  • Remote tempering valves on roman tubs

    Are they requiring them in your area? Just started here on permits dated after Jan 1. F'ing PITA. Just another labor burning cost we have to pass along, if we can.

          since you cannot use the water heater, put a mixing valve sized for the demand at the heater. I guess I should poke my nose in my code book.

            On my jobs putting an ASSE 1017 at the WH usually means a 1-1/4" or even an 1-1/2" unit which translates into $$$$. Plus 1017 tempering valves usually need servicing after about 5 years, depending on the quality of the water. Cheaper to put a ASSE 1070 at the tub. When it needs service, it only affects one fixture, not the whole house.

              Honeywell has an AM-1 that should be rated for 10-15gpm. Either by itself or on a small house they work well and very little maintenance and maybe $50. Should be 1017.
