I have a HOT-1 water dispenser that is 5 years old and failed
when I removed it and inspected it I found that the copper tank had corroded
through in about 5 years
when I called insinkarator they told me that there was a 1 year warranty so
I should buy a new one
has anybosy else ween this I'd think a copper tank ( 3/4 Gal) would last a
lot longet than 5 years
Had the same happen ~5 years old - got a puddle on the kitchen floor
and initially blamed it on the dog (accident). found out the copper
tank was leaking (corroded), near the temp adjustment.
I went to an insinkerator supply site an purchased a new (plastic)
tank (~$100). Only problem was that you could taste the plastic tank
for several weeks - insinkerator told me to flush the tank several
times a day.....eventually the taste went away. Insinkerator doesn't
sell the "old" copper tanks any more. I guess they're susceptible to
leaking after 5 years.
