Re: Tub spout has running water!
There is not likely anything you can do. Most tub/shower combo valves today rely on a gate within the tub spout to block the water from exiting the spout and forcing it up and out through the shower head. This pull up gate is not a tight seal, it is merely designed to create enough resistance that the water defies gravity.
You can try changing the tub spout, but odds are it will do little good.
