What is a “Thermostatic Anti Scald valve”?
A thermostatic anti scald valve is a device fitted under your bath, on the hot water supply. It automatically mixes cold water to the hot supply so that the water entering the bath cannot exceed a set temperature – normally around 43-44 degrees C. It is VERY important, as you will be in the bath before opening the hot tap. Alternatively, you can use thermostatic taps which contain a similar valve as part of the tap. They perform the same function. Thermostatic valves should be checked and adjusted regularly to ensure they are working correctly.
