Leaky Faucet
 
Hi I am new here, and I am so glad I found this place!!

The problem is I used to be very good Miss fix it, but I recently handed over the wrenches to myhusband. Now he is working remote and I don't have the knowledge anymore.:p

My shower worked this morning. I went out and bought a water pik hand held shower head. I instaled it the way they said to, now my bathtub faucet leaks when I turn it on.:mad: I thought that is was because of the head itself. I reapplied the original head>>> Still leaks.

What happend and how do I fix this frustrating problem??

Thanks for your time:help:

How do you switch over to the shower?

The diverter is leaking and knowing whether you have 3 handle, a diverter on the spout or, diverter in the mixer gets more info.

If it is in the mixer more details as to make and model gets even more info...

You would pull down a ring on the faucet. (CHEAP PLASTIC FAUCET)

Take pictures/video of your situation. The info given isn't enough.
