Do you need your commercial TMV tested? A TMV (or thermostatic testing valve) can be an indispensable part of a setup, which requires a constant supply of moderate-temperature water.
You will find these valves in commercial spaces like medical facilities, beauty salons, retirement homes, etc.
And if you have ever operated TMVs, you’d know that they can be prone to damage or malfunction, just like any other plumbing fixture. However, fixing them isn’t something you should do the DIY way, and the best way to prevent such issues is to go for commercial TMV testing.
So, you should always contact licensed TMV plumbers for the purpose, and Big Blue Plumbing can come to your rescue!
Signs That Your TMV Is Malfunctioning
The most obvious sign of a faulty or malfunctioning TMV valve is a sudden change in the water temperature. For example, the water flow can become too cold or hot, which can be caused if there’s a blockage or the valve has been displaced from its right position. Besides, a damaged O-ring can cause a fluctuation in the water pressure, temperature, or both.
You may also have faulty parts or corrosion in the valve that can cause a moderate to severe leak, and the water can flood the floor, causing intensive damage to the foundation of the building. For example, in the case of showers, you will observe a constant leak even if the shower water supply valve is shut off.
Who Should Get Their TMV Tested?

- Childcare facilities
- Shopping malls
- Medical facilities, like hospitals, nursing homes and care facilities
