    The Importance of Regular TMV Servicing

    Precision mechanical valves called TMVs regulate water temperatures, keeping them within a safe range. Typically between 39°C and 43°C. However, various factors can compromise these valves over time. Factors such as; scale build-up, worn components, or changes in water supply conditions. Failure to service TMVs regularly can lead to potential safety hazards like scalding incidents or exposure to Legionella bacteria.

    FAQs (TMV Servicing & Maintenance)

    How often should TMVs be serviced?

    TMVs should undergo regular servicing and maintenance to ensure their proper functioning. The frequency depends on various factors, such as the usage, water quality, and manufacturer’s recommendations. Generally, TMVs should be serviced at least annually, or more frequently in high-risk or high-traffic areas.

    Neglecting regular TMV servicing can lead to potential safety hazards, including scalding incidents, exposure to Legionella bacteria, and non-compliance with regulations. Poorly maintained TMVs may fail to regulate water temperatures accurately or fail to shut off the hot water supply in case of supply failures.
