What is a Thermostatic Mixing Valve?

27 August 2020

What is a Thermostatic Mixing Valve?

Did you know that it takes as little as 1 second to receive a third degree burn if exposed to hot water between 65 and 80 degrees Celsius?

Thermostatic mixing valves automatically calculate the flow of hot water and cold water, ensuring that water of a constant and safe temperature is delivered to sanitary fixtures.

Australia wide legislation has also required all commercial buildings to comply with hot water control and safe delivery of hot water to all sanitary fixtures. TMV’s are a purpose built solution for the delivery of controlled temperature hot water that meets legislation requirements. O’Brien Plumbing Toowoomba is compliant with all manufacturers, local and state requirements for the installation and servicing of TMV’s. Our qualified plumbers can ensure that your TMV’s are installed and maintained in compliance to Australian standards.

O’Brien Plumbing Toowoomba provides highly reliable testing, maintenance and certification of thermostatic mixing valves throughout the wider Toowoomba and Darling Downs region. Please contact us to discuss your requirements.
