The cold water must flow from the outlet below 20°C, and the hot water above 50°C. A cylinder should be set to 60°C (temperature gauge should be fitted for reading) and a combi-boiler/ electric heater is to operate at 50-60°C. Please inform the landlord/letting agent if you believe the temperatures are not reaching the above or if they are defective in any way. Do not adjust the hot water system; request a visit from your landlord/letting agent.
Please be aware that temperatures above 44°C are within scalding range. The hot water system control measures in place for this property are set within scalding range. Take extra care when using the hot water system by ensuring you blend the hot water with the cold water to reduce the water temperature.
