Hot Water deadlegs

I have friend in a new retirement village with central hot water. It takes an inordinate time to run hot suggesting excessive dead legs runs.
Where can I find the regulations re this as the NCC Vol 3 is not definitive.
Currently there is a lot of wasted water and electricity

Hi there,

We are in the design stage of building our house and want to install the hot water service in the laundry inside a cupboard. Is this allowed in Victoria Australia?

No hot water from facets, cold water ok from facets

We have had below freezing temps for the last 4 nights. Today all cold water facets have running water, but all hot water facets have nothing coming out.

Can I install a hot water system under my house?

What are the rules in Brisbane around the location of a typical gas hot water cylinder. I need to move mine and I was wondering can I put it under the house (Queenslander on piles)?
