And the cost would be prohibitive IMO. I sure wouldn't want to have to press a button to get hot water in addition to turning a faucet. Love the KISS principal for everything.

Understandable it was just a thought that popped into my head. It would be a pain.

You can also buy a faucet that has 2 valves under the sink to mix hot and cold how you want it, then up above is just one knob.

That's what we have on our kitchen sink and I find I burn myself more with that one than anywhere else. It doesn't help that it's 100% opposite hot/vs/cold in the direction that you push/pull the temperature selector than our kitchen faucet at home.

With the bathroom sinks, daughter does turn the cold on and then add hot to it. The kitchen is a bit more obtuse.

Either way, I'm definitely going to look at playing with the winterization valves to adjust the heat down slightly. Bringing it more inline with my home water heater.

You can just switch the hot & cold water lines underneath the sink and correct that. Doesn't even take a wrench.

And sometimes the answer is painfully obvious. Thanks- hadn't thought about that. I'll climb under there next trip.

Mine is so hot on electric that the outside pressure relief valves leaks. Thats how I noticed it. Switch to propane and it is fine.

That seems abnormal and something that should be looked at. I think there is a temperature gauge that shuts off the heating element. It sounds like there are separate ones for electric vs. propane. Could it be that your electric one is malfunctioning?
