What Is a Diverter Valve?

Diverter pool valves are pool valves that can direct the flow of water moving through the plumbing system in different directions and to various pool components.

These valves come in two and three-way configurations to suit the needs of other applications. 

Two-way valves have a lever that turns 90-degrees, allowing you to divert water to either side or both at once. Three-way valves have a port on each side and one in the center with a lever that turns 180-degrees.

These valves provide control of the water in either direction with continuous flow through the center port.
