A mixing valve is an anti-scald device, that when plumbed into the hot water outlet of the water heater, allows the temperature of the water desired at the taps to be set. Cold water will mix with hot water in the valve sending the correct temperature water to the faucets. By using this system, members can get up to 40 gallons more usable hot water per day out of their storage system.
This is an excellent option for growing families as their daily water needs increase. It also allows for a single water heater instead of two heaters to participate in the storage program, in many cases.
