FAQs for water
The ideal temperature for domestic hot water is 120 degrees Fahrenheit, or 49 degrees Celsius, to avoid the possibility of scalding.
Furthermore, if the water heater is set at too high a temperature, it can result in unnecessarily more expensive energy bills from the running water emerging from shower systems and taps.
There are three key tips you can follow to make your hot water last longer in relation to your shower systems.
Firstly, you should flush your water heater tank on an annual basis. Nearly every water heater manufacturer would recommend flushing their tanks once a year.
You should also check the anode rod for corrosion, and seek a replacement if it has rusted badly.
Finally, you can insulate your hot water heater tank to make your hot water last longer.
Typically, the flushing of the toilet accounts for the majority of household water use. It is responsible for almost 30 per cent of indoor water consumption in an average home.
PSI stands for pounds per square inch in relation to water pressure, indicating the force at which water enters your household from the mains water system.
Typically, homeowners prefer their household water pressure to be within the 40 and 60 PSI range, though safe water pressure gauges can vary between 30 and 80 PSI.
Typically, normal water pressure sits at somewhere between 40 and 60 pounds per square inch (PSI). The majority of homeowners like their water pressure to sit somewhere in the middle, at about 50 PSI.
When measuring the water pressure in your household, you can choose to alter it to a setting that suits everyone in the home and all typical household usage.
