The one water inlet 121 and one of the water outlets 122 are arranged at intervals in an axial direction on the valve body 120. An inner surface of the valve body 120 includes a cylindrical surface section 123 on which the two water outlets 122 are located. The valve body 120 is also provided with two mating grooves 124. The two mating grooves 124 are evenly spaced in the circumferential direction on the inner surface of the valve body 120, and correspond to the positions of the two water outlets 122 one by one. The material of the valve body 120 is an environment-friendly material conforming to the KTW certification.

[0024] The valve core 200 is provided with a first positioning groove 210 and a second positioning groove 220. The first positioning groove 210 and the second positioning groove 220 are arranged at intervals in the axial direction on the surface of the valve core 200. A sealing cup 400 is received in the first positioning groove 210. An end surface of the sealing cup 400 extending out of the first positioning groove 210 is a cylindrical curved surface 410. A first elastic member 500 is disposed between the other end surface of the sealing cup 400 and the first positioning groove 210. The material of the sealing cup 400 is silicone rubber or the like conforming to the KTW certification. The first elastic member 500 is a coil spring. A positioning column 600 is received in the second positioning groove 220. An end surface of the positioning column 600 extending out of the second positioning groove 220 is a spherical surface. A second elastic member 700 is connected between the other end surface of the positioning column 600 and the second positioning groove 220.

[0025] The packaging assembly includes a fixing seat 910 and a base 920. The fixing seat 910 is an annular structure with one end closed and the other end opened, and the base 920 is installed in the fixing seat 910. The material of the fixing seat 910 is an environment-friendly material conforming to the KTW certification.

[0026] The knob 800 is provided with an indicator 810. The indicator 810 is a length of convex rib extending outward from the surface of the knob 800. The indicator 810 provides convenience for an operator's finger to contact the knob 800. The indicator 810 also provides an indication of the position of rotation of the knob 800.

[0027] The connection relationship and effect of the various components of the water diverter are as follows.

[0028] As shown in FIG. 1 to FIG. 4, the valve body 120 is installed in the housing 110. The valve core 200 is rotatably installed in the valve body 120. A water passing channel 300 is formed between the valve core 200 and the valve body 120. The water inlet 121 and the two water outlets 122 are communicated with the water passing channel 300. The water inlet 121 and the water inlet connection port 111 are plug-in connected and sealed to form a water inlet channel. The two water outlet connection ports 112 and the two water outlets 122 are plug-in connected and sealed in one-to-one correspondence to form two water outlet channels. The first positioning groove 210 corresponds to any one of the water outlets 122. Components such as the fixing seat 910 and the base 920 are connected to a trailing end of the valve body 120. The components such as the fixing seat 910 and the base 920 are used to fix the valve core 200 in the valve body 120. The fixing seat 910 is inserted into one end of the housing 110 and pushes against the valve core 200 and the valve body 120 inward. The base 920 is inserted into the fixing seat 910 to deform the fixing seat 910. An outer diameter of the fixing seat 910 increases due to deformation, so as to be in interference fit with the housing 110. A front end of the valve core 200 is in sealing fit with the valve body 120. The knob 800 is installed at the front end of the valve core 200, and the knob 800 is used for driving the valve core 200 to rotate.

[0029] As shown in FIG. 2 to FIG. 4, the first elastic member 500 and the sealing cup 400 are arranged in the first positioning groove 210, and the first elastic member 500 presses the sealing cup 400 radially outward, so that the cylindrical curved surface 410 is abutted against the cylindrical surface section 123, and the sealing cup 400 has better sealing performance and can better seal any one of the water outlets 122. The first elastic member 500 pressing the sealing cup 400 radially outward may also prolong the service life of the sealing cup 400.

[0030] As shown in FIG. 2 to FIG. 4, the positioning column 600 and the second elastic member 700 are both installed in the second positioning groove 220, and the second elastic member 700 presses the positioning column 600 radially outward. The positioning column 600 is positioned in one of the two mating grooves 124, and the water inlet 121 is communicated with one of the two water outlets 122, thereby realizing waterway switching. Moreover, the positioning column 600 is positioned in the mating groove 124, and the spherical surface of the positioning column 600 enables better realization of sliding of the positioning column 600 into and out of the mating groove 124. Under the compression of the second elastic member 700, the positioning column 600 slides into the mating groove 124. When the spherical surface is mated with the mating groove 124, a collision sound for prompting the user is produced.

[0031] A method for using the water diverter is as follows.

[0032] The knob 800 drives the valve core 200 to rotate and the valve core 200 drives the sealing cup 400 and the positioning column 600 to rotate together, until the positioning column 600 is positioned in one of the two mating grooves 124 to produce a collision sound. At this time, the sealing cup 400 seals one of the two water outlets 122, and the indicator 810 indicates the unsealed water outlet 122 from which water flows out. The knob 800 continues to be rotated, until the positioning column 600 is positioned in the other of the two mating grooves 124 to produce a collision sound. At this time, the sealing cup 400 seals the other of the two water outlets 122, and the indicator 810 indicates the unsealed water outlet 122 from which water flows out.

[0034] This Example differs from Example 1 in that: four water outlet connection ports are evenly disposed on the housing in the circumferential direction, four water outlets and four mating grooves are evenly disposed on the valve body in the circumferential direction, and the four water outlets and the four mating grooves are in one-to-one correspondence and are axially spaced; and the valve core is provided with three first positioning grooves, three sealing cups and three first elastic members are installed in the three first positioning grooves in one-to-one correspondence, the three sealing cups can seal any three of the four water outlets, and water can be discharged from the unsealed water outlet.

[0035] To sum up, in the water diverter according to the embodiments of the present disclosure, the valve core drives at least one sealing member to rotate, the at least one sealing member can seal and block a portion of the water outlet channels, the sealed and blocked portion of the water outlet channels are disconnected from the water inlet channel and water cannot be discharged therefrom, the water inlet channel is communicated with a water outlet channel that is not sealed or blocked by the sealing member to discharge water, and waterway switching can be performed by rotating the valve core forwardly or reversely, thereby realizing 360-degree rotation in any direction, so that the water diverter has better practicability. Moreover, the housing may be manufactured by a low-cost material, and the valve body is manufactured by a material conforming to the KTW certification. In this way, the manufacturing cost of the water diverter can be reduced.
