Plumbing Faucets (Please Drive On The Right Side Of The Road)

Please drive on the right side of the road (left side if your country has the steering wheel on the right side of the vehicle).

Although your home inspector should have checked during your home inspection, when you move into your new home, be sure to double check all of the plumbing faucets to be certain that the cold water faucet is on the right side and that the hot water faucet is on the left side, that’s the standard convention that people are used to. Imagine a guest in your shower who adjusts the cold water faucet to cool down a very hot shower only to come to the unhappy conclusion that they have actually made a hot shower scalding hot; an unpleasant and potentially hazardous surprise.

Remember, always drive on the “right” side of the road, that’s the “cool” thing to do.
