A leak diverter is a type of device used to redirect or contain water leaks in buildings. It typically consists of a flexible, waterproof membrane that is suspended from the ceiling or other overhead structure and positioned to catch water that is dripping or flowing from a leak in the roof, pipes, or other sources.
The membrane is designed to channel the water to a specific location, such as a drain or a bucket, in order to prevent damage to the building or its contents. Some leak diverters have built-in hoses that can be directed to a specific location or connected to a larger container for more efficient water management.
Leak diverters are commonly used in commercial and industrial settings where water leaks can cause significant damage or disruption to business operations. They are also sometimes used in residential settings as a temporary solution until more extensive repairs can be made.
