First, how does a shower diverter work? Bath and shower head diverters frequently incorporate some sort of pressure balancing feature so that the hot/cold mixture ratio will not be affected by transient changes in the pressure of one or the other of the supplies. This helps avoid scalding or uncomfortable chilling as other water loads occur (such as the flushing of a toilet).
Another benefit of waterfall shower heads that you may enjoy is they are much easier to clean. This is due to the single large gaping hole that they have. It's simply easier to get in and out of with a cleaning utensil. Contrast this to the multiple tiny holes in a traditional shower head. These are simply not easy to get in and out of with a cleaning utensil and they are therefore susceptible to things such as the build up of lime, soap scum, and bacteria.
A diverter valve can channel water to the showerhead OR the handshower OR the body sprays'but not all at the same time. If a hot supply and a cold supply were plumbed into a diverter valve, the water would run constantly with no way to stop it. You've figured that you have a shower diverter valve problem. Tackling plumbing problems in the home can be quite daunting. Shower diverter valve replacement or replacing a diverter washer can be tricky if you're not familiar with the process.
