There’s a risk of getting first-degree burns with a shower that only has a single-lever valve. While you can tinker around with the hot and cold shower controls to get to a temperature that’s comfortable for you, you can still get burnt by hot water once the pressure in the cold water pipes drops.
There is also a reverse effect: You can get a blast of cold water while in the middle of washing greasy pots and pans. Typically, this happens when someone else flushes a toilet or perhaps turns on the tap. It may not be as dangerous but it is very irritating nonetheless. To prevent these horrible scenarios, a thermostatic mixing valve is just what you need.
Installation and Maintenance
Hot water is usually stored at a high temperature, one that is high enough to kill germs. Doing so actually removes one possible breeding ground for Legionella, a bacteria that naturally inhabits water. It is the direct cause of Legionnaires’ disease, a more serious, life-threatening form of pneumonia-type and Pontiac fever, an acute, nonfatal respiratory disease.
As protection for your skin, use a thermostatic mixer in your valves. Designed to blend hot water with cold water, these shower valves ensure safe and comfortable temperatures. For installation services, call on Waterflow Plumbing. Our crew can even set the limit within the tempering valve itself to avoid harmful settings. You can also turn to us for on-site maintenance, which we recommend be performed on a regular basis.
