LavSafe™ offers the easiest way to meet strict plumbing codes and standards like ASSE 1070, without requiring a separate thermostatic valve. With fewer parts and fewer leak points, you'll save on installation time, inventory, and you'll notice fewer callbacks for maintenance.

Scalding and Thermal Shock

Medical statistics reveal that scalding caused by hot water is the leading cause of severe burn injuries in the United States. Children under the age of five, the elderly, and people with mental and physical disabilities are more susceptible to scalding.

Thermal shock, on the other hand, is the physical reaction of a person to a rapid and uncomfortable change in water temperature-- whether hotter or colder. The danger of thermal shock lies within the individual’s sudden movement away from the water coming from the shower, which could cause a fall and/or serious injury.

Causes of Thermal Shock

  • Seasonal temperature changes in water supply
  • Improper adjustment of upstream master tempering valve
  • Failure of upstream tempering valve
  • Plumbing that is lacking temperature control devices
  • Improper plumbing maintenance or lack of maintenance
  • System pressure fluctuations, i.e. changing demand such as toilet flushing
  • Boiler/hot water heater malfunction
  • Improper valve selection (oversized) and/or hot water recirculation design
