Knowing that you can turn on a tap and expect warm, consistent water is one of life’s little luxuries. Waiting too long for the hot water to get hot is an annoyance and a waste, while hot water that is instantly too hot can be dangerous – especially for children and for others who are vulnerable.
If you would like to talk to us regarding installation, or thermostatic mixing valve testing, then we can ensure you have a system that meets your needs.
The purpose of a thermostatic mixing valve (TMV) is to ensure you get the that safe and consistent supply of water that is never too hot or too cold. Most TMVs will be set to water temperatures between 500C to 600C to ensure that hot and cold water supplies are blended at a comfortable temperature. This temperature range will also assist bacteria control, by killing off most bacteria and preventing it from multiplying within the water system. You can talk to our team if you have specific concerns regarding unsafe levels of legionella in the water delivery system.
Some industries will be required to regulate water temperatures for the safety and comfort of clients, employees, or the general public. Other business owners (and householders) may choose to install TMVs for peace of mind. Whatever category you fall into, our qualified plumbers can provide thermostatic mixing valve testing and maintenance.
Thermostatic mixing valves will be required by a range of industries where patrons, staff, or those in your care are reliant upon the supply of water at a safe and comfortable temperature. These are not limited to, but may include:
To ensure your thermostatic mixing valves are up to standard, and that they continue to provide a consistent water supply without letting you down, contact the team at Jet Plus Plumbing for thermostatic mixing valve testing.
Thermostatic mixing valves fall into several categories. Depending on your water supply needs, a TMV may be fitted at the point of use (with one for each tap outlet) or a single TMV may be used to create a uniform temperature distribution for all outlets. If you are unsure about the style of TMV that may have been fitted at your home or business premises, then give our team a call. We are always happy to offer information and advice, or to come to you to provide an on site inspection. We can provide thermostatic mixing valve testing services for landlords or tenants of residential or commercial properties.
If you have any doubts as to the safety of a thermostatic mixing valve, or simply have a wish for a more reliable water temperature, then contact the experienced team at Jet Plus Plumbing
