We recently acquired a solar hot water service and found that from then on our water temperature is to be regulated to 50C max.
This means it is 40-44C at the tap- hopelessly ineffective for cleaning.
This nanny-state rule has been imposed on us secretively and will apply to everyone.
If your HWS is OK do not be conned into going solar.
All you will get is a hole in your bank account and be sentenced to lukewarm water for ever.
