All about hot water dispensers

Hot water dispensers are one of the most convenient and handy appliances in the kitchen today. In the beginning they were thought to be a luxury, but as people have realized the ease and convenience they brought into their lives they consider them a necessity. The hot water dispenser makes life easier because of the availability of hot water whenever you want it.

Hot water dispensers come in many styles and designs that range from classic ones to the modern. The classic designs sometimes look like they are from the bygone era but their fabulous performance that is in keeping with the high tech standards make up for it. Most of the hot water dispensers deliver hot water (200F) for purposes like making soup, instant coffee, tea, sauces etc. Designer finishes like nickel, chrome, satin, French etc make them look attractive and gives your kitchen a real boost. If you need instant hot water then all you got to do is to have a hot water dispenser in the kitchen.

Hot water dispenser handles are of many types like easy twist, easy grip, single/dual lever etc. Special filtration systems can be installed that reduces odor and chlorine giving the water a refreshing clean taste for all your drinks, beverages and recipes. The Ultra System in hot water dispensers has a faucet that automatically blends cold water from the water supply with the hot water from the tank to provide you with instant warm water at 110F which is ideal for shaving, hand washing and other general cleaning activities. Compact hot water dispensers are a perfect choice for those who need instant hot water at one particular location. Compact water heaters/dispensers need only an usual standard electrical outlet at the usage point. The water that is dispensed is always hot therefore reducing water waste.

It is important to first understand the installation and safety instructions before attempting to install the instant hot water dispenser. Before starting you have to cut off the water supply. Straighten out the copper tubing. According to the model you have chosen, mount the dispenser faucet. Make sure that the seal is properly placed on the valve body and that it covers the mounting hole in the sink. Also ensure that nuts are tightened well so that the faucet does not rotate. It is wise to have a helper who can help you while you fix the washers under the sink and tighten screws, align the metal washer over the mounting screw etc.

The hot water dispensers have a hot water tank that have to be mounted vertically and level in an area where electrical and plumbing connections can be easily made. The filter bracket and head assembly should be made without kinking or stretching the tube. Remember that the filter should not be mounted over the electrical outlet. Once the whole unit is installed turn on the water supply without switching on the electricity. Turn the hot water faucet on and fill the tank. Cold water will fill the tank and run out of the faucet. Flush out the system thoroughly and make sure the connections are all watertight. Then turn on the electricity and wait for 15 minutes for the water to get hot. A little water dripping is normal at this first heating cycle.
