Question: Janice asks: I read the reviews on the Integrated anti scald valve for the faucet. I need to purchase the device, however, I am having a very hard time locating a supply store which sells the device, specifically the one in the picture attached to the review.

I have seen larger anti scald devices, which fit on the sink which are rather long and leaves me having to wash my hand in the bottom of the sink because there is no space between the device and the base of the sink. PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!

Answer:

If you are inquiring about the Powers TempTap faucet seen in our review, you can find where to purchase one by finding a sales rep in your area. The company’s website has a search tool for sales reps in each state. The Chicago Faucet Shoppe also sells them at their online store.Hi Janice, thank you for your question about anti-scald devices for your sink.

However, it seems like you want a device that you can attach to your faucet rather than an entirely new faucet. To solve the problem of the attachment coming down too low in the sink, try an under-the-counter tempering valve, also referred to as a faucet mixing valve. These regulate the water temperature underneath the sink rather than in the sink, so it won’t affect your hand-washing experience.

Powers also sells a number of these in their HydroGuard line. Again, you can find where to buy these through the sales rep finder tool. The Chicago Faucet Shoppe also sells these faucet water temperature mixing valves.

A quick search on Amazon also showed a good number of results.

Best of luck!
