While this high temperature guarantees safe water quality, we do understand that this temperature is very hot. Older people who have more sensitive skin, may have restricted movement and be unable to react quickly. They are consequently more vulnerable to scalding, especially if ‘stuck’ in a bath or shower.
The temperature of the hot water cannot be ‘turned down’ via our appliance due to the risk of bacterial build up within your pipework, but it can be reduced at the outlet itself through the installation of a thermostatic control.
We are delighted to be able to offer a range of thermostatically controlled products which will control and significantly reduce the temperature of water you use for showering, bathing, and hand washing.
These products conform to the highest British safety standards and mix the hot and cold supplies to a pre- determined safe temperature, consequently allowing a far more comfortable water temperature and significantly reducing the risk of scalding in the home.
