Abstract (en)

[origin: WO2006102486A2] A hot water dispensing system includes a water tank having a heat source for heating water in the tank. The tank has a cold water inlet and a hot water outlet, and an expansion chamber is connected to the water tank. A faucet is connected to the hot water outlet of the tank. The faucet has an actuator for selectively dispensing hot water from the faucet as desired by a user. An aspirator is situated between the expansion chamber and the water tank, with an inlet coupled to the cold water inlet, an outlet communicating with the water tank and a vent opening in fluid communication with the expansion chamber. A flow control device is in fluid communication with the cold water inlet. The flow control device may be received in a pocket defined in the aspirator.
