I would like a high quality either/or diverter valve (not both at once) to use with a shower head and a tub spout. I do not like the tub spouts with integrated diverters because they eventually leak water out the tub spout when the shower is active, and it represents an additional length of pipe for the water to travel through, slowing response to temperature adjustments.
Is there a trim and valve similar to this one (in the Tesla style) but just an either-or?
Dear John S,
Thank you for your question. The Delta Tesla 3-Setting Trim T11852-SS is designed for shower heads, hand showers and body spray connections only. If you are installing a tub spout, it has to be a diverter spout. The tub spout should be connected to the bottom port of the main valve (R10000). When the tub spout diverter is used, it will send water to the diverter valve, for the shower head, hand shower or body sprays to function.
