I'd open the drain penis until it flows hot, fill a styrofoam cup with water (or nested plastic cups for the eco-friendly), and measure the temperature of the water in the cup.

The easy way is just to measure the temperature of the water in your kitchen, but that introduces all kinds of unknowns, like how much heat is lost in the pipes.

Edit: the forum censored out "draincock". Now it gets what it deserves.
