    Where is this coming from? Proposed changes to IPC or UPC?

    110°F is the perfect temperature for Legionella to propagate.

      Here in Queensland Australia we have to use a tempering valve set at 49 degrees C in the hot water line,the laundry and kitchen are exempt from this
      by-law so we usually fit the valve in the vanity cupboard of the bathroom so the water basically cannot scald children,although there are a lot of plumbers who just "temper" the whole house for simplicity and cost saving

          I guess the only way to safely make Floridas new rule work would be to keep the WH @ 140 then add a tempering valve at each fixture?

          I see this as another case of the "Obama will save you" government mentality...

          I'm gonna bet that the numbers of scalds does not support a rule like this.

            Keep it simple. Cold showers work for Me! Hot water is a luxury.
