Repairing a Leaky Diverter Faucet?

My diverter faucet is leaking when the water is shut off, should I replace the faucet or the on/off valve?

We replaced the entire faucet when ours went.

I always start with the least expensive route, which is the diverter...on off valve.

That said, I don't do the work as I learned the hard way plumbing and I don't mix.

An honest plumber, which we have, will tell you the best thing...either try least expensive and hope for the best, or bite the bullet and do the whole thing.

It looks like you have a lot of corrosion so he/she may suggest the whole faucet for that reason alone.

Good luck!!

I'd make sure your internal washers were good first. That's what did ours :)
