Installation & Servicing

Installation


tmv20_installation_new
  • Refer to Technical Area for installation guide.
  • Valve to be installed by a qualified plumber.
  • Installation must comply with local authority requirements.
  • Valve may be installed in any orientation.
  • Flush pipes prior to fitting.
  • Connections are H (hot inlet) C (cold inlet) and OUT (tempered outlet).
  • Do not apply heat near valve during installation.
  • Do not install directly into cylinder outlet.
  • CautionValves not installed in accordance with these instructions may result in unsafe performance.
  • CommissioningThe outlet temperature must be set on site.
  • It should be set to and verified using a thermometer.
  • Remove cap.
  • Use a screwdriver to adjust to desired temperature with the water running.
  • Turn anti-clockwise to increase the temperature.
Testing and Maintenance
  • Testing should be carried out at least every 12 months. Note that the owner, occupier or facility manager needs to be notified that testing is being carried out and measures shall be taken to ensure safety during the testing.
  • Check cleanliness of strainers and non-return valves; check non-return valve operation.
  • Check the discharge temperature at the nearest outlet at both high and low flow using a thermometer with an accuracy of +/- 0.5˚C. Record the test results and the location of the valve. Isolate the cold supply and check that the thermostatic mixing valve shuts down the hot supply.
  • If a valve is found to be faulty during testing, it must be replaced.
  • The thermostatic mixing valve shall be replaced at intervals not exceeding 5 years. Servicing of the internals of the valve is limited to replacement of the complete unit
