I have a dishwasher and garbage disposal plugged into a 2-outlet wall receptacle under the sink. The GD is set up to a switch on the counter. Checking the fuse box, these both appear to be 20A. Kitchen was remodeled about 10 years ago.
I'm planning to install an Insinkerator Instant Hot water dispenser which draws 6.5A. With the DW drawing ~12A, seems like a simple issue to get an outlet adapter to allow for plugging in both the DW and instant hot. Max draw would be 18.5A. However, I can only find outlet adapters rated to 15A.
Question: Is it okay to have the DW (~12A) and IH (6.5A) plugged into an adapter rated 15A into an outlet rated 20A? Do I need to unplug the instant hot every time I run the dishwasher?
Thanks in advance for your input.
