Bath and Shower Diverter Notice of Intent

A bath and shower diverter is a device activated by an end user to divert the flow of water either toward the tub spout (i.e., to the bathtub) or toward a secondary outlet (i.e., the showerhead) in a tub-shower enclosure. This product is commonly found in tub-shower combinations in residences and hotels.
