LeaksIn sinkerator products seem to lacking in longevity. They work fine until they break which doesent seem to long. Ive gone thru several instahot units over the years with leaky faucets and tanks that wear out and leak. Cant they get this right? there isnt alot of choices so seems you have to buy what you know what wont last. Plus leaks can be very costly and destroy cabinetry.

DISSAPOINTEDGreat product, very convenient especially for instant tea, hot chocolate etc.
But, hugely dissapointed with manufacturing / design quality. We are on our third tank in 4 years. Seems tanks last about 2 years and then start leaking. I wish company would address this problem. Replacement tanks are quite expensive!

knoxville disappointedOur unit lasted 3yr and 7 months. Why on earth would you make the lower drain fitting out of plastic and let is sit next to the S/S tank. It dried out and cracked. Putting a SS screw into the plastic fitting might have made the product look good but it also caused the fitting to dry out and crack.. this unit has a built in design flaw and failure rate....dont waste your money..

Worked well for nearly 4 yearsWorked great for nearly 4 years; unfortunately, the warranty is only for 3 years. The tank under the sink is now leaking and will have to be replaced. Unfortunate.

Quick ReplacementOur original heater for our hot water faucet on our sink lasted beyond its warranty period. When it started leaking we panicked for having to heat water in the microwave or on the stovetop.
Fortunately I found the replacement on your website, confirmed through your website and through the manufacturer that it was the right replacement.
It arrived by UPS on time and installed it myself in just a few minutes.
We have a happy kitchen again!

Happy with productThis is our second InSinkErater and we couldn't live without one now that we have had one for the past five years. We were disappointed that the first one only lasted 4 1/2 years.
The service with FaucetDirect was great. They took care of our need right away and kept us updated on the shipping and delivery process. Thank you FaucetDirect for the awesome customer service.
If I purchase this unit does it come with proper lines to hook up to the instant dispenser?
A. The dispenser when ordered will have the lines need for a complete installation.
Can I get the tank without the filter unit?
A. The InSinkErator SST-FLTR is sold with filter unit and not separately.
Please provide dimentions vertical width depth & capacity
A. The InSinkErator SST-FLTR is 6 1/8"w X 11"h, and the capacity is 2/3 gallons. It dispenses 60 cups of 200 degree F water per hour.
I see the question was asked already, but I would like clarification. If we already purchased SST-FLTR but the tank has developed a leak and is out of warranty, why can't we just purchase the tank without the filter kit? That is a unnecessary expense (between $60 to $100).
A. Insinkerator does not make these tanks available separately without the filter kits. These are the higher quality higher capacity tanks, not the smaller ones that come packaged without filter with the lower end dispenser faucets.
Can this filter work with the Hot-1 faucet?
A. The InSinkErator SST-FLTR is not compatible with the HOT-1.
How much energy is used when idle as when we're away from home for the weekend and temp is at 200 degrees? At 150 degrees?
A. The InSinkErator SST-FLTR uses 6.25 amps max, and it varies on your climate and room temperature for how often it must kick on. You can also disable it if you go away.
