Well I found a new hot water record at yesterdays inspection - a whopping 187 degrees. Whats your high temp record?
Sheesh! That’s definitely a scald hazard!
It probably was even hotter than that. When I take IR photos of water coming from a kitchen faucet, the hottest point is about 2 or 3 inches below the spout. Probably something to do with emissivity. Of course, your mileage may vary.
