      Just doing a quote for a beauty school and discovered that it is recommend that you put thermostatic mixing valves on shampoo basins. They are also putting in a shower with jets and spa and also a basin, do these also need the valves or can a tempering valve be used for all of the above?

      Tempering valves maintain a specific water temperature coming from the water heater source, but, do not prevent fluctuations at the fixture. That is why thermostatic and/or pressure balancing valves are required.

      You need a licensed plumber who knows the right valves to install on each one of the fixtures and the correct backflow preventers that are required by the plumbing code.

      Check with your local Plumbing Inspector I am sure he will steer you in the right direction on this issue.
