Thermostatic Mixing Valves (TMV) = Hot Water Safety

Thermostatic Mixing Valves – Geelong, Torquay, Barwon Heads, Ocean Grove & surrounding areas

The thermostatic mixing valve, or TMV, blends hot and cold water, so that a safe, constant temperature of water is delivered to the user, whilst also allowing any stored water to remain at a temperature that inhibits the growth of bacteria.  It’s an amazing piece of engineering that prevents scalding, and has no doubt, saved many, many lives.

It is law in Australia that facilities such as child care centres, pre-schools, primary schools, secondary schools, nursing homes, hospitals and the like, have TMVs installed.

TMVs need to be inspected and tested annually.  This can only be done by a plumber that is licenced in the specialised class of TMV Testing.

Give us a call today – we have the right tick on the back of our licence.

Tomlinson Plumbing is licensed to install, commission and maintain thermostatic mixing valves. It’s a specialised area of plumbing that requires additional training and qualifications.
