Household water mixer taps cannot handle unbalanced water pressure!

What does this mean?

It basically means that your water pressure being unbalanced is reducing the lifespan of your expensive water mixer. If you ask any non-plumbing person they will have no idea what you are talking about.

Ever struggle to find the perfect water temperature when in the shower? turning the mixer slightly to the right and a gush of cold water splashes you?


Normally the cold water will pressure will exceed the pressure of the hot water as the water from the geyser is maintained by a PRV (Pressure Reducing Valve) this valve protects the geyser from blowing up.

This does speed up the damage done to your mixer. Get in touch with us or your local plumber to assist with the balancing of your water pressure. If they cannot help you, phone us!!
