Learn how to get the hottest temperature water out of your HOTTAP.
Why doesn't my HOTTAP reach 50°C (122°F)
Your HOTTAP can heat incoming water by up to 35°C (63°F), up to a max. temp. of 50°C (122°F).
This means that in winter (or with a cold water supply) your HOTTAP may only reach 35-45°C (95-113°F).
With the Water Dial on LOW and Gas Dial on HIGH, and:
- With 0°C (32°F) water coming into your HOTTAP, you will have ~35°C (95°F) coming out.
- With 10°C (50°F) water coming into your HOTTAP, you will have ~45°C (113°F) coming out.
Your HOTTAP is a portable water heater and will not reach the same water flow or temperature as a domestic water heater (e.g., your home shower).
To get the highest temperature increase
To heat up your water by 35°C (63°F):
- Adjust the Water Dial to LOW.
- Adjust the Gad Dial to HIGH.
If you want hotter water coming out of your HOTTAP, or you want to have hot water at a higher flow, you can re-circulate your water.
Note that you will need a pump to re-circulate your water.
- Fill a container with water.
- Place your pump's input hose into the container.
- Connect the pump's outlet hose into the HOTTAP.
- Place the HOTTAP shower head into the container.
- Run the HOTTAP until you reach your desired temperature.
- Remove the HOTTAP shower hose from the container and use as normal.
To make sure your HOTTAP is efficiently heating water, perform these troubleshooting steps:
- Disconnect your gas hose from your HOTTAP and look inside the Gas Inlet valve (on the HOTTAP). Remove any gunk (or bugs) that might be blocking the flow of gas.
