Want to use hot water on Shabbos?

Well now you CAN!(perhaps). This new waterheater claims to have been approved by poskim.
The waterheater has a shabbos mode that lowers the tempertaure so that it would not be considered Yad Soledes Bo(lit. hot enough o cause one’s
hand to recoil) and keeps it at that temperature (110 degress) and when you turn the water on the heat does not come on. The water heat is maintained independently by a thermostat so as to avoid the issue of Pisik Raisha(a CERTAIN outcome). This should be an interesting new addition to the Kosher Lamp and the like ( although much more expensive)...Good Shabbos!

(HT to Chaim)
