hot water on the left, Why?

    Hot on Left

    When water was first used in the home, it was by the use of a hand pump mounted on the sink. It was usually mounted on the right side of the sink because most people are right handed and it is easier to use the pump with your strong hand. Since the pump was on the right side of the sink, the best place to put the hot water faucet was on the left side.
    Thats the way I've heard it anyway.
