The problem with not using hot water is trying to get someone to stay in the shower for a minimum of 15 minutes. As we all know, our natural reaction to having cold is to pull away. Judging from the calls we get from plumbers, the mixing valves are fairly common. ANSI Z358.1-2004 recommends a lower temperature limit of 60 degrees F to avoid hypothermia. - Diane Amell, MNOSHA This e-mail and any attachments are confidential and may be privileged.
