A diverter valve can channel water to the showerhead OR the handshower OR the body sprays'but not all at the same time. If a hot supply and a cold supply were plumbed into a diverter valve, the water would run constantly with no way to stop it. You've figured that you have a shower diverter valve problem. Tackling plumbing problems in the home can be quite daunting. Shower diverter valve replacement or replacing a diverter washer can be tricky if you're not familiar with the process.
However, you must not forget that your shower curtain rods too need to be maintained like the curtain rods you use in your rooms.
First, how does a shower diverter work? Bath and shower head diverters frequently incorporate some sort of pressure balancing feature so that the hot/cold mixture ratio will not be affected by transient changes in the pressure of one or the other of the supplies. This helps avoid scalding or uncomfortable chilling as other water loads occur (such as the flushing of a toilet).
A very important thing to keep in mind is that the steam that comes from the unit needs an outlet. Otherwise, it may cause structural problems in your house.
Custom showers require plumbing changes and/or major considerations before installing. You cannot just simply add more shower heads or sprays to an existing shower stall or tub enclosure. Custom showers should be installed by a licensed plumbing contractor.
