So first of all, when you bought a portable sink with the possibility of a hot water supply, you need to assemble it. The algorithm for assembling each sink may differ, so make sure you read the instructions.

In most cases, you need to assemble the lower part of the sink, and the iron stands with the drainage system. You will need a screwdriver and screws usually come in the assembly kit. When it comes to the sink itself, probably you will need to assemble the tap – attach the leverage, and so on.

After you are finished with the assembly of all the parts and you are ready to use the sink.

Step 1. Installation

Before you actually use your hot water sink make sure it stands somewhere nearby the socket – you will need to switch it to the electricity source for it to work.

F.A.Q. about the portable sinks with hot water

1. What should I do if my portable sink doesn’t have the feature of hot water originally?

Well, you can boil the water in the kettle and add it to the water storage in proportion to 30/70 hot water/cold water. But this will only give you a hot water supply for a limited amount of time. In other cases, you should buy another sink.

2. How do I clean my portable sink with hot water?

You just take a sponge and a detergent, and start cleaning an empty sink! However, pay special attention to the heater in the boiling section. It can get rusty over time, and you should spray protective chemicals at least once a year on it. We don’t recommend using the sink with hot water as the drinking water source.

We would recommend contacting the manufacturer directly and addressing all the problems. Of course, if the warranty is still applicable.
