Shower Diverter Valve - Most Vital Part of Any Luxury Shower

Some of you may be wondering why I am writing about Shower Diverter Valve? Quite simply, it’s because the shower valve is arguably the most important fixture within your shower tub system.

Okay, so what is a shower diverter valve? In most cases, it is a two-way valve that controls the flow of water either to your shower head or your bathtub spout.

The valve will allow water to flow through your tub spout, or it can be set to divert the water away from the tub spout and through additional piping to your shower head.

Generally, the shower diverter valve can be found in two varieties. The first type is a rotating handle that controls the diverter valve, while the second type can be a push-pull control with a kind of notched rod serving as the handle.
