What is a Thermostatic Mixing Valve?
A thermostatic mixing valve, or TMV, is a handy device that blends both hot and cold water together to achieve a particular water temperature when delivering water through a faucet.
How does a TMV work?
A TMV works by combining both hot and cold water to achieve a predetermined temperature (within 1℃ +/-) to be delivered through various outlets. The temperature is usually preset by a plumber or a qualified tradesperson, and the element within a TMV that is sensitive to thermal activity automatically arranges the appropriate levels of hot and/or cold water to create the correct temperature of liquid.
Who should have a Thermostatic Mixing Valve?
There is a range of places that must utilise TMVs. Generally all businesses dealing with high-risk persons like children, sick patients, disabled or elderly should have TMV installed on their hot water systems and serviced annually.
- Nursing homes.
- Child care facilities and after school care.
- Respite centres.
- Aged care facilities.
- Shopping centre bathroom facilities.
In general, TMVs are utilised in environments that include high-risk persons, such as children, as well as the elderly and the sick, as they require a lower water delivery temperature (usually 45℃ or 113℉ as a maximum).
Who can install a TMV?
A qualified plumber with a TMV licence is the only one who can install a thermostatic mixing valve. The Brisbane Plumbing and Drainage team hold the relevant licences to install TMVs, so give us a call today!
How often should you have your TMV inspected?
According to AS4032.3, TMVs should be inspected every 12 months (at a minimum) by a qualified professional (like us!) so implementing an inspection schedule for your Thermostatic Mixing Valve is always strongly suggested.
Why should you have your Thermostatic Mixing Valve inspected?
There are two reasons why you should have your TMV inspected – for safety and in accordance with the regulations.
For the safety of those using a tap and to avoid injuries such as scalding, a TMV ensures the water being released from the faucet is not above 45℃ (113℉). Additionally, in accordance with Australian regulations (National Plumbing and Drainage Standard AS/NZS 3500.4: 2003), various water installations are not permitted to deliver water at a temperature higher than 50℃/45℃ for different fixtures.

Super helpful, super friendly and professional. We had a hot water system leak over the long weekend. They gave advice over the phone how to help in the mean time. Came out to replace when they could.
The service was great from the time I called in the morning to early afternoon when the hot water system has been organised for delivery and installed. All staff were so helpful…
Was most impressed by plumber Matt Chapman who responded to my call. He was on time and explained clearly the options whether to fix or repair my very old and faulty hot water system…
