I’ve installed a filtered boiling hot and cold Insinkerator tap in our new kitchen. This was a good deal from the Ideal Home Show in March. It dispenses up to 2.5 litres of water at 98 degrees C at a time as well as filtered cold water, so we’ve done away with the old kettle.
I’m going to work out the cost of running it, so I’ve stuck an energy meter on it. So far, under ‘normal’ use with four people, it’s approximately 1KW per day (15.3p).
Here’s the filter (left) and hot tank (right), showing the simple plumbing involved.
