How To Adjust Your Thermostatic Shower Temperature

A thermostatic shower valve is an ingenious piece of technology that ensures your showering experience is both safe and enjoyable. With the capability to maintain your desired water temperature precisely, it eliminates the risk of sudden temperature changes that can lead to scalding or cold shocks.

However, to fully enjoy these benefits, you may need to adjust the temperature settings of your thermostatic shower valve to suit your personal preference.

At Tapron UK, we understand the importance of a perfectly tailored shower experience. This guide will walk you through the process of adjusting the temperature on your thermostatic shower valve, specifically focusing on our 2 outlet shower valves.

Understanding Thermostatic Shower Valves

Thermostatic shower valves are designed to mix hot and cold water to your pre-selected temperature and maintain it throughout your shower, regardless of changes in the water supply.

The 2 outlet valves offer the flexibility to control two different shower functions - such as a fixed showerhead and a handheld one - simultaneously or separately, all while keeping the water temperature constant.

Step-by-Step Guide to Adjusting Temperature

1. Locate the Temperature Control

Firstly, identify the temperature control on your thermostatic shower valve. In most 2 outlet models, this is distinctly marked and separate from the flow controls.

2. Remove the Safety Stop (if applicable)

Many thermostatic valves come with a safety stop set at 38°C (100°F) to prevent accidental scalding. To adjust the temperature beyond this point, you may need to engage or disengage this safety feature. This is usually done by pushing, pulling, or turning the stop button or lever located near the temperature control.

3. Adjust the Temperature

Turn the temperature control knob or lever to your desired setting. If you're increasing the temperature, do so gradually to find your ideal warmth level without risking scalding.

4. Test the Temperature

Allow the water to run for a few minutes and test the temperature. Adjustments might take a short while to stabilize. It's advisable to use a thermometer to verify the water temperature, especially if you prefer settings above the standard safety stop.

5. Secure the Settings

Once you've found your perfect temperature setting, ensure all parts are secure. For valves requiring you to disengage a safety stop, make sure to re-engage it after adjustment to prevent accidental changes.

Tips for Optimal Use

  • Regular Maintenance: Regularly clean your showerhead and valves to prevent limescale buildup, which can affect temperature accuracy.
  • Consult the Manual: Always refer to your specific model's manual for detailed instructions, as mechanisms can vary between different thermostatic valves.
  • Consider Professional Help: If you're unsure about making adjustments yourself, consider hiring a professional to ensure your shower valve is set up correctly.
