A hot water sink dispenser is fast becoming one of the most popular kitchen appliances today on account of its convenience and other merits. This kitchen/home appliance was considered a luxury at one time, but is now regarded as a necessity. This comes as no surprise considering the ease and convenience it offers the consumer. Handy availability of instant hot water at the mere touch of a button or flick of a switch, far outweigh the small faults and problems that may arise in time.
A hot water sink dispenser provides you with near boiling water of 200F which is perfect for preparing beverages and food. One can make coffee, tea, noodles, pasta, oatmeal, baby formula, hot chocolate, soups and sauces etc very quickly. This appliance is a boon especially if you have little children or toddlers at home. The hot water dispenser dispenses around 16 oz of water faster than your microwave.
Safety information for the installation of hot water sink dispensers are usually provided with the unit. Read and understand the instructions of installation before you attempt to install the unit. Turn of the main water supply before you start and straighten out the copper tubing of the unit. Make sure that the seal of the dispenser faucet is properly placed over the sink mounting hole. The mounting plate should be placed on the threaded stud under the sink. Next the hex nut should be tightened so that the faucet cannot rotate. It is necessary to have an assistant who can hold the assembly head above the sink while you make sure the washer is in place beneath the sink while tightening the whole assembly.
You would then have to screw down the water dispenser head with the mounting gasket on the mounting hole. Align the mounting washer and the mounting screw head under the sink. Tighten the screw to make sure that the mounting washer is secure. It is important to see that the hot water sink dispenser tank is mounted vertically and perfectly level in a place where the plumbing and electrical connections can be easily made. It is not good to extend the electrical and plumbing lines. There should not be any kinking or stretching of the tube. It is also necessary to see that it should be mounted so as to ensure easy replacement of the filter cartridge whenever needed.
While replacing your filter cartridge, 1 or 2 ounces of water will automatically discharge. You can redirect this water in a downward direction through a 6″ tubing to capture it in a pan or towel.
