How to Install a Shower Diverter Valve


Sometimes you want a handheld shower, and sometimes you want the standard shower head. Now you can have both options by installing a shower head diverter valve, with which you can easily switch from a handheld to a regular shower head.

Things You'll Need

  • Shower head diverter valve
  • Standard shower head
  • Handheld shower
  • The first step is simply removing the original shower head by unscrewing it.

  • Now screw in the diverter head in place of the original shower head.

  • Now screw the shower head back into the diverter. You will want to screw the handheld shower into the other threaded portion of the diverter.

  • You will now be able to switch between the standard shower head and the handheld shower, depending on your mood. You simply need to pull or push the diverter.

Tips & Warnings

  • Choose a diverter that matches the finish of your current shower head.
  • Make sure to use lukewarm water when testing the shower head diverter.
