How do thermostatic mixing valves work?

Thermostatic showers store hot water in their valve before mixing it with cold water to the temperature you set. A thermostatic mixing valve can also react to the changes in the temperature of the water and mix according to any preset temperature.

Thermostatic mixers also shut down if there is no cold water supply. This will prevent you from getting burnt from the hot water.

Some core elements of thermostatic diverters are:

Element

The element is a small motor that increases and decreases with the temperature of water flowing through it.

Piston

The piston is used to regulate the water temperature. It moves across the entry points of hot and cold water to maintain constant water temperature.

Temperature control

Temperature control is what you use to control and change the temperature of the shower. This control moves the piston, which will mix the cold and hot water to your desired temperature.

All these elements work together to reach the water temperature you wanted and also to maintain it.

How to fit a thermostatic valve

Before fitting your thermostatic valve shower make sure you have tools like pipe cutter, tapes, hammer and drill ready. To fit the thermostatic mixing valve, follow the steps:

Step 1: Decide on the water supply.

On the first step, decide from where to get the hot water and cold water supply. If you are using your thermostatic valve above your bath, you can combine it with the tap water supplies. If you are installing it in your shower enclosure, you can connect it with your nearest piping under the floorboards.

Step 1: Decide on the water supply.

The thermostatic valve mixes hot and cold water to your pre-set temperature. It also reacts to the changes in the water temperature and adjusts the mixing of water. It can also easily adjust to the changes in the water supply. So if somebody opens your kitchen faucet, the temperature in your shower will remain the same.

Step 2: Flush the water from piping:

Your thermostatic diverter for the shower can get damaged because of dirt in the water flow. Removing the stop ends from your water pipes and then running water through them. You can catch any dirt by placing a bucket underneath.

Step 3: Cut your pipes:

To cut your pipes, measure them by keeping the valve next to them. Mark the pipe length for hot and cold water outlets needed to help the valve flush out water against the shower wall. Cut the excess piping after you have measured them with a saw or pipe cutter.

Step 4: Drill the holes:

Mark the area where you want to fit the valve and drill holes to attach it. Using a diamond tip drill will work better on walls or tiles.

Step 5: Fit a compression olive:

To seal your thermostatic diverter properly and avoid leakage, place a compression olive in each of the valve’s inlets and secure it by securing the nut with one turn.

Step 6: Align thermostatic valve:

Align the thermostatic shower valve with cold and hot pipes. Make sure the valve slides into the pipe. Place the valve on the wall and tighten the nuts with a spanner.
