    Hi all, can you divert a three control shower to two control without removing the main shower body? I'd like to put the diverter on the spout. thanks

    No, changing the valve body is about it....

    If I did anything I would consider upgrading to a pressure balanced valve...

    I like consistant temperatures even when others in the home use water....
