Outdoor faucets are a convenient addition for many homeowners, but those in cold climates are often limited in their valve choices. Outdoors valves that offer both hot and cold water are even more rare. Now, though, homeowners have an option with the TrueTemp, an outdoor single-handle hot and cold valve.

The valve from PRIER Products provides a year-round source of tempered water to areas of structures that are subject to freezing temperatures. The hydrant valve is connected to the supply piping in the heated portion of the structure, reducing the possibility of freezing. The temperature is controlled by the dial inset on the handle, while the handle itself controls the flow of water. The new valve combines the time-tested success of PRIER Products’ frost-proof hydrants with cutting-edge technology, providing tempered water for any use outside of the home. Homeowners can now wash their cars any time of year, bathe their dogs in comfort or tackle outdoor cleaning with ease.

“This is a premium product comparable to the finest design-build interior kitchen faucets,” says Nick Manning, president at PRIER Products. “However, this valve is designed to be installed outside in the elements, and that’s what differentiates it from so many other products.”

Designed with the stylish homeowner in mind, the TrueTemp is available in two finishes: satin nickel plated and oil-rubbed bronze. Both options begin with a heavy, cast brass base, and then are given high-quality finishes and rubber grip handle to complete the high-end look.  

“We are thrilled with the feedback we’ve received from our reps and customers who have seen this product,” says Scott Livingston, national sales manager of PRIER Products. “We’re already hearing from people in the field about the TrueTemp. They love the way it looks, the easy installation and how it is unique to this industry.”

The valve is equipped with an anti-siphon vacuum breaker with backflow check valve, internal checks to prevent thermal migration, and a solid brass body, valve stem cap, seat and stem ends. It is held together with durable stainless steel screws and comes with a stainless steel mounting bracket with screws. O-ring seals and an ergonomic rubber grip handle provide easy turning. It provides positive shut-off of hot water during cold flow. 800-362-9055; www.prier.com.
