3570 has shut off valves on the valve itself. Allows you to swap out 1225 cartridge without shutting off water to house

I did mine with clear silicone. Everything must be bone dry before application. Just push the escutcheon flush to the wall and apply silicone around the outside where it meets the wall. The key to a good job with silicon is to make sure you don't over apply. Nothing is worse than having silicone spread out an inch past where it's supposed to be, especially ...

"kitchen and bath" (or "tub & tile") (mildew-resistant) caulk (with a gap at 6 o'clock) is the stock approach. Some folks also use a thick ring of plumbers putty (inside the caulk at the edge), but that is contra-indicated with natural stone; unless, perhaps you use a putty that purports to be suitable. Oatey (a brand) says, apprarently referring only ...

There are rods readily available that are held up by tension, such as this one The rod is actually made up of two rods, one inside the other. The rod expands in length as you twist the ends. You could bolt a short u-channel to one end that could hold it centered on the edge of the glass. Images and links are for illustration only, not an endorsement of ...

If the shower diverter knob is on the faucet itself, then that can also happen if there is low water pressure to the shower. The type of spout you have uses some of the water pressure to seal the gaps that would otherwise allow water to come out of the spout. The easiest thing to try would be to simply unscrew the faucet from the pipe and replace with ...

As much as we'd rather avoid it, it is still better to pull it out and redo it right. I cannot see what the flooring material is underneath, but it looks like wood, which isn't a good option without a concrete backing board laid on top to reduce flexing. Those walls should also have concrete backing board for better waterproofing and reduced moisture and ...

I'm guessing the diverter is built into the spout? If that's the case, the diverter simply blocks the "pipe", so water flows to the shower instead. If it's leaking when the shower is on, then it's not entirely blocking the "pipe". You can either repair the spout you have, or replace it with a new spout. Without knowing more about the type of spout you ...

I wouldn't recommend a quick-fix. There's probably a fair amount of mold between the tile and the pan, and if that's the case, you don't want to attempt the fix yourself unless you're qualified for mold mitigation.

Long shot: perhaps this is one of those energy-saving shower heads that automatically turns off when the water supply has warmed up. You then flip a level on the shower head to restore flow for the duration of the shower. This is for people who turn on the shower to let it warm up while they go do something else; it stops water waste after the water heats ...

I got it replaced with a new one and it works perfectly. Even after detaching it, the diverter didn't move.
