sry missed your reply... Got lost in the shuffle..

Umm delta and kohler were the prominent brands with push button divertor..

That other knob diverts the water to shower?

What issues are you experiencing with it?

Mike, is it possibly a Hans Grohe? I installed one several years ago that looked like this. Similar diverter.

Grohe as far as I know the cartridges are threaded in and the threads are part of the cartridge..

I cant find good pics and I think the grohe's have the diverter button on the top side..

Whats throwing me off is the chrome piece to get the cart out..

Its not standard kohler.. Its a regular splined cartrdge...

Thank you both for your replies. My issue is shower is leaking from shower head at almost a pencil lead stream. I have novice plumbing knowledge but understand the leak has nothing to do with the shower head but rather the part I initially provided a pic of.

If it helps I bought the shower assembly at Home Depot btwn 2003-2004.

Thx,
Mark
