loud shower

I just bought a house and took my first shower there this morning. When I turn on the water to the shower, it makes a loud rumbling sound. It lasts the entire time the shower is on. When just the bath is running, it does not make that sound. The water pressure seems to be reasonably ok, although a little water is still coming out of the tub faucet while the shower is on. Any thoughts???

Re: loud shower

Sounds like the diverter valve is either loose or worn out...it is probably vibrating back and forth, causing the rumbling. Would start there.
