Customer Question
My dispensor "spits" hot...

My dispensor "spits" hot water. I've checked the lines and there are no lose connections. I've also ran the water and drained the tank and also turned down the temperature. Nothing has helped.

Contractor's Assistant: How long has this been going on? And how severe is the problem?

It's been going on for about 3 months and it does it all the time. It throws hot water on me, so I have to be really careful.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

I have someone that can do it if it isn't too hard. Otherwise, I'll have to hire a plumber.

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

There have been no leaks. Guess that's good. That's all. It's still heating well.
