diverters for bathtub faucets
NEOPERL® diverters for bathtub faucets
The diverter in a bathtub faucet switches the water stream
to either the tub filler position or the shower hose. It has
three main components – main body, a connector and an
axle. The axle is made of brass or plastic. This gives rise to
three possible material variants: brass diverters, plastic
diverters and diverters using a mix of both materials (called
hybrid diverters). Diverters for bathtub faucets are available
in two sizes and either with automatic return to the tub filler
position from 0.2 bar, or with a locking facility. They feature
a self-retaining function, which becomes effective at the
very low pressure level of 0.2 bar.
The classic diverter: a brass diverter is
characterised by its outstanding stability, a
long service life and an elegant appearance.
A hybrid diverter comprises a plastic main
body and a brass connector. This combination of materials makes the hybrid diverter
robust and durable. The axle is made of
