ΘFor your satisfaction and safety, read all instructions, cautions, warnings and dangers before installing or using this instant hot water dispenser.

ΘThis particular unit is not intended for commercial use.

ΘMake sure that all electrical wiring and connections conform to local codes.

ΘA standard 120-voltgrounded electrical outlet is required under the sink for the dispenser’s electrical power.

ΘThe wall outlet powering your dispenser must have power supplied to it continuously.

ΘThis outlet must be fused and should not be controlled by the same wall switch that operates the disposer, unless you have a SinkTop Switchfrom InSinkErator®.

ΘIt is recommended that a dedicated control valve be installed on the cold water line supplying water to this system.

ΘIf you suspect elevated levels of chlorine in your water, it is recommended to use our water filtration system.

ΘThe use of a water filter should NOT result in the water pressure to drop below 30 psi (207kPa). If it does, this will prevent your unit from operating properly.

ΘMoving parts inside the tank causing a rattling noise is normal.

The InSinkErator® Instant Hot Water Dispenser Filtration System is intended for use in filtering sediment, chlorine taste and odor from drinking water, and has not been evaluated for other uses. The system is typically installed (near or beneath a sink) where filtered drinking water is desired, and must be installed, operated and maintained as specified in the installation and use instructions.

To reduce the risk associated with property damage due to water leakage:

• Protect filter from freezing. Drain filter when temperatures drop below 40°F (4.4°C).

Do not install if water pressure exceeds 120 psi (828 kPa). If your water pressure exceeds 120 psi, you must install a pressure limiting valve. Contact a plumbing professional if you are uncertain how to check your water pressure.

Do not install where water hammer conditions may occur. If water hammer conditions exist you must install a water hammer arrester. Contact a plumbing professional if you are uncertain how to check for this condition.

Do not install on hot water supply lines. The maximum operating water temperature of this filter system is 100°F (38°C).

The disposable filter cartridge must be replaced every twelve months or at the specified service cycle.

Read and follow instructions before installation and use of this system.

To reduce the risk associated with ingestion of contaminates due to use with water that is microbiologically unsafe or of unknown quality, do not use with water that is microbiologically unsafe or of unknown quality without adequate disinfection before or after the system.
