Synopsis As Introduced
Creates the Water Heater Safety Valve Act. Provides that a manufacturer or supplier of a hot water heater for use in a residential home or facility must supply or attach a temperature mixing valve or other safety valve to the hot water heater or tank that prevents water with a temperature above 130 degrees Fahrenheit from coming from any faucet or other source of water into direct contact with a person. Amends the Illinois Plumbing License Law to provide that a person engaged in plumbing who installs a hot water heater for use in a residential home or facility must supply or attach a temperature mixing valve or other safety valve to the hot water heater or tank that prevents water with a temperature above 130 degrees Fahrenheit from coming from any bathtub faucet, shower faucet, sink faucet, or any other source of water into direct contact with a person.

House Committee Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause with the provisions of the introduced bill with the following changes. Replaces "hot water heater or tank" with "water heater or tank". Provides that a manufacturer or supplier of a water heater or tank for use in a residence or residential facility located in Illinois (rather than a residential home or facility) must supply or attach a temperature mixing valve or other safety valve that prevents water with a temperature above 120 degrees Fahrenheit (rather than 130 degrees Fahrenheit) from coming into direct contact with a person. Provides that the Department of Public Health shall administer and enforce the provisions of the Act. Provides that any person or entity who violates the Act's provisions shall be liable for a civil penalty of $500 for the first violation and $1,000 for each subsequent violation.
