Any plumbing system - luxury or low cost housing complexes - will have pressure variances in hot and cold system that will cause temperature fluctuations in the shower. Anti-scald valves are a must to protect you and your guests. Studies show injury time can be as little a 1/2 second for a child under 5 if the temperature exceeds 150 degrees F and only 2.5 seconds if temperature exceeds 122 degrees F. For adults, the time is double, but still only 1 - 5 seconds. You can't afford not to protect.
This anti-scald valve instantly corrects supply pressure fluctuations. Correction allows hot-to-cold water ratio to balance depite fluctuations up to 85%. Built-in anti-scald high temperature integral stops to prohibit valve handle from being turned to excessive hot discharge temperatures. Solid brass - NO plastic or white metal. Stops are brass and cast with the valve body. All trim is copper nickel chrome plated. Only one moving part. There is little or no maintenance. 1/2" female copper connections. Double seal packing with adjustable brass packing nut. Single lever handle control - ADA compliant. Vandal resistant escutcheon screws supplied.
