A bath or shower valve is a small component part that is designed to control the flow of water from your bathtub or shower. They help to ensure you aren't hit with a sudden gush of water or experience temperature differences, either.


  • Mixing valve. Like the name implies, a mixing valve pulls in water from both your hot and cold water taps and mixes them, so you have the perfect shower temperature. However, if a toilet flushes and cold water is used elsewhere in the house, the water can become exceedingly hot.
  • Pressure balancing valve. These types of valves are the most common in Columbia households. Also called anti-scald valves, this type of valve balances the water pressure so the water doesn't become scalding.
  • Thermostatic valve. This high-tech valve adjusts the flow of water based on the change in the temperature that it senses. Thus, it controls both water pressure and temperature.
  • Diverter valve. A diverter valve is the type of valve you will see in a bathroom with a tub and shower combo. They direct water from the tub to the shower. There are tee, two-valve, and three-valve diverters available.
  • Transfer valve. Transfer valves transfer the flow of water to multiple plumbing fixtures without having to turn the water off. Thus, if you have a handheld shower head and a regular shower head, you can just turn a dial.
