Deck Mount Thermostatic Control Valve 5 Piece Faucet Set for Walk-In Tubs
The purpose of a Thermostatic Control Valve (TCV) is to regulate the temperature of water before it reaches your faucet. It ensures constant temperature of water by blending hot water with cold water to prevent scalding or thermal shock.
The optional Ella 5 Piece Faucet Set includes a deck mounted thermostatic control valve, spout, pull-out hand shower, spout diverter, and pull-out shower diverter. While many state codes require a thermostatic control valve, it is important to note the difference in fill time between a faucet using a thermostatic control valve and a standard fast fill faucet. While Ella’s fast fill faucets can fill up 18 GPM (gallons per minute), faucets using a thermostatic control valve can only fill 7-8 GPM- depending on your home plumbing conditions. Additionally, faucets that use a thermostatic control valve will require service maintenance especially in areas with poor water quality or water high in calcium that can create build ups.
Thermostatic Control Valve Features:
- Adjustable water temperature preset
- No water temperature fluctuation at the faucet
- Prevents scalding and thermal shock
