What temperature should my hot tap water be running at?
The temperature of stored hot water should be in the range of 60°c to 65°c and the temperature of distributed hot water should be greater than 50°c.
Under normal conditions the temperature of the stored water should never exceed 65°c.
A stored water temperature of 60°c is considered sufficient to meet all normal requirements.
For healthcare premises, the following recommended mixing valve outlet temperature settings are:
Baths supervised 46°c
Baths unsupervised 44°c
Also if you have ever wondered what is the correct side for the hot tap to be on, it should as a matter of good practice always be on the left hand side to assist the elderly, disabled and especially the bind in identifying between the hot and cold taps,
