we are back in the shower here and what I want to do is show you how the shower works and the valve that we are going to have to take apart here to stop this nasty leak. Now if you look at the way this is set up, this is one of your newer setups as far as shower goes. You have a valve here which is your on and off and your temperature control, we have a diverter here because in this shower I have a regular shower head above and I have a sunflower on the other wall so you can actually run them both at the same time or one or the other. This one on the end is a flow rate valve and this is a water saver so you can crank it up if you really want to get a great burst of water or you can cool it down while you are shaving. It will save some water and do good for the planet and that is how we are set up in here. This one right here is the valve we are interested in and this has to come off. Now I am going to show you how to do that. We are going to take this apart and we are going to fix it.
