Bob "Hot Rod" Rohr, our training & education manager, joins forces with Kevin Freidt, our director of product management and technical support, during this month's webinar. The Dynamic Duo will answer and discuss your frequently asked questions regarding thermostatic mixing valves (TMVs) so that you can enjoy trouble-free operation. You'll learn:

- How do I select the right TMV for my application?
- How does a TMV work?
- What is the flow rate range for these?
- Some have check valves, some don’t; do I need them? Why?
- Can a TMV be used in chilled water applications?
- Can a TMV be installed upside-down?
- What happens if I have less flow than your specified minimum?
- How do I properly pipe a domestic hot water re-circulation system?
- How should TMVs be maintained?
- My mixing valve is not delivering hot water. It used to, why not now?
- I'm having recirculation temperature creep. What can I do?
- Is there a rebuild kit for these?
