Anaheim AH-1300 Review

Features

Anaheim AH-1300 Instant Hot Water TankThis Anaheim hot water tank is capable of delivering 60 cups of water per hour. What makes it special is its power characterized by 1300 watts. This means that after the unit has been emptied, the water takes less time to get ready again than other similar instant hot water dispensers. Once the water is heated, it stays hot, thanks to the fact that the tank is made of insulated stainless steel. Due to the low-density operation of this tank, less built-up is accumulated. So the system is easier to maintain.

For your convenience, the unit has an automatic switch, which is controlled only by your fingertips. Thanks to it, you can adjust the temperature of the water. Perhaps it is useful to know that you can turn the tank off whenever you need it and set the temperature between low and high. You can do all these things using the switch. In addition to this, this tank has a self-resetting thermal fuse for heat protection.

Reportedly, the life expectancy of this system is more than five years. When the time comes to replace the tank, you can do it for a smaller amount of money than you gave for this system. This is possible because a replacement unit is not as expensive as the main product. If you want to enjoy the convenience of having this unit for a longer time, you are advised to change the rubber hoses with silicon ones as rubber hoses disintegrate after some years. In case you notice any leakage, don’t rush to replace the unit as the leak may be due to a loose nut on an inside pipe, and it may be repairable.

If you wish to have hot and purified water at the same time, then you can attach a filter to this device. Remember that this is a hot water tank only intended only for drinks. It is not a heater for showering. So it is not a good idea to connect this unit to a sink faucet and use it as a hot water supply.

Installation

To install this unit, you will need a dedicated water source, which means that plumbing is required. Unless you are experienced in plumbing, you’d better ask an expert to mount it. If you use this tank as a new installation without an existing separate hot water faucet, you will have to buy a faucet, and then make connections to the house water supply. However, if you use this tank as a replacement for a similar one, then the installation is simple.

If you need, you may hook this tank up a portable sink. For this purpose, you will need electricity and water supply and a special faucet and the necessary fittings. However, you cannot attach this tank to an outdoor hose because it needs power.
