My hot water is clocking in at 157 degrees fahrenheit, or hotter than the center of a well done steak (measured with a digital thermometer, documented for posterity with a video).
I've found information
on the minimum (appears to be 120 / 110 if there's an anti-scald valve), but not on the maximum. And this ruling
appears to say that landlords have a responsibility to maintain a safe temperature, but I can't find any documentation on what that is.
Am i being a baby? Additionally, the temperature fluctuates between 110 and 155 so there's no way to take a shower, knowing which end of the spectrum you're on, without getting burned to bits.
I guess I should be happy I don't have the alternative, a cold shower every day.
I'm in Greenpoint, Brooklyn (Kings County), if that helps.
I should mention I asked the super (once in person, once in text so there's a record) if the boiler can be adjusted. She claims it has been, but I am currently ice-ing my back from my attempt to shower this evening.
