  • What buyers say about KES Brass Shower Arm Diverter Valve for Handheld Shower Head and Fixed Shower Head


    I used a female end of the diverter and a male end of the diverter to attach my main shower arm and the main to the wall.


    The whole thing is sturdy, I am so impressed with it that I brought another for my second bathroom renovation.


    I used more Teflon tape to fix the angle of the valve handle that was 45 degrees too far away from the straight up and down position.


    There are two small holes on the intake that reduce the water pressure.


    This is a very good diverter, it's very easy to use, it's very durable, and it's very easy to clean. My only gripe is that it doesn't come with a configuration with 2.

    Common Questions

    Q:

    Does this switch the water from the showerhead to a handheld only or does it have an option for running water through both the showerhead and a handheld?

    A:

    The water can flow through both if you put the lever in the center position.

    Q:

    I have a problem with my grip. Is it hard to turn it?

    A:

    It's very easy to turn, you just have to push it either way.

    Q:

    Is it possible to gradually adjust the pressure or flow on either valve by only turning the knob slightly?

    A:

    The water flows at a constant pressure between when the valve is open in one direction and when it is closed in the other.

    Q:

    Is it possible to use only one washer on female inlet?

    A:

    It's not recommended to add washers due to possible leakage, but if there is a minor leak, make sure you have enough threads to tighten.

    Q:

    Can the valve be turned around so the male end is the source and the female end the exit?

    A:

    If you change the source water flow, it will have to be capped to work, and you can look at the KES Shower Head Shut for a simple on/off valve.
