Shower whines

Hi, when we take a shower and pull the knob thing up to stop water from flowing out of the faucet and up to the shower head, it does not seal all the way anymore and it makes a wining noise out of the faucet end. Errrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!

Did I describe that right.

Anyway this is builder quality fixtures. Can I just replace the water spout end piece with the shower engagement pull thing.

Yes, you can replace just the tub spout. Most are just threaded on.

Often its cause is calcium build up on that pull lever inside that makes it chatter..

Soak in vinegar and clean with and old toothbrush inside
