 I need thermostatic mixing valve on my salon sink
Author: Roneekay (NJ)

I have a backwash salon sink. NJ requires me to have thermostatic mixing valve or water tempering valve. Is it a part on the sink or do it have to be installed in the pipes?

assuming they want you to limit the temperature of the hot water at the faucet then you need one of these installed below the sink..

That's very 'code specific'. You need someone that is well versed in the plumbing code for your area.

in that case i would contact a 'beauty parlor supplier' in your area. they sell the sinks and faucets that are not available in regular plumbing supply houses.

A plain mixing valve, will not meet the "plus/minus" 1/4 degree requirement. You need an anti scalding device that controls the hot mix. This would be called a thermostatic-anti-scalding valve. Leonard, Bradley, Simmons and Powers are just a few of the popular Manufacturers.

Not all thermostatic mixing valves are alike. Physically they appear the same, but there is differences in the way they are manufactured. There are ones that are designed for use in convalescent homes, for instance.
