Keeping You Safe in Your Home: Hot water cylinders and immersion heaters

Bacteria can grow in water cylinders and tanks, but setting your thermostat to 60°C will kill almost all harmful bacteria, including those that cause legionnaires’ disease. If this is too hot, just mix with cold water before using it.

If you or a member of your household has sensory loss, using water at 60°C could cause scalding, so please contact us.
