How hard is it to change the tub diverter location?
 
Evening.

I have an older style bath/shower control with the diverter located below, but not contained within, the control knob (it is a push/pull pin).

I want to update to a diverter that's located on the tip of the spout (so I can update/replace the entire hardware set).

I'm having a plumber come in to look at it (the tub wall is already exposed) but I want to have an idea of what to expect before he looks at it. I assume the older diverter will have to be removed, a new section put in its place, and then we can proceed with the update?

Hope this makes sense.

Changing to a tub spout diverter is easy. The spout screws onto the pipe that comes from the shower valve. When you update the valve it may come with a matching tub spout.
