According to the Hygienic safety requirements of the hot water supply system (Sanitary and Epidemiological Rules and Regulations SanPiN 2.1.4.2496-09 plus SanPiN 2.1.4.1074-01 added) in 2009, the temperature regime for hot water is established at the places of its intake regardless should be within not less than 60 ° С, but not more than 75 ° С. There are small assumptions: during the daytime, changes can be within no more than three degrees, and at night (specifically from twelve at night and up to 5 hours inclusive) - no more than 5. If the water from your tap does not approach these indicators then it is necessary to recalculate the charge for the hot water provided. If the water in the faucet is less than 40 degrees, then it is paid in this case, as cold.The recalculation procedure for not very high-quality services is determined by Appendix No. 1 to the existing "Rules for the provision of public utilities for citizens", it was approved by the relevant Decree of the Russian Government of May 6, 2011 No. 354. You need to contact the organization where the tenant pays money etc.).
