    Hello,

    Is it possible to replace the faucet without replacing the valves? The center diverter knob requires a lot of pulling force to operate. I want to avoid opening the tiles for cost reasons. If it is possible, can you suggest a good replacement model? Many thanks in advance.

    the waste and overflow plate just below the tub spout says price Pfister so I think you may be able to find parts....I cant see how to disassemble the diverter but maybe if you get it a part soak it in vinegar you could also take the pic to a plumbing supply house and see if there are replacement parts if needed
