We’re in hot water!

27 Feb

Corinne was quite alarmed when she was washing some pots and was nearly scalded by the temperature of the water coming out of the kitchen faucet. I also agreed it seemed extremely hot and was reminded of it this morning cleaning up from breakfast (grits and pancakes!). I remembered we had a team of experts to consult, so I summoned them and they both agreed the temperature of the water coming out was a little over 140 degrees!


That’s pretty serious heat! (That’s 60 Celsius to our Canadian readers) You can get a 2nd degree burn in 3 seconds or 3rd degree in as little as 5 seconds at that temp. So, we definitely have some investigating to do, seems to support our desire for a Rinnai Tankless hot water heater!
