Water Piping


HOTTER WATER CAN SCALD: Water heaters are
intended to produce hot water. Water heated to a

temperature which will satisfy clothes washing,

dish washing, and other sanitizing needs can scald

and permanently injure you upon contact. Some


eople are more likely to be permanently injured by

ot water than others. These include the elderly,

children, the infirm, or physically/mentally handi­

capped. If anyone using not water in your home fits

into one of these groups or if there is a local code or
state law requiring a certain temperature water at

the hot water tap, then you must take special pre­

cautions. In addition to using the lowest possible

temperature setting that satisfies your hot water

needs, a means sucri as a mixing valve, should be
used at the hot water taps used by these people or

at the water heater. Mixing valves are available at

plumbing supply or hardware stores. Follow manu­

facturers instructions for installation of the valves.

Before changing the factory setting on the thermo­

stat, read the "Temperature Regulation" section in

this manuai.
