Set Calgary Water Heaters to Safe Temperatures for Pregnant Women
This does not mean, however, that pregnant women in Calgary have no other choice but to brave freezing waters when taking a shower or bath. They can take warm (not hot) baths, which even offer several benefits, including decreasing the swelling of the arms and legs, and increasing the essential amniotic fluid in the womb. However, it is important to get the temperature of the water just right. As Ms. Motorwala says, the ideal temperature should be at around 45 degrees Celsius or 102 degrees Fahrenheit. To ensure this is strictly observed, water heaters in Calgary homes where pregnant women reside should be working optimally at all times. This includes an accurate and fully-functioning thermostat that effectively controls the water’s temperature.
