Experts agree that thorough hand-washing and hygiene are the best ways to protect against COVID-19. With more homeowners sheltering in place, there’s been a growing interest in how to keep the home clear of the virus. A recent article by Cleveland Clinic found that COVID-19 can live on surfaces, such as cardboard, for up to 24 hours and plastic and stainless steel for up to 3 days. These new findings have prompted homeowners to wash their hands as soon as possible after returning home, and to clean their groceries and delivery boxes before bringing them into the house.
“Having a remote sink in your garage certainly comes in handy at times like these,” said Jens Bolleyer, EcoSmart vice president and general manager. “It’s the perfect place to wash your hands and halt the spread of germs before you enter your home. ECO MINI is a miniature tank water heater, which can be installed directly under the sink, to provide warm water for comfortable handwashing.”
The newly designed ECO MINI Collection features 1.5, 2.5, 4 and 6 gallon models, all equipped with a cord and 15 amp plug for use in a 120 volt outlet and an external temperature control knob.
ECO MINI provides immediate hot water in small quantities, making it the perfect point-of-use heater for remote sinks in the garage, outdoor kitchen, studio or guest house. ECO MINI is also used to deliver hot water to showers and sinks in recreational vehicles, as a booster for fast hot water to a shower that is far away from the main water heater and even as a home pet-washing station.
ECO MINI can be installed anywhere water and an electrical outlet are present.
