NORTH ANDOVER, MASS. — Watts Regulator Co. has released its “Danger — Scalding Lurks!” DVD. The program is hosted by CONTRACTOR plumbing columnist Dave Yates, owner of F.W. Behler Co., a contracting firm in York, Pa.
Every year, thousands of people in the United States suffer serious thermal shock or scalding injuries in their bathtubs, sinks and showers. The new DVD features detailed information on such topics as hot water stacking, how to protect individuals from scalding and thermal shock injuries, how to protect against the growth of Legionella bacteria in hot water systems and what new steps should be taken in the industry to eliminate these dangers.
The DVD takes the viewer through the proper selection and installation of point-of-supply and point-of-use temperature-control devices in hot water distribution systems. Addressing both residential and commercial hot water systems, the DVD provides background information about the competing concerns of tap water scalding and Legionella disease prevention — two areas of widespread attention in hot water system design and maintenance today.
