What is a boiling water tap?
An instant hot tap is one that is connected to a boiler tank that keeps water at almost boiling temperature under your kitchen sink. Once heated, the water is kept at around 98°C with around the same energy use as a light bulb. This saving huge amounts of energy and It works out as more energy efficient to do this rather than constantly heating a kettle. Boiling water taps are great for making Tea and Coffee quickly when entertaining, cleaning and preparing food.
How safe is the InSinkErator tap?
InSinkErator taps have varying levels of safety features depending on the model you choose. All have automatic shut off levers for the near boiling water like the InSinkErator GN1100C and the InSinkErator HC1100LC and some even have safety lock features on the boiling water lever like the InSinkErator 3N1 U and the InSinkErator 3N1 J. What ever tap you choose to go for they are all insulated to keep them cool to the touch for as long as possible.
How easy is it to install an InSinkErator tap?
Installing an InSinkErator tap is incredibly easy with the InSinkErator installation kit that we include with most tap listings on our website. The main things to consider when installing the tap is the tap hole / cut out size and the space required under your sink for the boiler and filter system. Some InSinkErator taps are intended to be secondary taps such as the InSinkErator GN1100c and the InSinkErator HC1100LC. These can be installed alongside your existing mains hot and cold tap. Whereas other 3N1 models like the InSinkErator 3N1 U and the InSinkErator 3N1 J are all in one taps that provide mains hot, mains cold and boiling water. This means you can have all three elements in just one tap.
How long do the InSinkErator filters last?
The InSinkErator filters should last around 6 months depending on how often you use your tap. There is a handy calendar chart on the F701R filter itself that you can mark to remind you when you last changed the filter. However if you find that your drinking water is not tasting quite the same and as fresh as it used to, you can changed the filter. We strongly recommend the use of the genuine InSinkErator filters as they are tried and tested to keep your tap system working correctly and will not invalidate your warranty.
