Description for Watts 0206010

Watts 1170-M2, L1170-M2 Hot Water Temperature Control Valves are specifically designed for mixing hot and cold water on hot water supply systems. They can be used for a variety of applications to reduce the temperature of the hot water from the system, and are ideal for radiant heat applications. This series features a "double throttling" design which combines the control of the hot and cold water to provide a sensitive response to changes in water temperature passing through the mixing chamber. The Watts 1170-M2 can be set to any temperature between 90+F and 160+F (60+F and 120+F for model L1170-M2) with flow rates as low as 0.5 gpm and as high as 23 gpm. The superior flow characteristics of this valve provide accurate temperature control to the requirements of ASSE 1017 across the rated flow range. These valves also provide additional safety as they restrict mixed water out to a drip upon loss of cold water supply to the valve. As an added feature, the 1170-M2, L1170-M2 series incorporates integral check valves and filter washers in both the hot and cold water inlets to protect against cross flow. Maximum Pressure: 150psi (10 bar).

                    Ordered the item on-line, through the most descriptive catalog I found. The item installed as expected and is much easier to adjust and set than earlier versions of similar mixing valves. I had a very positive experience, and would go this route again!

                                      Used this in a solar hot water setup to prevent nighttime reverse flow, filling system through panels using an auxiliary spigot, and allowing use of a circ pump in parallel.

                                      Seems robust and well made, but density of material required LOTS of heat to sweat piping. Fortunately the valve did not distort, but when sweating, be careful not to use too much solder on the IN side, or else angle the IN side down if possible when sweating. Otherwise solder might flow into valve seating area and you'll have to disconnect and scrape it out.

                                            It was easy to install at the water heater using 3 24-inch copper flex tubes.

                                            With this mixing valve I increased the effective amount of hot water from my small electric heater by about 40%. I did this by increasing the tank temperature to 160 F while using the mixing valve to keep the tap temperature at 130 F.

                                              My daughters new home barely has warm water coming from the hot water tank.There is aperiod of perhape 3 seconds when water is uncomfortably hot. There could not possibly be any sanitizing /steralizing action. by this water for clothes,dishes or or bodies. I discovered this mixing valve on top of the hot water tank. The handle has the following info"Watts 1070c-M2" mixing valve. I can find no info on the valve in the hwtk info. I finally discovered the mixing valve. A surprising observation was that the cold water supply(inlet) is probably hotter than the hot water outlet. Having a maintenance background I would expect to be able to adjust the valve but so far could not budge the handle. Reluctant to use brute force w/o some info on how the valve is supposed to work. I found the water heater to be set to maximum temperature. I see this to be rather dangerous. I reduced the temp to ~115 deg from 190 Deg. Do you have any info on how the valve works and how to set it up?

                                              how much do these valves restrict the water flow through them? I have two alpha pumps, one on a radiant manifold after the mixing valve, and another on a baseboard manifold. The baseboard pump delivers 6 gpm and the radiant only 2. I provided bypass loops directly between send and return manifold for the radiant to eliminate the concern of head causing the differences and there was no change. I switched the pumps and no change. Bad valve restricting the flow?

                                              does this control without the use of a controller? if so, how does the valve move to maintain temperature? and, do they come in lower temp ranges?

                                                This is a manual mixing valve. You would manually set it to whatever temperature you would like within the range indicated. For the same mixing valve with a lower temperature range, there are several on our website. They are model: L1170-UT M2, which are low-temp mixing valves. You can view these models on the following link on our website: http://www.pexsupply.com/Watts-1170-Mixing-Valves-709000
