Has this ever happened to you? You’re in the shower and someone flushes a toilet and WOW, the water goes from pleasantly warm to scalding hot! Most likely, you have an old style, “non pressure-balanced” shower valve. This is not only annoying, it’s also a safety hazard. Imagine your mother-in-law; no, imagine YOUR mother getting scalded by by this burning hot water, unable to adjust the water temperature or get out of the way fast enough to avoid being burned. We all know how that would make us feel. The remedy to this entirely avoidable nightmare is a pressure balanced shower valve. When someone flushes a toilet, or turns on a faucet, this valve keeps the hot and cold water volumes “balanced”, so that any temperature change will be a minor one. The cost of avoiding the above described scenario is well worth the piece of mind it will deliver. Even if it’s not your mother (or mother-in-law), none of us like getting scorched by burning hot water when it is easily avoidable. Call us at Sav-On Plumbing; we will come out and give you a free estimate on replacing your shower or tub/shower valves with new “pressure balanced” ones.
