(first post here so pls excuse any poor form etc ...)
I have recently taken over a children's nursery and need to do something to
regulate the temperature of the scaldingly hot water that issues from the
boiler fitted by the previous owner.
A plumber who recently did my Corgi cert said the boiler was very cheap and
nasty (Worcerster 24i RSF) but was actually installed properly and was
functioning correctly. He recommended fitting a thermostatic blend valve in
the system. Having looked at these online tonight it is clear that this is
exactly what I need. I am sufficicently sensible and capable with copper to
fit one myself, but I have a few questions before I make a right pig's ear
of it ...
High vs low pressure? The nursery has a sealed water system - does this
automatically make it high pressure?
How close to the taps should the valves be fitted? As close as possible I
I was planning to install them inline in the hot water pipes with a tee
across from the cold water to feed the blend water - is this the correct
(and simplest) way to do it?
Where is the best source for these valves - my local Travis Perkins Plumbing
Centre only keeps one flavour of valve and it doesn't look like an inline
type to me ...?
TMV2 , TMV3 - what's that all about then?
Any other pitfalls or top-tips I should be aware of?
Many thanks in advance
