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 people are more likely to be
permanently injured by hot water than others. These include
the elderly, children, the infirm, or physically/mentally
handicapped. If anyone using hot 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 precautions. In addition to
using the lowest possible temperature setting that satisfies
your hot water needs, a means such 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 manufacturers
instructions for installation of the valves. Before changing
the factory setting on the thermostat, read the “Temperature
Regulation” section in this manual.
