What is the purpose of a mixing valve on a water heater?
A Honeywell mixing valve allows you to set your water heater to a higher temperature to reduce the threat of bacteria growth, yet the mixing action helps prevent scalding. Plus, you'll increase your available hot water supply by mixing hot water with cold.
A 3-Way In-Wall diverter allows you to control the flow of water between 3 shower outlets. This solid, durable brass construction shower valve is built to last, and works with 10 styles of shower trim kits from American Standard, for a look that matches perfectly in any bathroom.
- Hydraulic Diverter. Valve Kit. Here is your answer to gain a set of hydraulic remotes to run your attachments with a flip of a switch. This valve uses an electric solenoid to divert the hydraulic fluid from its normal circuit to the auxiliary ports to supply hydraulics to your ANBO attachment.
- diverter. Noun. (plural diverters) A person or thing that diverts or is diverting. A valve used to change the flow of fluid through a system of pipes.
- Diverter Valves. Diverter valves sit behind the wall near the shower trim. Diverters are typically set in a default to push water up to the showerhead, but can be adjusted to push water through a tub filler faucet, handshower, or body sprays. Most tub filler faucets automatically have a diverter included.
A thermostatic mixer maintains an exact water temperature for the duration of your shower. It protects you from any sudden changes in the water supply to the shower, so even if somebody flushes the toilet or turns on the kitchen faucet the temperature of your shower will remain the same.
- Piston. As the thermostatic element expands with an increase in heat, the attached piston will move across the entry portals for the hot and cold water flows, reducing the amount of hot water and increasing the amount of cold water, helping to maintain a constant temperature.
- Thermostatic radiator valves, or TRVs, are the name of the valves on the side of your radiator that are numbered 1 to 5. TRVs work by sensing the air temperature adjacent to the radiator and turning the flow of hot water to the radiator on or off depending on if the air temperature is above or below the setpoint.
- This will cause the following symptoms:
- Low evaporator (suction) pressure;
- High evaporator and compressor superheats;
- Low compressor amp draw;
- Short-cycling on the low-pressure control;
- Somewhat high discharge temperature;
- Low condensing (head) pressure;
- Low condenser split; and.
Tempering Valves (Hot Water Mixing Valves) Explained. A tempering valve mixes your hot and cold water to deliver hot tap water at a constant temperature. Tempering valves have a temperature sensitive element which adjusts the mix depending on the temperature of the incoming water flowing through the valve.

- Balancing is achieved using the balancing or “lockshield” valve — the one at the opposite end of the radiator to the main on/off wheel valve or TRV. The term “lockshield” means that once adjusted, the valve is shielded with a plastic cap that prevents it being accidentally changed.
- A thermostatic radiator valve measures the room temperature and regulates the radiator temperature accordingly. The radiator temperature is controlled through the thermostat on your central heating system and the manual valve is only used to turn the radiator on and off.
