Some water runs from tub spout when using shower
A plumber came to my house and installed a new delta shower/tub kit.
When in shower mode, some water still runs from the tub spout even though I pulled the diverter handle all the way up. Its not much, just three stream lines of water, but is this normal? According to Delta, some water is suppose to run from the tub spout, a pencil size width of water to be exact.
According to my plumber, he said that it is normal and that some other diverters out there actually have mechanisms to prevent this type of occurrence. He also said that it may also be caused by high pressures.
Has anyone noticed this with their own tub spout diverter? I thought since this shower/ tub kit is suppose to be water saving, why would water be flowing from the tub spout? That would waste more water than save.
By the way, it is a single handle tub/shower kit. The Delta classic monitor series 13 I believe.
