When I turn my shower on water still comes out the faucet?

The diverter is a valve in your tub's faucet that diverts water from the tub to the showerhead when the lever is pulled to turn on the shower. But, if a large amount of water is coming out of the tub's faucet then you most likely have a problem with that valve. Fixing the diverter is a fairly easy fix.

Where is the diverter valve?

It's usually a lever that's situated behind the bath taps that you can pull up or push down. System and conventional boilers don't require a diverter valve. This is because the hot water they produce is stored in a hot water cylinder.

How does a single handle shower faucet work?

By turning the handle, you first align the tube opening solely with the cold water inlet, causing chilly water to flow from the shower. As you continue to turn the handle, the tube opening starts to overlap with the hot water inlet as well as the cold. The water mixes in the tube for a tepid shower.
