    Default Diverter?

    I have a kitchen sink with a side sprayer. When I use the sprayer, the water in the faucet does not stop running. Is the part I need a diverter? How is it installed?

    It is a problem with the diverter. There in different locations on different faucets. If you can tell me what faucet you have I can help you get the correct one and give you instructions on how to replace it.

    Where the heck can you get a diverter? I need to replace mine and nobody has it. All I can tell you is that it's a Delta that's about 12 years old, single lever with side mount hose.
    I suffer from CDO ... Its like OCD, but in alphabetical order, LIKE IT SHOULD BE!!!

    Most plumbing supply houses should have them. You may be able to get one at the big box store. They may not know what they look like. Here is the one you need. To install it you have to remove the spout and it's in the front under the spout. Just pull the old one out and install the new one.

    Hmm. The link changed. I can now see a DELTA Diverter Assembly. I can use that for my Kohler faucet?

    Here is a PDF file showing your faucet. Go to page 14 that shows the break down of your faucet. The diverter is part # 75878.

    Thanks. I'm a 64-yr-old lady--do you remove the spout (like the Delta) and is the part inside?

    Yes you do remove the spout. I would also replace the O rings at the same time you replace the diverter. Just pay attention to the order in which the parts come out.
