    Our racehorses love the Insta hot machine! We go to numerous tracks that doesn't have got water and this makes it so nice to keep them clean year around. We have a friend who told us about this machine and we were very pleased. It is light and easy moveable.

                • Q:

                  My husband gave me the Insta-Hot unit for Christmas and I was thrilled. Although I didn't need to wash horses, I did have nasty blankets so lined them up on the panel fencing to wash with hot water during the unusually mild weather last week. The connections leak a lot but the water warms up 35 degrees on the highest heat/lowest water level. The main problem is that the heater shuts off every 50 to 60 seconds and I had to turn the water off and then on every time. What is the problem? My husband tightened all connections as much as he dared and was not able to eliminate leaks.

                    If you are using a gun type sprayer it will go on and off. Which makes the system turn on and off. You will need to get a spray that continuously sprays. If you have any more questions please contact customer service at 800-365-1311

                  Q:

                  I keep the temp on the lowest setting and the water on the highest setting. Hot water will sometimes surge through and i constantly feel i have to keep my hand on my horse wherever the water sprays to make sure he doesn't get a blast of hot water. Is there a solution?

                    2 issues could be at fault here,
                    1) it could be a buildup of calcium and mineral deposit within the heaters pipes themselves. (simple fix – is to back flush the unit with vinegar or to descale the unit to remove all the buildup)
                    2) it could be an issue with her water pressure not being steady and fluctuating causing the water to get hotter for short periods.
                    - The issue is not that it is a setting on the heater, it is simply that there is buildup within the heating pipes that is causing the water to slow down at times and create those hot flashes or that the issue lies in her water line and not producing a steady flow or pressure.

                    I also keep it at medium heat, and test it regularly. I have not had any trouble with keeping a steady temp. But I did have trouble with the flame going out on the propane on windy days.

                    I have find if I use the continuous flow nozzle it comes with, I have no problem. But if I use my trigger nozzle, every time I release the handle the water and heater turns off. When I squeeze the nozzle all comes back on and there is a blast of hot water.

                    I've never had that problem.  I keep water at highest and gas at the middle setting   I've had it give me a blast of cold water once in awhile.  If there is wind it will fluctuate.  Love this machine   I also use a different nozzle then came with it.  It's
                    an adjustable spray.  Hope this helps.

                  In a climate that doesn't go below freezing, does this unit still need to be drained? I only need it for the winter months, so I'd like to know the requirements for draining to prevent damage others have mentioned.

                    We suggest to all ways drain the unit. If you know it is going to get below freezing drain and use pressured air to put through the unit to make sure you got all the water out of the coils.

                    With the power max you would want this one if you are planing on using it in the colder months and if your well water is colder. This one will heat the water up warmer if you have those two things.

                    The water needs to be running for it to ignite. I had this problem as well and it took us forever to figure it out. Once you turn the switch on just open the hose nozzle and you should hear it ignite. You can turn it off while washing and it will reignite when you turn the water back on.

                  I bought one of these about 3 years ago, and have always drained it and stored it in my barn ( can get below freezing). this year, tried to use it, and it was leaking Everywhere!! opened it up and there were multiple failure sites in the piping. I'm pretty sure I drained it the last time I used it. has this been happening to others? could there be a pressure problem from my water source? thanks !

                    A:

                    Usually a split in the coils means that there was water left in the coils. When the water freezes it expanded and split the coils. The coils splitting from freezing damage is not covered under the warranty. Rapid fix which we suggest to fix the coils. You can purchase it at any local hardware store and it will fix the split coils.If you have any other questions please fee free to contact customer service at service@sstack.com.
