Hot water is used for washing and cooking. The temperature required is about 45oC. Water is usually generated at a higher temperature (55oC to 65oC) in a vessel and mixed with cold water at mixing taps or mixing valves.
The following course is for the design of hot and cold water systems. It contains all the design requirements according to codes and standards besides calculations examples.
