Thermostatic Mixing Valves
Thermostatic mixing valves are important if we like our hot water to be maintained at a safe temperature.
What we do
It is important to maintain hot water storage at temperatures above 60°C.
This is to prevent the growth of bacteria, particularly that which causes Legionnaires Disease.
Water at a temperature of 55°C takes 17 seconds to cause a second-degree burn, with no long-term damage. Now, increase the temperature by only 5°C to 60°C, and it takes a mere 5 seconds of exposure to cause a scalding third degree burn.
We will install TMV that allows the tempering and control of hot water to each outlet to a safe and comfortable level.
While maintaining a hot water supply that is free of harmful bacteria, Plumbing & Pipeline Solutions install and configure valves.
Australian Standards will be prioritized and can incorporate their servicing as part of an ongoing maintenance schedule.
