    Hi
    Does anyone know how to fix a stiff pull up\down shower diverter.
    Is there a grip you can buy to put on it to help grip it as it is chrome and has become very stiff to pull up and down please.
    Thanks for any advise.
    Phil.

    How old is it? If it's gone hard to use then chances are it's worn and it'll never work properly again, best bet is to replace it.
