In response to Re: how does the "anti scald valve" work?
There are two interpetations of "anti scald". One has a thermostat that controls the temperature. Depending on its sensitivity, it can allow hotter/colder water for a short time as it tries to compensate for a major variance. There are also pressure balanced valves that maintain an equal pressure in the hot and cold sides to prevent the sudden burst of hot water when the cold water pressure drops due to a toilet flushing, for example.

: I have often wondered what the principle behind the "antiscald valve" was, on a bathtub single lever system.Just how that valve was made that it could sense when water was too hot.
