TMV testing is mandatory, and must be carried out by a qualified plumber on an annual basis.
Have you done YOUR annual TMV test?
What is a TMV?
A Thermostatic Mixing Valve (TMV) is a valve that blends hot water (stored at temperatures high enough to kill bacteria) with cold water to ensure constant, safe outlet temperatures preventing scalding. Commonly found in nursing homes, child care centres and disabled toilet blocks, fitted to showers and hand basins.
The TMV circulates and mixes hot and cold water and then distributes warm water at a temperature less than 50°C.
