    Default Honeywell AM-1 Thermostatic Mixing Valves. ( water heater tempering )

    Honeywell AM-1 Series Thermostatic Mixing Valves. ( water heater tempering )
    Many plumbing codes require a tempering valve to prevent scalding if you have a tub that people bath in. A tempering valve takes the cold water and mixes it with hot water and dials it down to a suitable temperature.
    Some adjust between 70 F and 120 F
    And you can also get one that does 70 F to 145 F

    Raising the water in the tank to 140 F helps to prevent the growth of Legionella bacteria.

    higher to prevent legionella growth, but receive
    safe, comfortable 120 F water at sinks, shower
    or tub

    water by up to 50 percent
