I heard from he ADA today. I promised you I would tell you the results.

The ADA told me to see my doctor. Then they asked me for money.

They did give one bit of advice. They tolld me to get a food monitor.

A food monitor? Like, someone who watches your food for you? I have one of those, I call it a dog.

Once again, an example of the excellent service that your contributions to ADA can provide.

The temperature for diabetics for food is to be no higher that 102 degrees. I learned these facts from the diabetic thermometer that I got. It had all of the instructions with it.

I hope these facts will help all of us. I no longer have problems with my hands or my throat.

I got my faucet and showerhead. They are both named LED.

They come in different colors. The LED lights instantly and automaticaly.

When the water temperature is below 31 degrees C, I get the color Green.

When the water temperature is 32 degrees C-43 degrees C I get the Blue color.

When the water temperature is above 51 degrees C, I get the Red color.

So, the Blue color is the normal color for diabetics.

I love it, and it has bright beautiful colors.

Now, I will not burn myself.

fiesta - I'm glad you found what you needed.

This is an informative thread that I'm sure will be of help to others who have similar problems as you do.

you.
Pray tell, which government instituted this requirement? I just installed a new water heater not two months ago - there is no governor on it - there is a thermostat which I can adjust to any setting I require, but there is not a governor. The sink right beside the water heater has hot water as soon as I turn it on. The kitchen (on the other side of the house) requires a few minutes to receive hot water - that's a function of the length of pipe the water must travel through and has nothing to do with a governor.

If you are not comfortable waiting for a minute or two to get your hot water, all you must do is wrap insulation around your hot water delivery pipes.

My hot water heater DOES have a delay. My bathroom sink is 12 inches from the heater, and the kitchen sink about 15 inches. There is what seems like an unreasonable long delay in the hot water coming out of the tap. I once asked a plumber about this and he told me about the delay device that was a regulation.

I can't speak for your new hot water heater, but this has been the norm for many years and in many apartments and houses I've lived in.

The delay of the hot water has nothing to do with the thermostat.
