Reliance Worldwide Corporation (UK) Ltd® (RWC UK), is continuing to call on plumbing professionals to employ best practice on every installation and raise awareness of the need to install Thermostatic Mixing Valves (TMVs) in every home across the country, to help prevent the thousands of scalding injuries that happen every year.
As part of the ‘Hot Water Burns Like Fire’ lobbying campaign and in support of the Children’s Burns Trust and the Royal Society of the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA), RWC UK wants to see an end to costly accidents which have left so many scarred for life.
The benefits that TMVs bring are also really simple for installers to explain to customers. By blending the hot and cold water supply to a ‘safe’, controlled outlet temperature (a maximum of 46°C* for bath water, TMVs ensure the temperature of the water will not exceed the set point. Therefore RWC believes that the widespread adoption of TMVs would be a simple and cost-effective way to ensure greater water safety in UK homes and help to protect the lives of young, old and vulnerable people.
