I'm having a plumbing issue somewhat different from most I see posted. When I run the bath faucet, the diverter works fine and there is no leaking from the showerhead. However, when I run the shower, there is significant water flow from the bath spigot. For some reason it's worst (almost full flow) when the diverter is turned all the way to the shower side, but I can reduce it a little by setting the diverter back, to maybe two thirds of the way between bath and shower (if I move any further there is insufficient water from the showerhead). Anyone see this as well? Is it simply a case of replacing the diverter (which I've done before, when I couldn't switch flow at all) or something else?
Edit: This is a new issue, it just started in the last week or so. I replaced the diverter a couple of years ago. Since posting earlier today, I removed the diverter to have a look. Everything looks fine with the diverter, but the problem may be in the actual mixing valve that the diverter fits into. There seems to be a rubber lining of some kind in the valve (not sure what function it serves) that has a tear or hole in it. Any idea what that is? Now the rubber seems to be preventing the diverter from fitting tightly into the valve again. Thanks for any ideas anyone has.
