    Default Squealing Shower

    I'm having a problem with my bath and shower faucet. Whenever I pull the plunger on my faucet to switch to shower mode, I get a loud squealing noise from the faucet itself. Sometimes when I play with the plunger a bit I can make the sound go away but is is extremely obnoxious. Any help?

    Sounds as though the diverter is the cause of the noise. Replacing this diverter should take care of the issue.
    Depending on which type of spout/diverter you have .... either simply unscrewing the spout or another type has a set screw on the underside needs to be removed.

    Before installing the new spout/diverter clean the copper pipe with some emery cloth to make it nice and shinny to help the O ring seal better.
