What is a Thermostatic Mixer Valve?
A thermostatic mixer valve is an essential part of a well-designed
shower. Safe, convenient and economical, it ensures maximum
showering enjoyment while protecting you and your family from the
risk of scalding.
What is a thermostatic shower mixer?
A thermostatic mixer maintains an exact water temperature for the
duration of your shower. It protects you from any sudden changes in
the water supply to the shower, so even if somebody flushes the
toilet or turns on the kitchen tap the temperature of your shower
will remain the same.
How does a thermostatic mixer work?
The thermostatic valve mixes the hot and cold water to your
pre-selected temperature and reacts instantly to any changes in the
pressure or temperature of the water supply by re-adjusting the mix
of hot and cold water. Should there be a failure in your cold water
supply, the thermostatic valve will automatically shut down.
What are the benefits?
A thermostatic mixer valve offers three key benefits: safety,
convenience and economy.
- Safety – Your pre-selected water temperature remains constant
for the duration of your shower, so there’s no risk of scalding

- Convenience – Our thermostatic mixers will maintain your
pre-selected water temperature, leaving you to relax and enjoy your
shower. Should you wish to stop the water (e.g. to shampoo your
hair), the thermostat will automatically find the exact same
temperature when you re-start the flow.
- Economy – Install a thermostatic mixer and you can save water
and energy too. Thanks to their efficiency, a thermostatic shower
mixer will pay for itself over a short period of time. Use our

Do I need one?
Yes, if you want the perfect water temperature and a safe and

risk of scalding is higher.
