    Tempering valve - adds cold water to prevent the outflow temp getting too high and burning yer arse in the shower.
    Cats have nine lives-which makes them ideal for experimentation...

    cheers,
    may be working to well, missus was bitching the shower was cold this morning.
    Any plumbers in the Hutt Valley (Stokes Valley) available any time Wednesday or after work one evening?
    I think the valve behind it needs replacing to as it doesn't want to turn more than 15deg either way

    Actually.... it's an Apex 3 in 1 valve. You need to replace the pressure limiting cartridge part of it and you'll be leak free in no time.
