The function of a shower valve is to regulate water flow while maintaining the correct pressure and temperature. Shower valves are a crucial component of plumbing systems that use industrial tools.
Today there are many different types of shower valves available. Each type of valve has a specific purpose and application. When buying a new shower valve, you need to make sure that it is the right one for your application. The following are some important factors to consider:
How much pressure do you need? Pressure, or head, is the amount of water that you apply to the shower floor. Therefore, higher pressure will cause more water to flow through the valve. Some shower valves, like trickle valves and ball valves, don't have a pressure rating because they are used to regulate the water flow to a certain volume. For example, you can't leave a trickle valve open for a whole day, because that can create problems for your plumbing system.
The temperature of the water is also important. Higher temperatures will reduce the rate of corrosion and increase the life of the valve.
How frequently do you need to replace the valve? This is related to the use of your shower. You should replace your shower valve every two to five years depending on how often you use your shower. However, if you shower regularly, you may want to replace it every year. If you have a perfect-shower system, you may not need to replace your shower valve until it has been installed for a year.
