Is hot water line on left or right?

When dual-temperature faucets appeared, the cold water stayed on the right while hot water occupied the left. The Uniform Plumbing Code now requires that faucets “shall be connected to the water distribution system so that hot water corresponds to the left side of the fittings.” It’s a rare victory for lefties.

Likewise, people ask, is the hot water on the right or left?

So, when hot water was introduced, the logical conclusion about where to put this new tap was simply on the opposite side of the cold water tap – the left! So, the common sense answer is that the hot tap is on the left because people are mostly right handed and the cold tap is used the most often.

Beside above, which way is hot on a single handle faucet? On traditional faucets, the knob to the right of the spout controls cold water, while the knob to the left controls hot water. With a singlehandle faucet, both hot and cold water are controlled by the same handle. Shifting the handle to the right controls cold water, and shifting it to the left controls hot water.
