Instant hot with Cold filtered water

p.ball2August 2, 2012

I have searched for old posts and only find ones that discuss instant hot. I was wondering if anyone has a hot and cold dispenser with the filtered water feature.

We are redoing our kitchen and am forgoing the filtered water and ice on the door dispenser. We will have an icemaker but since I do not want to have to buy water bottles I am looking into the filtered water dispensers. I figure why not get hot and cold if they offer it and it is a good system.

Hoping for some reviews by someone who has one

I did a system with an Instant Hot (IH) and Reverse Osmosis (RO) into a single faucet. The RO also feeds the freezer for the ice maker. The water is not chilled, but at room temperature. It's only a minor inconvenience, because in order to have cold water you have to either use ice or store a pitcher in the fridge. I had originally considered a water chiller too, but after doing a little research, I found that not many recommend chilled and hot into the same faucet. I think one of the few systems available was from Everpure or something like that. But it was expensive.

My system is set up to flow like this:
Cold Pipe->RO->Faucet Cold Line->IH->Faucet Hot Line

The faucet is vented and has a third line out so it feeds the IH, instead of the RO feeding the IH.

After living with my system for almost a year now, I don't have any real complaints. I've only run out of IH and RO water once. That was the first time I entertained during the holidays. I got cute and made tea with the IH while also making coffee with the RO. This was also after serving drinking water from the RO throughout the party. RO takes a few hours to replenish and the IH shouldn't be run on empty. So I had to shut off the IH. Since then, whenever I entertain, I just use a kettle to boil water for tea. Then the IH to top-off or for other cooking needs.

I got my IH and RO from Costco and the faucet is a Tomlinson that it designed for RO and IH.
