Ever Heard of a Mixing Valve, Nepean?
Helloooo, John THE Plumber here to talk to you about mixing valves, Nepean. The running water utilized in one’s home on a daily basis isn’t something anybody puts much thought into in terms of how it works. You simply go to the handle or lever that you know controls the water flow be it your bathtub, showers or sink faucets and turn it on. Everyone is aware that the ability to get only cold water, only hot water or a combination of both is ever present. Everyone also knows that individual taps can be manipulated at the same time in order to get a desired water temperature. But does everyone know WHAT the mechanics are within your plumbing system that ensures you don’t risk scalding yourself every time you turn the hot water faucet on?
