaced the divertor yesterday (yes you can do it without taking apart the wall...just a lot of cursing).

      Result...nil...water still comes out of shower and spigot.

      So it's not:
      spigot
      divertor
      shower head

      plumbing behinf the wall creating pressure issue to spigot?

      Ugh!

          Posts like this remind me there is an actual value to having a plumber do plumbing.

            You man real plumbers don't put Maax tubs in ?

            What is up with the location of the t/s valve?

            And the exposed stack next to the tub?

              I don't know how to say this any clearer. YOU CAN'T PIPE THE TUB SPOUT WITH PEX. The pex adaptor is TOO RESTRICTIVE, and forces water back up the shower spout. YOU NEED TO RE-PIPE THE TUB SPOUT. Use copper this time.

                I think he's afraid to break the news to the homeowner that he'll have to reopen the wall.

                  I missed the fact that it's ABS below CI...someone else pointed that out earlier on the thread.

                    Exposed stack...a shelf going behind it (long story)



                    Question:
                    Does flex piping cause this issue (ie. should ahve used copper) or..

                    Improperly installed piping cause this issue?

                    ???

                      Copper...

                      note.
                      I put a small shutoff on the shower head (no problem)

                          I've always felt the "good plumbing practice" was to give the tub spout the largest ID practical.

                            yet another case of a homeowner that does not like the answer.

                            Sorry, but you screw up, you fix.

                              Depending upon how thick his walls are framed he may be able to fit a copper drop tub in without opening the wall up. I have been able to do that in the past just solder it up and slide it in. Make sure you use a drop eared elbow, open up the hole for where your stubout will come out to about 1" or 1-1/4" and you can sometimes get some screws in there to secure it..... that is if it was braced correctly which i kind of doubt based upon everything else that was done wrong!

                                ain't gonna happen buddy, he's either going to live with it or go with the shower head shutoff rather than fix it right.
