Not Canada, Australia has the spec

Read this page, it describes EXACTLY what happened to me at 4 years of
age, why hot water heaters have this spec and why tempering valves can
be a valuable addition to homes with either very your children or the
elderly.

Irrelevant to what is being discussed, whether water
MUST be heated to over 140F to kill bacteria. That
clearly isnt necessary if the water is chlorinated town
supply and the water isnt stored on site before use.

We dont bother to heat the cold water to over
140F before using it in the kitchen, for a reason.

I thought that was because of the peculiarity of bacteria in the wooden
dams that hold the water supply for the area around Sydney, NSW.

Certainly not a worldwide norm.

No such animal.


Precisely the same type of dams are used around Sydney
as are use virtually everywhere else in the first world.

I am remembering my visit incorrectly, then.
My host, in Mossman, pointed out the risk of the DWH temperature, and
commented on the wood that was a part of his water supply, reaching up and
picking a sliver out of the nozzle in the shower.

What explanation is there for this heat requirement, which doesn't exist in
most other parts of the first world?
