Why is the water hot?
This is a very common occurrence in the summer months in the Desert Southwest. Water pipes acclimate (or adjust) to the temperature around them. As temperatures get higher in the summer, the water pipes absorb heat from the ground around them, and the temperature of the water in the pipes also increases. Heat also transfers to pipes located in walls and ceilings of homes and commercial structures. This exposure to additional constant high temperature further increases water temperatures at the tap. The water will never be "cold" in the summertime because of the consistently high temperatures in the summer months.

For cooler drinking water, fill a container and place it in the refrigerator for a short period of time. Utilizing a refrigerator with a water spout in the door is another way to serve cooler water year round.
