Shower Head Leaks when Tub Faucet is on
I replumbed my bathroom and installed new hot and cold valves (seperate) along with a new tub faucet with diverter and shower head. The piping to the shower is in the wall. I just added a T-connector to the pipe leading to the faucet. I was hoping that the water would take the straight path to the tub faucet. I hoped that the 90 degree turn in the T-connector and the height of the shower head would keep the shower from running when the tub faucet was open. However, this has not been the case; the shower is dripping at about 1/4 flow when the water is running through the tub faucet.
Everything seems perfect when the faucet diverter is closed.
One other interesting thing (maybe) is that there is a lot of turbulance coming out of the tub faucet with the diverter open.
1. Did I do my plumbing correctly by adding the T-connector up to the shower head?
2. Is there too much pressure and/or resistance in the tub faucet?
Let me know your thoughts and comments. Thanks!
