Myth-busting – Electrical Safety installations Act 202011:19 AM, 3rd August 2020

Can anyone please pinpoint the legislation requiring landlords to fit thermostatic shower mixer valves in rental properties?
Possibly they are meant to protect vulnerable people in all tenanted properties? Or only required in HMOs? They are meant to greatly reduce the risk of scalding under a too-hot shower.
I was told years ago that they were a legal requirement, and have installed them ever since, but we are having more and more frequent problems with them sticking and not regulating properly. It seems to me that they cannot deal with the very hard water that we get on the edge of the Chilterns/Hertfordshire, and so are getting scaled up with limescale.
Is there a knowledgeable plumber or landlord here that can clarify, please?
