Water flows through faucet during showers

Q.    When showering, more water comes down through the bath faucet than through the showerhead. Is there a way to fix this without making a hole in the tile?

A.    I assume that the shower diverter is a pop-up stem on the tub spout. Some of these shower diverters do not always completely stop the flow through the tub spout, but if this is a relatively recent problem, the O-ring may be worn out.

The easiest solution is to replace the tub spout and hope that the new spout will work better.
