Potential problems of an Under Sink Hot Water System
While there are many benefits to having instant hot water, it is important to understand and learn the potential problems involved with these types of heating systems. One of the major concerns of instant boiling water is the potential safety hazard.
Having hot water right at your fingertips is not always suitable for all lifestyles especially if you live in a household with children or elderly persons.
In these two age groups, there is heightened risk of accidents caused by lack of awareness and inability to comprehend the risks of such a device. With the average under sink hot water system reaching between 90-120 degrees Celsius, there is the risk of severe burns if caution is not taken around this appliance.
If you are worried about these risks, the water temperature of these devices can easily be turned down to a safer, more suitable temperature. The popularity of instant hot water systems have grown in the past few years, and with this growth has come the invention of inbuilt safety locks.
One of the most popular brands that has an inbuilt safety lock is ZIP hot water systems , as they also have a large range of systems to specifically suit your household depending on the needs and occupants. The Zip hydrotap continues to be a popular option for those who live with children, as it has a unique childproof safety lock which requires a two finger operation system to prevent accidental boiling water dispersion.
