ASSE Releases Free Anti-Scalding Brochure and Water Temperature Indicator
The American Society of Sanitary Engineering (ASSE), an ANSI organizational member and accredited standards developer, has announced the release of a new brochure and hot water gauge free of charge as part of an effort to reduce the threat posed by scalding water in baths and showers. The brochure provides parents and other concerned individuals with information about the risks posed by scalding bathwater and tips for addressing likely hazards, as well as information about the threat posed by legionella pnuemphillia bacteria, which can thrive in domestic hot water systems. The hot water indicator – which features the image of “Tommy Temperature,” a cartoon turtle – includes a liquid crystal display (LCD) that, when dipped in bathwater or the spray of a shower, reads either “HOT,” indicating potential scalding, or “OK,” indicating a safe temperature.

To request the free brochure and temperature gauge, call 440-835-3040 or email
