I'm Terry with Towers Murray Plumbing, here to show you how to repair when water comes out, both the tub spout or faucet, and the shower head. Now, in a tub faucet,when you get water that comes out both the tub spout and the shower head. When you're trying to run the shower, or when you're running the tub. Different things that can happen, sometimes you'll get a spout that's gone bad. You get some calcium or some rust build-up inside the spout itself, or the nipple that comes out. First thing you can do to check that is, is remove your tub spout. Now, this particular one has a small set screw from the bottom side. You just go ahead and loosen that set screw, and the spout itself will just pull off. You can check the inside of the copper tubing here. Typically, your copper tubing is going to be clear. You can turn the water on, now and blow water out, make sure it's clear. Your tub spout itself, this is a slip-fit spout. We'll have some build-up inside of it. Now, the restriction will send the water up to the tub, or up to the shower, from the tub, you can replace that. Now, if you have a two handle valve, on a two handle valve, you still have the same spout. Some of them screw on, some of them are a slip-on. If that doesn't solve your problem, inside of a two handle valve, there's a little device. That diverts water down to the tub spout. Then, when you divert the water, it goes up to the shower head. Now, if that piece is missing, or clogged, plugged. It may need to be replaced. Now, that's a little trickier to get behind the wall, to get into that portion. At that point, you may need a little bit of help, you may need to call out a plumber to give you a hand on that. And again, I'm Terry with Towers Murray Plumbing.
