Thermostatic Temperature Control

Thermostatic temperature stop at 42°C

Thermostatic control means that this shower will hold its temperature steady at all times. It dynamically adjusts the mix of hot and cold water offsetting the everyday changes in water pressure experienced in most family homes. However, this shower goes one step further and stops at 42°C to prevent scalding.

TMV2 Scheme

Thermostatic temperature control

Thermostatic mixing valves (TMV) are built into things like showers to protect users from sudden changes in water temperature. A blast of cold is uncomfortable but hot water can be very damaging to vulnerable users. A TMV2 in particular is a thermostatic mixing valve for use in domestic properties, keeping you and your family safe at all times whilst showering.

Bristan showers have excellent features, and the Bristan Regency Thermostatic Shower Valve with Adjustable Riser Chrome is an elegant, classically styled showering option which includes many advanced safety features to make the perfect choice for family use.

The dual lever exposed shower valve gives you precise control over the flow and temperature of the water. The exterior crosshead control is for the temperature and the lever behind controls the flow. Each one has a white ceramic detail which contrasts beautifully with the bright shiny chrome. The shower hose exits from the base of the valve and attaches to an elegant single function handset with a round head. This fits into the adjustable holder which slides effortlessly up and down the riser to give you a variety of showering heights for all members of the family. The handset unclips easily from the holder and the 1.5-metre hose extends to wherever you need water. The incorporated hose retainer keeps the hose in place while showering.

The thermostatic cartridge has a pre-set temperature stop at 42°C, which can be altered if desired, and there is an automatic cut out system in the event of a dramatic drop in water pressure. This shower maintains a constant temperature and compensates for any changes in the incoming water supply to maintain the selected temperature to within one degree. It comes with a choice of flow regulators of 5L/Min or 7L/min.

The Bristan Regency Thermostatic Shower Valve with Adjustable Riser Chrome is ideal for retrofitting with variable brackets and adjustable distance between the inlets, and it comes with a comprehensive 5-year manufacturer’s guarantee for worry-free showering.

    I was so pleased with this shower that I bought exactly the same again for the en-suite. I bought this to replace an old shower unit that that had pipes 155mm apart and there appear to be loads on the market that are 150mm but very few at 155mm - but this shower unit is fully adjustable and it works really well and fitted perfectly. It looks stunning and has a real quality feel. I would recommend.

    I needed to replace an old existing Bristan 1901 Shower, Plumbworld provided the perfect replacement at a very resonable price. They were a able to provide the same model which was ideal as there was no extensive fitting to carry out & their speedy delivery was excellent. Will definitely use again in the future when updating my downstairs cloakroom.

    Purchased to replace earlier version which was leaking, seized internally and covered in limescale. Fitting was easy since mounting holes already there. Important to select the appropriate flow restrictor for your system.

    Replaced a large mixer valve with this smaller version. All reasonable quality but the shower head isn't. A let down really. Only issue was the flow restrictors. Followed guide for full pressure combi boiler. Flow ok(ish) but not compared to previous flow. Removed restrictors completely and much better. Now sorted out looks good and everyone happy.

    Orded this item to replace an old dripping unit. Looked the same as the old one so thought I would give it a go. (How hard can it be) Very impressed with the service and the unit, if a little smaller than appeared. All fitted fine and well happy with the end result. Will use plumworlkd again. Thanks.

    Nice shower works well, when mounting the shower valve on the wall bracket, difficult to tighten the Allen screws. The Allen key is to short on the short side, could be a tad longer so that it turns below and past the shower hose connection. Otherwise a good shower set. 3 stars for this shower.

    Arrived quickly. Lovely design and easy to use unlike some showers. Great quality chrome finish. We were replacing with the exact same shower valve as the thermostat went on our old one.
