What is a thermostatic mixing valve?
A thermostatic mixing valve is a device that is connected to the hot and cold water supply pipes, designed to blend the water to create a constant and desired temperature to prevent scolding from bath, shower and hand basin outlets.
Every year, thousands of people suffer serious scalding or thermal shock injuries in their showers and bathtubs, from the tender skin of toddlers or the slow reaction time from the elderly and the handicapped.
This is something that Melbourne Plumbing & Gas take very seriously, and Taylor a programmed preventative maintenance schedule to suit individual clients requirements, ensuring the correct and safe operation of all thermostatic mixing valve models and designs.
