VALVE COVER
1 ) Remove the control handle and unscrew the centre screw of the valve cover. Take off the valve cover.
2 ) Rotate the exposed thermostatic spindle (clockwise for cold, and anti-clockwise for hot) until the maximum desired showering temperature is set.
The suggested maximum “pre-set” temperature is 42°C.
3 ) Without any move at the spindle, replace the valve cover so that limit stop up to the right hand side of the limit stop on the cartridge.
4 ) Then refit the temperature control handle.
Commissioning & Annual Test
The installation of thermostatic mixing valves must comply with the requirement of the Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulations 1999.
TMV2 approve valve must be tested once a year, to check if it is out of the original maximum temperature set.
1. Prepare a calibrated thermometer.
2. Adjust to maximum water temperature.
3. Allow water running 5 seconds for stability, measure the mixed water temperature at the outlet.
• The mixed water temperature at the outlet should never exceed 42°C for showers.
• The mixed water temperature at the outlet should never exceed 46°C for bath filler.
Note:
46°C is the maximum mixed water temperature from the bath tap. The maximum temperature takes account of the allowable temperature
tolerances inherent in thermostatic mixing valves and temperature losses in metal baths. It is not a safe bathing temperature for adults or children.
The British Burns Association recommends 37 to 37.5°C as a comfortable bathing temperature for children. In premises covered by the Care
Standards Act 2000, the maximum mixed water outlet temperature is 43°C.
IF NOT, then the adjustment of the temperature is necessary following the “ Temperature Setting ”
4. Close the isolating valve at the Cold water supply. While the flowing is residual, and the water temperature has no any change
obviously from the initial maximum temperatue set.
5. Reopen the Cold supply, retest the water temperature. if also having no change obviously. Then the valve is working correctly, no further
service work is required.

This product should only be fitted by a qualified plumber to NVQ (National Vocational
Qualification) or SNVQ (Scottish National Vocational Qualification) Level 3. Should the
installation be completed by a non-qualified person then the guarantee may be considered
invalid.
For a claim made under our warranty written certification of your installers credentials can be
required. For further information or to find a qualified installer in your area please visit the
Institute of Plumbers website - www.iphe.org.uk
THE QUALIFICATIONS
At present, to be a plumber you need to follow the National Vocational Qualification (NVQ)
route (Scottish National Vocational Qualification - SNVQ - in Scotland). These qualifications
are made up of theory and practical work in the classroom/purpose built training facility and
work based experience with a working plumber. Colleges should help students find a work
placement, although many students organise it themselves.
The S/NVQ qualification works in levels. All recently qualified plumbers should hold S/NVQ
Level 2 as basic with Level 3 as the preferred level. Level 2 will give you the foundation you
need for a career in plumbing and teach you domestic plumbing to a satisfactory level. Level
3 is more comprehensive and deals with domestic, commercial and industrial plumbing along
with aspects such as gas - if you want to one day set up your own business, this is the level
to reach. The Institute of Plumbing and Heating Engineering, and the industry as a whole
recommends that all plumbers reach a minimum of Level 3.
Reaching Level 3 has other advantages. The Institute runs a Master Plumber Certificate,
which only those attaining Level 3 or equivalent can reach as long as they have the relevant
experience as well. Those with S/NVQ Level 3 can (once in membership with the Institute for
five years as a Member MIPHE) gain Engineering Technician EngTech status with the
Engineering Council (UK).

INSTRUCTION
Safe Warning
The function of a thermostatic mixing valve is to deliver water consistently at a safe
temperature. In keeping with every other mechanism, it can’t be considered as functionally
infallible and as such, can’t totally replace a supervisor’s vigilance where that is necessary.
Provided it is installed, commissioned,operated and maintained within manufacturer’s
recommendations, the risk of failure, if not eliminated, is reduced to the minimum
achievable.
Adora thermostatic mixers are precision engineered and should give continued safe and
controlled performance, provided:
1. They are installed, commissioned, operated and maintained in accordance with the
manufacturer’s recommendations.
2. Periodic attention is given, when necessary, to maintain the product in good functional
order.

1 ) Remove the control handle and unscrew the centre screw of the valve cover. Take off the valve cover.
2 ) Rotate the exposed thermostatic spindle (clockwise for cold, and anti-clockwise for hot) until the maximum desired showering temperature is set.
The suggested maximum “pre-set” temperature is 42°C.
3 ) Without any move at the spindle, replace the valve cover so that limit stop up to the right hand side of the limit stop on the cartridge.
4 ) Then refit the temperature control handle.
Commissioning & Annual Test
The installation of thermostatic mixing valves must comply with the requirement of the Water Supply (Water Fittings) Regulations 1999.
TMV2 approve valve must be tested once a year, to check if it is out of the original maximum temperature set.
1. Prepare a calibrated thermometer.
2. Adjust to maximum water temperature.
3. Allow water running 5 seconds for stability, measure the mixed water temperature at the outlet.
• The mixed water temperature at the outlet should never exceed 42°C for showers.
• The mixed water temperature at the outlet should never exceed 46°C for bath filler.
Note:
46°C is the maximum mixed water temperature from the bath tap. The maximum temperature takes account of the allowable temperature
tolerances inherent in thermostatic mixing valves and temperature losses in metal baths. It is not a safe bathing temperature for adults or children.
The British Burns Association recommends 37 to 37.5°C as a comfortable bathing temperature for children. In premises covered by the Care
Standards Act 2000, the maximum mixed water outlet temperature is 43°C.
IF NOT, then the adjustment of the temperature is necessary following the “ Temperature Setting ”
4. Close the isolating valve at the Cold water supply. While the flowing is residual, and the water temperature has no any change
obviously from the initial maximum temperatue set.
5. Reopen the Cold supply, retest the water temperature. if also having no change obviously. Then the valve is working correctly, no further
service work is required.

Remedy: Adjuster the water heater, increase hot water temperature to 65°C
2. Crossflow, cold water being forced into hot water pipe, or vice versa, when valve is closed
Cause: check valves dirty or leaking
Remedy: Clean the check valves or exchange if necessary
3. Very low flow or no flow
Cause: Supply pressure inadequate
Remedy: Check hot and cold feeds. If a pump has been installed, please check to see if the pump is working.
(the valve will shut down if either the cold or hot water supply fails)
4. Water will not run hot enough when first installed

This product should only be fitted by a qualified plumber to NVQ (National Vocational
Qualification) or SNVQ (Scottish National Vocational Qualification) Level 3. Should the
installation be completed by a non-qualified person then the guarantee may be considered
invalid.
For a claim made under our warranty written certification of your installers credentials can be
required. For further information or to find a qualified installer in your area please visit the
Institute of Plumbers website - www.iphe.org.uk
THE QUALIFICATIONS
At present, to be a plumber you need to follow the National Vocational Qualification (NVQ)
route (Scottish National Vocational Qualification - SNVQ - in Scotland). These qualifications
are made up of theory and practical work in the classroom/purpose built training facility and
work based experience with a working plumber. Colleges should help students find a work
placement, although many students organise it themselves.
The S/NVQ qualification works in levels. All recently qualified plumbers should hold S/NVQ
Level 2 as basic with Level 3 as the preferred level. Level 2 will give you the foundation you
need for a career in plumbing and teach you domestic plumbing to a satisfactory level. Level
3 is more comprehensive and deals with domestic, commercial and industrial plumbing along
with aspects such as gas - if you want to one day set up your own business, this is the level
to reach. The Institute of Plumbing and Heating Engineering, and the industry as a whole
recommends that all plumbers reach a minimum of Level 3.
Reaching Level 3 has other advantages. The Institute runs a Master Plumber Certificate,
which only those attaining Level 3 or equivalent can reach as long as they have the relevant
experience as well. Those with S/NVQ Level 3 can (once in membership with the Institute for
five years as a Member MIPHE) gain Engineering Technician EngTech status with the
Engineering Council (UK).

recommendations, the risk of failure, if not eliminated, is reduced to the minimum
achievable.
Adora thermostatic mixers are precision engineered and should give continued safe and
controlled performance, provided:
1. They are installed, commissioned, operated and maintained in accordance with the
manufacturer’s recommendations.
2. Periodic attention is given, when necessary, to maintain the product in good functional
order.
