(9) Deleted.”;
(37.0.3)  by striking out note A-2.2.6.7.(3);”;
(37.1)  by replacing note A-2.2.10.7. by the following:
A-2.2.10.7. Water Temperature Control. Hot water produced by a service water heater must be at a minimum temperature of 60 °C to prevent the development of potentially fatal bacteria. At that temperature, water causes second degree burns to the skin in 1 to 5 seconds. Consequently, Article 2.2.10.7. provides for the installation and adjustment of valves, mixing valves and limiting devices to provide a water outlet temperature that is lower than the temperature produced by a service water heater. Compliance with that Article reduces the risk of scalding in showers and bathtubs, where severe burns occur, and reduces the risk of thermal shock that may occur in the shower and lead to falls.
Children, the elderly and persons with disabilities are particularly at risk of scald burns because they are not always able to remove themselves quickly from a situation that could lead to burns. At 49 °C, the time for a scald burn to occur on a healthy adult is nearly 10 minutes, whereas the time for a skin burn to occur on an elderly is 2 minutes, because the elderly’s skin is thinner and less vascularized. For those persons, a temperature of 43 °C provides a more adapted protection against burns because they can only occur after a number of hours of exposure.
In private seniors’ residences and care occupancies, Article 2.2.10.7. provides that the valves, mixing valves and limiting devices must be adjusted to provide a maximum water outlet temperature at 43 °C. The installation of pressure-balanced valves is also prohibited, because those valves are sensitive to seasonal changes of the cold water temperature and require some settings per year in order not to exceed the prescribed temperature.
The water outlet temperature at other fixtures, such as lavatories, sinks, laundry trays or bidets, is not addressed by Article 2.2.10.7., but a scald risk may exist at such fixtures nonetheless.”

A-2.4.2.1.(5) Soil-or-Waste Pipe Connections.
A-2.4.2.1.(6) and (7) Suds pressure zones. High sudsing detergents used in clothes washers produce suds that tend to disrupt the venting action of venting systems and can also spread through the lower portions of multi-storey drainage systems. The more turbulence, the greater the suds. One solution that avoids the creation of suds pressure zones involves connecting the suds-producing stack downstream of all other stacks and increasing the size of the horizontal building drain to achieve a greater flow of air and water. Using streamlined fittings, such as wyes, tends to reduce suds formation. Check valves or backwater valves in fixture outlet pipes have also been used to correct problem installations.

(37.1)  by replacing note A-2.2.10.7. by the following:
A-2.2.10.7. Water Temperature Control. Hot water produced by a service water heater must be at a minimum temperature of 60 °C to prevent the development of potentially fatal bacteria. At that temperature, water causes second degree burns to the skin in 1 to 5 seconds. Consequently, Article 2.2.10.7. provides for the installation and adjustment of valves, mixing valves and limiting devices to provide a water outlet temperature that is lower than the temperature produced by a service water heater. Compliance with that Article reduces the risk of scalding in showers and bathtubs, where severe burns occur, and reduces the risk of thermal shock that may occur in the shower and lead to falls.
Children, the elderly and persons with disabilities are particularly at risk of scald burns because they are not always able to remove themselves quickly from a situation that could lead to burns. At 49 °C, the time for a scald burn to occur on a healthy adult is nearly 10 minutes, whereas the time for a skin burn to occur on an elderly is 2 minutes, because the elderly’s skin is thinner and less vascularized. For those persons, a temperature of 43 °C provides a more adapted protection against burns because they can only occur after a number of hours of exposure.
In private seniors’ residences and care occupancies, Article 2.2.10.7. provides that the valves, mixing valves and limiting devices must be adjusted to provide a maximum water outlet temperature at 43 °C. The installation of pressure-balanced valves is also prohibited, because those valves are sensitive to seasonal changes of the cold water temperature and require some settings per year in order not to exceed the prescribed temperature.
The water outlet temperature at other fixtures, such as lavatories, sinks, laundry trays or bidets, is not addressed by Article 2.2.10.7., but a scald risk may exist at such fixtures nonetheless.”

Water in a service water heater or a distribution system at a temperature not more than 60 °C permits Legionella bacteria to survive and thrive. Water heated at a temperature equal to or greater than 60 °C reduces bacterial contamination of the hot water distribution system. To do so, the thermostat must be set at different temperatures depending on the type of service water heater.”.

Water in a service water heater or a distribution system at a temperature not more than 60 °C permits Legionella bacteria to survive and thrive. Water heated at a temperature equal to or greater than 60 °C reduces bacterial contamination of the hot water distribution system. To do so, the thermostat must be set at different temperatures depending on the type of service water heater.”.
