Thermostatic mixing valves in Sydney

Have you ever wondered how your taps always provide you with comfortably warm water all the time? Well, this is possible because of either a thermostatic mixing valve (TMV) or a tempering valve. These valves control the water temperature by mixing hot and cold water, as needed. As a leading plumbing company, we can provide you with quality services for thermostatic mixing valves in Sydney, be it for installation or repairs.

Are thermostatic mixing valves better than tempering valves?

The thermostatic mixing valves are more expensive than tempering valves. However, they do offer a number of additional perks:

A TMV valve is more accurate and the water temperature may vary a maximum of 1 degree Celsius from the specified temperature.

Why might you want to install thermostatic mixing valves?

Professional Plumbers

The thermostatic mixing valves basically protect you from the danger of getting scalded by hot water. As per the Australian standards, tank storage hot water systems store the water at a minimum temperature of 60-degree Celsius. This is because most bacteria cannot survive in such hot temperatures. However, such hot water can potentially cause injuries due to burns or due to quick reactions caused by a person trying to get away from the heat. This is why the regulations also state that the temperature of the water coming out of a tap must be 50-degree Celsius at most. In establishments like schools, childhood centre, hospitals, hairdressing centres, etc. it is mandatory to maintain a water temperature of maximum 45-degree Celsius. A TMV accurately measures the hot water temperature and mixes it with the cold water.
