bathtub diverter spout


My diverter spout needs to be replaced because it only diverts a portion of the water resulting in low shower pressure. My problem is that I have a 1" water line and all the replacement spouts only convert to 3/4". Does anyone know where I can get a diverter spout for a 1" water line?

Thanks, Lori

I have never seen a diverter spout larger than 1/2" posting a pic might help.

I have seen 3/4 connections for tubspout but not 1". If you indeed have a 1" and it protrudes from tile 1" to 2 " than you may use a bell reducer from 1" to 3/4 or from 1" to 1/2" and a nipple to make up the rest. Your spout should have the fitting towards the nose.

Do you have a 3 handle tub valve or is it single lever or 2 handle?
