Tempering valves are used to mix hot and cold water. This ensures that you’re not scalded by a sudden gush of hot water. It’s an essential safety device, and in Australia, it is a regulation that you have one installed.

 

Hot water tempering valves allow a maximum of 50 degrees hot water to be used. This is because often, your hot water system is set to 70 degrees or above to prevent the growth of harmful bacteria.

 

Tempering Valves are often used in conjunction with an expansion control valve designed to relieve the increase in pressure caused by expansion during the normal heating cycle.

 

With a tempering valve and the expansion control valves, pressure and temperature relief valves are used, if things get a little too hot.
