Pressure Balance Mixer

Enjoy consistent temperatures in the shower with a pressure balance mixer from Mixermate Australia. No more sudden changes for a safer bathing experience.

There’s nothing worse than abrupt, severe temperature swings when taking a shower. One minute, you’re enjoying a warm, relaxing shower, and the next, you’re hit with a burst of scorching hot or icy cold water. Not only is this uncomfortable, but it can also be dangerous, especially for children, the elderly, or those with sensitive skin. That’s where pressure balance mixers come in – a simple but effective solution to ensure a safe and comfortable showering experience.

The Importance of Temperature Stability in Showers

Maintaining a consistent water temperature is essential for a comfortable and safe showering experience. Sudden fluctuations in temperature, whether scalding hot or icy cold, can pose serious risks, especially for vulnerable individuals such as the elderly, children, or those with mobility issues. Pressure balance mixers are designed to address this concern by automatically adjusting the water temperature to remain constant, regardless of changes in water pressure or supply.

How Pressure Balance Mixers Work

Pressure balance mixers utilise a special valve mechanism to regulate the ratio of hot and cold water flowing into the shower. When water pressure changes occur, such as someone flushing a toilet or turning on another faucet, the mixer adjusts the flow of hot and cold water to maintain a consistent temperature output. This ensures that the user is protected from sudden temperature spikes or drops, providing a safe and comfortable showering experience.

The Benefits of Pressure Balance Mixers

• Anti-Scald Protection – The most significant benefit of these mixers is their anti-scald protection. By maintaining a consistent water temperature, these mixers greatly reduce the risk of scalding or thermal shock. This is especially important in homes with young children, elderly residents, or those with disabilities who may not be able to react quickly to sudden temperature changes.

•  Easy to Use – Pressure balance mixers are designed with simplicity in mind. They typically have a single handle that controls both the water flow and temperature, making them easy to operate even for those with limited mobility or dexterity. No more fiddling with separate hot and cold taps – just turn the handle to your desired temperature and enjoy a comfortable shower.

•  Ideal for Care Facilities – In hospitals, nursing homes, retirement villages, and other care facilities, the safety and comfort of residents is paramount. They are an excellent choice for these settings, as they provide a level of protection and ease of use that traditional shower valves simply can’t match. Plus, with their durable construction and low maintenance requirements, they’re built to withstand the demands of high-use environments.
