    Do the thermostatic mixer taps for baths that are a shower too. Struggle when running a bath as. The temperature is limited? For showering purposes.

    They usually have temp stop buttons (38deg for showering) that can then be clicked in and then the outlet temp can be increased again if say filling the bath.

    So you can click out of the mixed anti scald setting for filling bath to get the temperature of the water up?

    What about the temperature control,
    it will control the temperature to whatever you set it to ?

    All thermostatic bath/shower mixers will have a temp stop, where the set temp is 38Deg at that point, you then push in the button and can turn the temp further up to ~45Deg.
