Enhanced convenience, healthier drinking habits and cost savings are just some of the benefits of instant filtered, boiling, chilled and sparkling water systems.

In modern households, convenience and efficiency are paramount. One innovation that perfectly encapsulates these values is the instant filtered boiling, chilled and sparkling water system. These systems offer a plethora of benefits that cater to today’s busy lifestyle. 

We spoke to Zip Water’s ANZ Managing Director Mike Abbott to hear more about the benefits of these systems and how they’re revolutionising the way we access and consume water at home. 

Enhanced daily convenience

The convenience of having instant access to boiling, chilled, and sparkling filtered water cannot be overstated. Whether you need boiling water for a quick cup of tea, chilled or sparkling water to refresh yourself on a hot day, or filtered water for cooking, these systems streamline your daily routines. Abbott highlights that this convenience is a major drawcard for homeowners, as it eliminates the need for separate appliances like kettles, water coolers, and filtration pitchers. “With everything integrated into one sleek unit, your kitchen workspace is decluttered, making daily tasks more efficient and enjoyable.” 

Promoting hydration & healthier drinking habits

Access to high-quality filtered water encourages healthier drinking habits among household members. “Many people do not drink enough water simply because it is not readily accessible or they are concerned about the quality of tap water,” says Abbott.

Zip Water uses Zip MicroPurity 0.2-micron filter with triple action technology in their HydroTaps. This filter is certified to reduce the six most common contaminants found in drinking water: lead, microplastics, cysts (such as Cryptosporidium and Giardia), chlorine (taste and odour), sediment, and bacteria, to foster healthier drinking habits. Abbott emphasises that the ease of access and the assurance of water quality can lead to increased water consumption, thereby promoting hydration and overall well-being.

Unlike other heating systems, Zip's PowerPulse delivers a precise amount of energy to the heating element to ensure it does not over or under shoot the target boiling water temperature, thereby conserving energy.

Energy efficiency & cost savings

Zip Water’s HydroTap range features patented Zip PowerPulse* technology which is the most efficient way of heating and maintaining a set boiling water temperature. Unlike other heating systems, PowerPulse delivers a precise amount of energy to the heating element to ensure it does not over or under shoot the target boiling water temperature. Once the set boiling temperature is reached, it then manages energy using small pulses to ensure the target temperature is precisely maintained.

Over time, installing an instant water system can lead to significant cost savings. “While the initial investment may seem substantial, the long-term savings on energy bills and the reduced need for bottled water quickly offset the cost.” Traditional water heating and cooling methods are not only less efficient but may also be more costly in the long run. Furthermore, by eliminating the need to purchase bottled water, homeowners can save a considerable amount of money annually. 

Environmental benefits

One of the most compelling reasons to install an instant filtered boiling, chilled, and sparkling water system is its positive environmental impact. By reducing the reliance on single-use plastic bottles, these systems help decrease plastic waste, which is a significant environmental concern. This shift not only conserves resources but also reduces the carbon footprint associated with the production and disposal of single-use plastic bottles.

The Zip HydroTap is available in seven modern finishes, allowing homeowners to choose an options that complements their decor.

Aesthetic & modern appeal

In addition to their practical benefits, these water systems also contribute to the aesthetics and modernity of a kitchen or household space. They are designed to be sleek, stylish, and compact, seamlessly integrating with contemporary kitchen designs. Abbott says the Zip HydroTap is available in seven modern finishes, allowing homeowners to choose options that complement their decor. Whether pursuing fittings in brushed chrome, matte black, or trending brushed rose gold, brushed gold or gunmetal, there's a finish to suit your project design. “This not only enhances the visual appeal of the kitchen but also adds a touch of sophistication and modernity.”

Customisation & personalisation

Another advantage of these systems is their customisation options. Users can create their preferred settings with a few touches using the optimised new menu in the HydroTap G5 command centre. Select energy modes such as timers and sleep mode actions and usage settings for easier customisation. This flexibility ensures that every household can enjoy the benefits of an instant filtered boiling, chilled and sparkling water  system tailored to their unique needs.

Maintenance considerations

Regular filter replacements and servicing are necessary to ensure optimal performance and water quality of these drinking water filtration systems. Zip Water have a highly skilled network of service technicians who are qualified water system experts. They are trained to professionally service and maintain all Zip Water products. Abbott advises regular servicing, including using authentic Zip filters not only prolongs the lifespan of the system but also ensures consistent water quality and efficiency.
