I have an older 3 handle shower faucet set up. I recently purchased replacement valves and diverter and installed them into the existing housing. The problem is, the diverter does not shut off the water to the shower head completely. Also, the diverter does not seem to stop when turned counter clockwise. I have looked very carefully at the diverter, and it is identical to the old one. I noticed that in the back of the diverter housing in the shower wall that there was a 1/4 square hole, I did not know if this is something that can be used to adjust the way the valve seat of the diverter sits. Help!

When repairing the shower did you check the valve seats also?

No I did not. I thought if anything I would have problems with the hot and cold stems not the diverter.
