Recently my wife told me that the shower diverter in the guest bathroom was leaking from the bath spout when the diverter knob was pulled up. I looked at it to determine that it was a Kohler diverter, then without thinking any more I ordered a replacement.
When I got the part today I was a little confused as I couldn't see how the diverter sealed against leaking out the bath spout. But I trusted it, as it was a genuine, new part, and who am I to second guess Kohler. So I installed it, and then I saw this:
The diverter valve leaks like a sieve when the shower is running.
Is this an expected behavior with a Kohler diverter valve? I've never paid much attention to that particular shower, so I don't know if what I am seeing now was always what happened.
While this question seems to have the same title as my situation, it doesn't appear comparable.
