  1. Hi Folks
    I know this query sounds a bit daft but with regards to the instant hot water tap I realise its plumbed into the cold water supply so I assume it serves as a cold as well as a hot hot water tap !, looks like a good idea for a kitchen sink.

    Thanks
    George

  2. Not a silly question at all George. It does serve as both a hot and cold water tap. Pull it to the right and you get cold water. Pull it to the left and you will see a light come on which indicators it is using electricity and heating the water.
    Any further questions fire ahead!

    Cheers,
    Colm

  3. I’m very interested in your Instant Hot Water system and gather that it works on the same principle as the electric shower and that the water is sourced from water tank in attic (not even sure if that is the case?). Is there any system where I could have a tank under my kitchen sink which is fed from unused water from the cold tap (e.g. when running cold tap in the morning before filling kettle or after flow of hot water and filling the kettle afterwards or rinsing vegetables etc – none of this water is Grey Water) and which I could recycle to be used by my Instant Hot Water Tap? This would have the effect of double savings – on both electricity and water!
    Very much looking forward to hearing from you.

    Annie

    1. Hi Annie, Thank you for getting in touch. The Instant Electric Hot Water Tap just uses cold water from your mains. It is not to be connected to the hot water supply. There is no need for a tank under the sink as there is an element in the tap itself which heats the water. In fact it has shown to be alot more efficient than undersink water heaters as with the tap you are only heating exactly what you need. Another product however which might interest you is The Greywater Recycling Kit

  4. Can you make a cup of tea with the hot water.
    What hot does the water get ie temperature.
    What’s the average life span of the element.
    What’s the average life span of the tap.
    Is it possible & easy to fit a replacement parts.
    What’s the average price to get it installed,I have a spare socket under the sink.

    1. Can you make a cup of tea with the hot water?
      The water coming from the tap will only come out at 60-65 degrees celcius. You would need the water at 85-100 degrees to make tea. It will however quicken the boiling process if used in conjunction with a kettle.
      What hot does the water get ie temperature.
      As above 60–65 degrees
      What’s the average life span of the element
      It will depend on whether or not you live in a hard water area and if you are in a hard water area and doing nothing to treat the water it will impact negatively on the lifespan of the element. The product does come with a 1 year manufacturers guarantee however.
      What’s the average life span of the tap?
      As this product isn’t around for 10 years it is hard to give you an accurate figure. All I can say is that I use one personally every day and it was installed over 3 and a half years ago. It has never given any trouble.
      Is it possible & easy to fit a replacement parts
      Yes it is possible to fit replacement parts and any qualified tradesman would probably consider the process very straight forward. Phone support is also available if required.
      What’s the average price to get it installed,I have a spare socket under the sink.
      We don’t get involved in this but generally a qualified technican seems to charge about 80 Euro to install.
