Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pretty easy to assemble-DOES need some cutting First and foremost, we have hot showers again!! We have a valve that controls the upstairs water and it had gone bad. I did a bunch of searching and reading reviews, this one seemed easiest and best quality. It was pretty easy to install (had someone do it but watched the whole thing). Glad I did though, because you WILL need to cut old connections off and I thought that was the case. But after watching it I am very confident anyone can do this as long as the have pipe cutters (pvc). Very good product produces very hot water, haven't temped it but if my wife says its hot enough you shouldn't need anything hotter!

The issues we were trying to resolve was way too hot domestic water from the furnace and an old non pressure balancing valve in the shower. This product solved both issues. The water temperature was set to approximately 108 degrees F. We run all hot water in the shower. No more blasts of changing water temperature when a faucet is opened somewhere else in the house. The SharkBite fittings work very well. Removing the inserts that are shipped in the fitting for PEX tubing wasn't as easy as the instructions implied. However, they do pull out with a pair of needle nose pliers.

Questions

What is the difference between an HG 110 and an HG 160? I am looking for a mixing valve to reduce water temp from solar collecting panels into a on demand water heater.

Asked by: Robspike
Good morning, The difference is the standards these meet. HG 110 is triple listed. This means it can be installed at Point of Use (at the sink/faucet), Point of Source (at the water heater/boiler) or for multi-outlets ( "Gang Showers" or multiple sinks as seen in public restrooms). The HG 160 is only designed and certified for Point of Use or multi-outlets.
