I love the new hot water dispenser except for the fact that it starts to spew hot water on it’s own without warning. It’s a real safey issue. Any suggestions on how to correcct this problem??

Try lowering the temperature knob. If the problem persist please call customer service 1-888-856-6322.

Hello, I just replaced my existing instant hot/filtered water system with the ready hot unit. My last system required a filter. I see that this one does not but since I already have one , can you please recommend a type of filter for this particular unit.
Thank you,

Hello Hope,
Your Ready Hot System is filter ready! There is a pre-filter that can be installed on the incoming lines to the Ready Hot tank that is not supplied with the unit but is available for purchase on our online store ( If you have an existing filtration unit that you would like to use please contact our customer service department at and we will be able to help you further.

Thank you.

We just installed the RH-200. We were wondering if it is possible to replace the tube from the heater to the faucet with copper tubing. Do you support the connectors or have a kit that would allow this modification?

Thank you,

Hello Karen,

We do not recommend replacing the silicon tubing with copper. Doing so may void your warranty. However, if you would like to contact us directly at, we may be able to help you determine options and explain the issues with copper in more detail.

Thank you!

Thank you for your quick response. I’ve done a little more research on silicon tubing and am satisfied it is a good current solution.

Appreciate this open question system!

I’m interested in one of the hot cold water units such as the one shown here.

Are there replacements parts ( valve cartridges) for the faucet? Chicago has higher than average calcium in water and tends to need service after a couple years.


written by joneca On 24 June 2015 Reply

We do not sell replacement parts for faucets because the design is intricate and not easily reassembled. We would suggest looking into whole home water softeners to help with calcium buildup. If you are interested in one of our Ready Hot units and have additional questions please write us at

Thank you!

I am interested in your product. However, we would like to hook it up to a third party faucet. Is there an adaptor that you make so we don’t have to use the faucet that comes with your system.


written by joneca On 24 June 2015 Reply

If the third party faucet is an “Open Vent” faucet it is technically compatible. However, we can not guarantee that your faucet includes all the necessary tubing, etc. Feel free to email us at if you need more information.

Thank you!

Are your faucet compatible with RO filtered water? (e.g. does the water touch any metal?)


written by joneca On 24 June 2015 Reply

Hello Charissa,

Our faucet the (RH-F560-BN) is an open vent faucet and designed to be installed with a hot water dispenser. If you have also installed a RO system, then yes, the faucet is compatible. If you wish to install the RH-F560-BN with a RO system only, then the faucet is not designed for this application. We confirm all of our metal faucets are lead compliant and will be in contact with water.

Thank you!

Please email us or call us if you have more questions.

I got the faucet and the hot water tank. How do you connect the white tube to your water line? Any specific connection I need to buy, other than a splitter?


written by joneca On 2 July 2015 Reply

Hello Eugene,

The white tube can be connected to the water line with a “compression fitting” or “quick connector”. Compression fittings vary in size (ie. 1/4″ X 1/4″, 3/8″X 1/4″) depending on your water supply line, but are available at a local hardware store.

Feel free to contact us directly if you should have further questions.

Thank you.

I have 2 of these tanks in my food truck and love them! One has just started leaking from the handle (single handle) where it connects to the faucet. I have tried tightening it and that helped with the spraying that it was doing, but it is still dripping badly. This is only happening to one of my taps and I have been using it with no problems for a year. How can I fix this?

We cannot get the white tubing onto the supply inlet on the tank. The tube is too small to fit over the inlet. Every thing else went quickly and easily. We tried warming the tube with a hair dryer and warm water, but the tube will not expand enough to fit overy the inlet.Model#RH-200-SS.

Thank you for your reply.

Dear Jo Ann,

We regret hearing of the issue you have experienced.

Please refer to page 6 in your users manual. There is a 1/4″ Quick connect included in the Faucet package. The Quick connect – connects the inlet tube to white tube.

It says to mount the tank 10mm away from the wall. How do I do this? Do I need to use metal spacers or is the spacing already built into the tank?

written by joneca On 9 May 2016 Reply

Dear David,

We confirm the installation of this unit does not require the tank to be mounted as it can be sat on the base of your cabinet. In the case that you wish to mount your tank, we ask that you allow 4-6 inches of air space around the entire unit for air circulation.

Thank you.

Hi, I have a waste king quick and hot tank. I was looking on amazon for a hot/cold faucet and I like one of yours. Are your faucets compatible with the waste king tanks?

Hi… I’m installing new quartz counter tops which have arrived and are being installed. We have order your H20 Ready Hot through Costco and it is being delivered.

Hi, I just received my Ready Hot water dispenser and I wanted to know am I suppose to unscrew the nut on the faucet end and put the 1/4 tube on the pointy end and screw the nut back on? I did this and I just wanted to make sure that’s the correct way to install it. I know where everything else go, but I wanted to make sure I was doing that part of the faucet end correctly.

written by joneca On 14 March 2018 Reply

We confirm your understanding of the installation on the faucet is correct. Thank you for your recent purchase of the Ready Hot Instant Hot water Dispenser.

written by Charrisa On 17 March 2018 Reply

Thanks for responding….one more thing, if the Ready Hot Water tank fails (no longer works) can you still use the cold water side of the faucet?

written by joneca On 19 March 2018 Reply

In the case that an issue arise with your ready hot tank, the cold lever will still continue produce water from the incoming water source as this line does not travel into the hot water tank.

Can you explain why model # RH-100-560 with 780W heating makes the same amount and temperature as the # RH-200-560 using 1300W?

190°F / 60 cups / hour

written by joneca On 7 June 2018 Reply

Dear Chuck,

The RH-100 adjusts to 190°, the RH-200 to 200°, and the RH-300-SS to 208°.
If you are asking why there is not a “dramatic” change in temperature range, our technical team may be able to offer you some help by writing to or calling by 1-888-856-6322.

Thank you.

Hello, do I have to use the connector/reducer adapter? Or can I just slide the slicone hose on ther center connection and clamps it down?

written by joneca On 9 November 2018 Reply

Due to the high heat passing through this connection, we ask that you use the adapter. Connecting the silicone tube directly into the tank can affect its performance over time.
Thank you.

Does 41-RH-200-F560-BN use microwave to heat the water or regular heating coils ?
