Tempering Valves Perth

Tempering valves are a must in every household in Perth that uses a hot water system. The reason for this is that the law requires that water piped into bathrooms be regulated so that they do not exceed 50 degree Celsius. Ignoring this will not only make you liable in case someone gets burned in your bathroom, but is also a clear danger to you and the rest of your household with children especially being at risk for scalding water burns.

If you are wondering why tempering valves are needed to regulate hot water, since you can always just set your water heater to churn out water at cooler temperatures, then think I’m pretty sure you won’t need to think twice once you start taking out still greasy plates from your dishwasher. Even more important is the fact that the bacteria for Legionnaire’s disease and other water borne diseases flourish at water temperatures below 50 degrees, this means that setting your water heater’s thermostat at that levels won’t kill these bacteria. So if you are to consider your family’s health AND safety, the best practice would be to set the water heater to 60 degrees to ensure that the bacteria are killed and just regulate the water being piped into your bathroom with the use of a tempering valve so no one gets scalded.
