1Clean the spout.
Periodically use warm water and a small amount of dish soap to clean the spout. Avoid using harsh cleaning solutions, as spouts are often made of chrome-covered plastic and therefore are vulnerable to damage.
2Every few years, drain the water tank, if you have hard water.
Over time, if you have hard water, minerals and sediment may accumulate inside of the tank. If left alone, your hot water dispenser will have to work harder to heat the water. If your dispenser’s tank has a drain plug, drain the tank once or twice per year to remove buildup and keep your dispenser working properly.
3Use great care when dispensing water from the spout.
At 190 degrees F (87 degrees C), this water is much hotter than standard hot tap water. Unlike your home’s hot water which can take up to a full minute to reach its peak temperature, the water from this dispenser is hot immediately.
