Back when we were building our house, our architect told us not to use the regular blue PVC pipe inside the house, as it will not take hot water. We ended up using a type of plastic pipe (imported from Germany) that required a special heating tool to attach the fittings, and I think that I had to put down about 10,000 as a deposit, but I was able to get most of my money back. I can't remember exactly what the type of pipe was called, but I think it was similar to CPVC found in the US. (Looked similar to white schedule 40 PVC but the diameters were a little different.)

I assume that's what he's talking about. I could be wrong though.

What I've found is the point of use hot water heaters are the bomb...they don't cost that much and you can use them anywhere you need hot water. I have one hooked up the the shower in the master bath because I just don't do cold water showers. When I build my new house next year, I will put one in the Master bath, and one in the kitchen...maybe one in the kids bath, I debate that because most of the kids and guest just use cold water...the only exception is my year and a half year old son, he hates cold baths...must be that he's half American...LOL

The wife and I have been staying at a friend's condo in Makati. Nice, but dang tiny! It has the water heater for the shower, but not for the sinks or small washer.

It may be a small heater, but it is awesome!

I noticed that the D.I.Y. hardware stores sell several different units of direct heating for the shower or I guess anywhere, the prices ran 3,700 - 7000 peso's. The hand held or large shower unit with heater was 3,700 peso's, going to get one, actually I'd rather have tub to sit and relax in.

I will also be building a house in the near future. The idea I had in mind was to use a tank about 50 gallons or so, a bit longer and narrower version of a 45 gal drum of fuel. Mount that on the roof of the house and it should provide a source of warm if not hot water and the whole house could be plumbed that way.

I saw that traveling in the Caribbean, seems to be used extensively there. The water wasn't scalding hot but was warm. Also in the Citi Hardware they had a similar setup as I described but it has a type of solar panels, not really panels but a string of heat conducting tubing outside of the tank I described.

Has anybody experimented with a set up like that? I don't think I have a need for HOT water but a bit warmer than out of the tap would be nice.

Obviously added extra cost for the plumbing and faucets when building but that is the time to be considering doing it.
