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

Basins 41°c

Showers 41°c

Bidets 38°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,
