Frequently Asked Questions about Tempering Valve

A tempering valve will typically last you 5-8 years. However, regular servicing and general inspections can identify any potential issues before they occur, and effectively prolong the life of your tempering valve.

Both of these valves keep water temperature below scalding. However, thermostatic mixing valves react faster to temperature and pressure changes.

Most tempering valves have an automatic thermal shut-off feature that kicks in if there is an issue with the hot or cold inlet supplies.

This feature will immediately shut off the outlet and stop mixed water from exiting the valve.
