A thermostatic mixing valve is a safe and reliable way to achieve perfect water temperature throughout the water supply.Hot and cold water passes through the valve and is then put into your sink or shower at the desired temperature.
The Dangers of Hot Water
Every year, thousands of people suffer serious thermal shock or scalding injuries in their bathtubs, sinks and showers. Additional untold numbers become ill due to water-borne bacteria, such as Legionella.
Often, injuries in the shower are caused by slips and falls in reaction to a sudden increase or decrease in water temperature.More than 90% of scalding incidents occur in the home. The tender skin of very young children and the slow reaction time of the elderly and the handicapped make them most vulnerable to serious hot water burns. Scalding injuries are tremendously painful, and the effects can last for years.
