A diverter is a switch used to direct water that has already been mixed in the valve to one of two or more valve outlets. A two-way diverter switches water between one of two outlets and a three-way diverter switches between one of three outlets. In addition, a diverter has an off position which cuts the supply of water to all the shower outlets. Diverters do not supply water independently to the shower outlets, only one can be on at a time. In addition, diverters do not allow fine control over the rate of flow, although there may be some control each outlet is basically full on or full off. Note that in many shower configurations especially those with an exposed valve (see below) there may be another separate diverter on another part of the shower, (usually on the riser which takes the water up the wall) which switches water from the valve between two shower outlets, for example, an overhead shower and a hand-held one on a slide rail or wall mount.
