We are all able to be seriously injured from burns received from high water temperatures. Children and the elderly have very sensitive skin and therefore they are particularly susceptible to scalding from these high temperatures.
The thermostats in old hot water cylinders can fail, allowing the water in your cylinder to potentially reach boiling point. However, there are affordable safety valves on the market to protect against these high temperatures and keep your family and friends safe from nasty burns. With a tempering valve installed in your hot water system you can protect your household from these dangers.
A tempering valve mixes cold water with the hot water from the cylinder cooling it to a safe temperature for delivery to your shower and other sanitary fixtures.
The other way this valve protects your household is it allows the water in your cylinder to reach 60°C every day which is important as the dangerous bacteria that cause legionaries disease can’t grow at that temperature. For this reason, controlling your water temperature by simply turning down the thermostat on the cylinder is not a safe thing to do.
