Bronchiestatis and albuterol

Want to ask a question. I think I read somewhere since researching MAC that it could be killed with a temperature of water to 130 degrees. Did I read this at one point on this forum? Have you ever heard this? When people were talking about a new shower head we just adjusted our hot water to 130….hope this helps.

@gej53 The higher water temperature setting inhibits the growth of MAC. We had ours raised for that reason. Just be careful that you don’t burn yourself! irene5

We set our temp to 135F. Before I shower, I turn the spigot all the way up and run hot water through the shower to flush out the pipes while I leave the room to get undressed. (Exhaust fan running full blast.) I don't think there is MAC in our water because we have pink slime mold (methylobacter) and the two don't usually coexist, but just an extra precaution. The I adjust before stepping in.
