Hooking a water hose to a water heater


I don't have hot water in my shop and would like to. Where I work, we have an Aristol four gallon electric water heater underneath the sink. It works great! I'm going to purchase the six gallon model for my personal use. This will just be for washing hands/face and perhaps occasionally for washing a car or steam cleaning carpets.

What I would like to do is have a water hose faucet somehow attached to the hot side of the water heater but also have it running up to my sink at the same time.

So is there a faucet or something I can connect to the hot water outlet of the water heater that has a water garden hose faucet as well as a male fitting to attach my hot water line to the sink?

Perhaps something like this....?

Or this.....?

By the way, this is the water heater that I want to get.

Thanks!

Just put a T in between the water heater & sink hookup with a separate shutoff in case of servicing, then a run the line to where you want and end if with a hose bib.

Not sure why you would not just buy a laundry sink, the faucets for them have a garden hose connector right on them.
Lowes and HD have far less expencive one then this one.

I like this idea. It sounds simple enough and I like the idea of having a hose bib (had to look up what that was, by the way. lol) that I could mount on the outside of the vanity for easy garden hose hook-up.

A friend has that exact sink and faucet in his garage. It's pretty sharp! However, I've already got a $100 dual stainless steel sink(s) and a $100 curved faucet with a sprayer attachment thing. If I were starting from scratch or completely re-doing what I got, I would certainly strongly consider your suggestion as it is way less complicated and less bulky than what I currently have. But it's simply not in the plans (aka the budget) for right now to tackle anything more than just a mini water heater with a water hose provision.


Thanks!
