Subsequently, one may also ask, how do shower diverters work?
The water pipe that connects to your tub faucet also extends vertically to your showerhead. When the diverter valve is open, water flows directly through the faucet and into the tub. However, when you want to take a shower, you lift the knob or lever to close the diverter valve.
One may also ask, how much is a shower diverter? This has only a 1/4 inch passage, so will not flow a lot of water. But, neither will other diverters on the market. So, this is the best of a bad lot. If you have a recent production low flow shower head or valve, it will not make any difference.
