Whether you are juggling a baby or toddler or struggling with the on-set of arthritis simple household tasks can become more difficult to carry out.  Installing an Alexandria 4-in-1 Instant Hot Water Tap not only makes the preparation of hot drinks and cooking easier all round it also offers safety with several inbuilt features including:

 IHWT Time delay function

Time delay function

The Alexandria 4-in-1 Instant Hot Water Tap features a touch-sensitive button, which you touch and hold when you require instant hot water. When holding this button, the LED turns red and then, after a few seconds, hot filtered water dispenses from the tap. The time-delay before the instant hot water is dispensed is to prevent accidental scalds, no water will flow until the red LED is fully illuminated. 

 IHWT in Situ

Cool touch spout

The inclusion of a cool touch spout means that heat from the water is not transferred externally to the tap’s spout, meaning it will never be too hot to touch - ideal for when you’re doing the washing up!

 Scald Prevention

In addition to the touch-delay function, our tap features smooth pour. It does not spit hot water like some hot taps preventing accidental scalds.

Tank set temperature

7 pre-set temperatures

Users can choose from 7 pre-set temperatures for all cooking and cleaning needs between 75-98°C. The illuminated LCD display on the boiler tank clearly displays the water temperature.
