Anti-Scald Device - TAFR

When you turn on the hot water in your home it will gradually get warmer and warmer and can sometimes get too hot. Our Anti Scald device will ensure the water stays at a safe temperature so you don’t have to worry about scalding. This automatic temperature control technology is not only for your sink. We also provide a shower anti scald device to ensure your loved ones are able to shower in comfort if the water gets too hot or increases temperature suddenly from a flushing toilet or other change in your home.

The technical term for these Anti-Scald Devices is TAFR or Temperature Activated Flow Reducer. These automatic temperature control devices are easy to install and screw-on. Once you have installed the temperature controlled faucet, it will automatically turn off the water if the temperature gets too hot. Install one at the bathroom sink, shower, and kitchen sink and put your mind at ease, knowing that the chance of an accidental, severe burn is now greatly reduced.



Fitting Guide

Anti-Scald Fitting

The most basic thing you need to know about your faucet in order to add an Anti-Scalding device is the threading - either male or female. If your faucet has threads on the outside, it is male threaded - which means you need to use just the FEMALE threaded component. Conversely, if your faucet has threads on the inside, it is female threaded and you'll need to use the included MALE threaded adapter. Our anti-scald devices work on both MALE and FEMALE faucets and pipes!

Our Anti-Scald devices work on "REGULAR" size plumbing. Typical "REGULAR" size for a faucet aerator is 15/16" male threaded or 55/64" female threaded, while "Junior" size is 13/16" male threaded or 3/4" female threaded. Some faucets use a smaller "Tom Thumb" metric-size aerator, which is M18x1 male threaded or M16x1 female threaded. If your faucet or pipe is not "REGULAR" you will need an additional adapter. But wait! Before you get out your tape measure, there's a very easy way to tell what size your plumbing is.

Example of faucet sizes

First, take the existing aerator off your faucet or shower head off the stem - usually these just unscrew, although you may need a wrench if it's on there tight. Then grab some spare change from the couch or your rainy day jar, specifically a quarter, a nickel, and a dime. Place the coins over the aerator/connector. If your current aerator/connection is about the size of a quarter, you have a "REGULAR" sized fixture!

If it's about the size of a nickel, you have a "Junior" size aerator. If your aerator is approximately the size of a dime, you have a "Tom Thumb" size aerator. Both "Junior" and Tom Thumb" sizes will need an adapter that you can purchase from the hardware store.

Our new scald protector works perfect. I bought it for my bathroom sink in my daycare. Nice pressure when needed and shuts down quickly when it gets hot.

i have a daycare and per state licensing my water temp needs to be under 120. This seems like it would be perfect.

Thank you so much. I have a home childcare and have been having issues with the hot water being to hot. This product is absolutely perfect. I wish I found this when my own kids were little.

5 of 5 Just what I needed September 20, 2016
Reviewer: Rebecca from Bloomington, MN United States  
Shipping was fast and affordable. Service was personal. The product I needed is actually for use with children whose safety needs can be similar to the eldery or those with alzheimer's
