Adjusting the Water Temperature

Select the appropriate water temperature for the user

The temperature can be changed by turning the temperature dial anti clockwise to increase the temperature and clockwise to decrease the temperature. The temperature ranges from 22C through to 48C (dependent on the KW of the unit). Each water dispense is 170ml or 270ml of continuous water at your selected temperature. Once you have set your required temperature your Mobile Sink Unit will need to be used 3 times to get to the desired temperature.

Actual water temperature may differ slightly from the declared temperature

The temperature depends of water hardness, water inlet temperature, room temperature and fluctuations in the main electricity supply

Cleaning the pump filter

Simply removing any extraneous matter from the filter, wiping with a damp lint free cloth

Water Containers

Your Odyssey Mobile Sink has been designed to operate with a suitable water container. Damage resulting from the use of containers other than a suitable Mobile Sink container are not covered by the warranty. When inserted correctly there is a gap between the two water containers.

Reusable HDPE plastic, recycle and replace bottles in accordance with your hygiene requirements
Do not use with any other liquid other than water and either vinegar for limescale removal or (Milton) for sterilising tablets / liquid. Hot water is not suitable for making beverages. However, all pipe work and water containers supplied are food grade.

Water-soluble cleansing agent used in the water container or within the bowl may produce bubbles/ suds causing the wastewater container to overflow. Any overflow should be cleaned with a damp cloth and drying the case and sensors with a paper towel to remove the residual water and bubbles.

NOTE impurities in the water can damage the pump. For protection use the water filter provided. Replacement filters can be purchased from the mobile sink company

PLEASE NOTE Do not overfill your water containers, leave enough water to position the freshwater pipe work.

NOTE overuse of cleaning agents may cause an overflow

Descaling

In hard water areas limescale may build up.
We would recommend using white vinegar at a ratio of 25% vinegar to 75% water

Problems that can indicate descaling is required:

  • Leaking
  • Reduced water flow
  • Water flow stops completely
  • The machine fails to heat up properly
  • Unusual noises

It is recommended that you descale your mobile sink unit regularly – how often will depend on how hard your water is and how regularly you use your mobile sink unit.

To begin place 2500ml of white vinegar and 7500ml of water into your freshwater container.

Press the button 3 times to begin the descaling process

Time for 15 minutes you will not be able to use your Mobile Sink Unit in this time period.

After the descaling is completed flush through with water by pressing the button

This must be a competent person to complete this process, it must not be completed by a child.

Cleaning

Your Odyssey Mobile Sink Unit should be cleaned regularly, and dirt and deposits removed. Failure to maintain the mobile sink in a clean condition can affect the life of your mobile sink and possibly result in a hazardous situation. Cleaning your mobile sink unit will help to prevent a build-up of stubborn marks that can be difficult to clean.

Like all stainless-steel appliances, you will need to clean your Odyssey Mobile Sink Unit. We suggest when not in use your water containers are emptied, ideally at the end of each day and your mobile sink unit is wiped over with general soap-based detergent (washing up liquid / antibacterial spray) with a soft microfibre cloth. Alternatively if your sink has not been cleaned you can clean going forward with a stainless-steel cleaner to remove oxidized stains or rust.

Although called stainless steel a more accurate name would be harder to stain steel, steel does rust, stainless steel has a chromium oxide layer.

Although this layer is only a few molecules thick it covers the surface of the stainless steel which is what gives it the ability to resist stains and rust.  This layer can get damaged or removed by physical abrasion (brushing, grinding, scraping or by chemical reaction) It can be weakened due to expansion and contraction caused by heating and cooling i.e. humidity.

With a little cleaning and care the chromium oxide layer is self-healing. Do not use cleaning sprays that contain the following, chlorides, such as iodine, bromine, chlorine, fluorine) or cleaning sprays or liquids that contain alcohol, ammonia or mineral spirits. Also do not use steel wool or steel brushes as particles can adhere to the stainless steel and rust.

1. Unplug the mobile sink unit from the mains before cleaning. It is important that the tap and the motion sensor is always keep clean. Wipe it with a mild detergent and water and leave to dry.

2. To clean the outer case and inside housing where the water containers sit use a soft damp cloth to wipe off any splashes or a paper towel to mop up any spills. Wipe off any dirt with a damp cloth and a little detergent. Dry thoroughly. If needed use stainless-steel cleaner to remove oxidized stains although this may take a little effort to clean.

3. Clean the door of the mobile sink unit to make sure it can close properly

4. Be careful not to spill water into the power connections at the back of the unit.

5. Use warm soapy water to clean the outside do not use any abrasive pads or powders that could scratch the control panel.

6. Unplug the mobile sink unit before cleaning and wipe the power lead with a damp cloth and leave it to dry before plugging it back in

Once completed you then need to dispose of the water from both your fresh and wastewater containers and then sterilise your fresh and wastewater container and pipework by adding 2 sterilising tablets (Milton) to the containers and leave for 15 minutes. Disposing of both the fresh and wastewater once the process is completed

Cleaning the Containers and Pipes

This operation must be completed once per week. More frequent cleaning and sanitization may be appropriate in situations where the risk is considered high.
