Frequently Asked Questions
How do three-in-one taps actually work?
Three-in-one taps offer filtered instant boiling, chilled, and sparkling water all from one tap. The tap is separate from your main kitchen mixer tap and is installed either over your sink to the side or on a bench top as a stand-alone kitchen appliance.
Under the sink, your mains cold water line is connected to the appliance, and the water is fed through an internal water filter and through the chiller or boiler, giving you the instant filtered water of your choice. Whether boiling, chilled or sparkling water. The chiller also has a feature that when sparkling water is required, CO2 is injected into the water giving you instant sparkling water on tap.
Which are the best brands for instant boiling, chilled, and sparkling water taps?
Both Billi and Zip offer the best in technology and design. Instant boiling, chilled, and sparkling water taps are complex appliances with electronic components that have taken years to perfect. Both are Australian made, watermarked to Australian standards and there’s a reason they are highly sought after from around the world and now both export globally.
I’m looking for an instant boiling, chilled, and sparkling tap for my home. Where do I start looking?
Zip and Billi have a range of products suitable for homes or small offices. The Billi Eco Sparkling is great value and comes in a clean line dual levered tap with many colour options available.
Zip has recently introduced their design range of taps, adding to their traditional Classic style tap, they now offer the Arc, Cube, and Elite tap styles. Also available in many colour options and have an optional stylish circular drain font kit for on-bench installations.
Do I have to install my instant boiling, chilled, and sparkling tap over my sink or can it be installed separately?
Both Zip and Billi have an on-bench drain font kit and tap riser for on-bench installations. The tap needs to sit higher in order to get a jug underneath it as it won’t have the under space that a sink mount would have.
Billi has a rectangular shaped drain font kit and Zip have a stylish circular one. Ensure you also consider the height of your tap and purchase a tap riser along with it.
What’s the main difference between the Zip and Billi 3-in-1 instant boiling, chilled, and sparkling taps? How can I choose between the two?
Quite often it comes down to the style of tap you prefer when choosing the right brand for you. Both Zip and Billi are exceptional brands and equally come highly recommended. To assist you, this article Zip Vs. Billi may give you further insights of their differences and help you choose the right brand for you.
How much do 3-in-1 boiling, chilled, and sparkling taps cost? What can I expect to pay?
The Billi Eco Sparkling starts at around $4,700 in polished chrome and you can expect to pay around $5,095 for the Zip residential designer range including the Elite in polished chrome. Additional cost to this may include colour upgrades ranging between $200 and $600, on-bench drain font kits ranging from $200 to $500, and installation costs of $350 to $450 or as quoted from your preferred plumber or installation technician.

What tap designs and colours are available in the Zip Hydrotap boiling, chilled, and sparkling taps?
The Classic design is available in polished or brushed chrome and gloss or matte black. The Arc, Cube and Elite also include those colour options as well as gold or brushed gold, rose gold, platinum, gunmetal, nickel or brushed nickel.
What tap designs and colours are available in the Billi instant boiling, chilled, and sparkling taps?
Billi has one style of tap, their dual levered tap dispenser which has clean, stylish lines. It also has other tap function options, including a touch dispenser. Their range of colour offerings includes polished and brushed chrome, gloss or matte black, rose gold, gunmetal grey, gold, gloss or matte white, platinum, lime green, red, grape and French blue.
Can the boiling, chilled, sparkling taps swivel or are they fixed?
No, both the Zip and Billi brand of instant boiling, chilled, and sparkling taps are fixed in position and do not swivel.
Can I take this tap with me and install it in my new house if I move? How can I cover up the hole left behind in my sink or benchtop?
Yes. We understand that you may form an attachment to your new appliance and it’s as easy as pulling out the system, installing it into your new home and filling the hole left behind.
You could either cover the hole with a chrome plated disk which looks like a button on your sink, or install a standard water filter system with a separate tap such as the Aquakleen Ezi Twist Twin so there is still a kitchen feature, just not your treasured boiling, chilled, and sparkling tap.
I’m worried about people burning themselves on the instant boiling water. Is there a safety setting?
Yes. All of the Billi and Zip boiling taps have a boiling safety feature which requires you to press two features on the tap at once to dispense boiling water. This makes it difficult for young children or the elderly to accidentally burn themselves. This can be enabled or disabled at any time.
Can I adjust the level of sparkling water my filter tap dispenses?
Yes. All sparkling models have a simple adjustable sparkling feature so you can increase or decrease the amount of CO2 in your sparkling water to your desired consistency.
What manufacturer’s warranty comes with the 3-in-1 instant filter taps?
Zip offers a three-year warranty with a five-year warranty on the tank. Billi offers a two-year warranty with warranty extensions available.
What is the average life span of one of these filter taps? How long can I expect it to last?
Much like a car, over time various parts do wear out and require maintenance and repair. On average, you should expect a good eight years or more from your appliance before you need to consider a replacement. Remember, these are highly technical, electronic kitchen appliances with many moving parts. Once they age past eight years old, you may find the costs of repair outweigh the benefits of replacing it with a new one. After that time there is sure to be more advanced models offered on the market as well.
In the event of a break down, do you offer a service to come out and repair my instant boiling, chilled, and sparkling filter tap?
Yes. Our network of service technicians is Australia wide. They can change your filter, CO2 bottle or service your tap in the event of a break down.
Do you offer installation and service Australia wide?
Yes. Our network of installation technicians covers all major cities in Australia, not just in Melbourne where our head office is located. If you are in a remote area, we can deliver your system and your local plumber can do the installation.
Can you deliver my filter tap to me directly so my plumber can install it?
Yes. We deliver to every postcode in Australia.
How much electricity do the instant filter taps use?
Zip and the Billi systems are designed with energy efficiency in mind. They both offer power saving modes to conserve energy when not in use. Some even have a timer you can preset so they turn off when you know you won't use them.
What do the Billi and Zip taps water filters remove? Will all of the water from my tap be filtered?
Both the Zip and Billi filter taps come with a sub-micron water filter which reduces chlorine, cysts, heavy metals, sediment, rust, and bad tastes and odour. All the water from your boiling, chilled, and sparkling tap will be filtered.
If you want additional fluoride reduction, you can install our Aquakleen Twin Fluoride as a pre-filter system to any Zip or Billi tap.
What size CO2 bottle comes with the instant boiling, chilled, and sparkling taps? How much sparkling water will my CO2 bottle give me before it runs out?
Both Zip and Billi residential boiling, chilled, and sparkling taps come with a 1 kilogram CO2 bottle and Zip commercial sparkling systems come with a 2.6 kilogram refillable CO2 bottle. You can also upgrade your system to a larger CO2 bottle size if you need a lot of sparkling.
As a rough guide, 1 kilogram CO2 bottle should give you around 166 litres of sparkling water, a 2.6 kilogram bottle will produce 433 litres, and 6 kilogram bottle will give you 1,000 litres.
What are the ongoing costs for replacement filters and CO2 bottles?
Depending on usage and water quality, you should change your filters every 6 to 12 months and these cost from $156 to $245 depending on the model. Replacement 1 kilogram CO2 canisters come in twin packs for both Zip and Billi systems, and cost around $175. Replacement filters and CO2 bottles can be purchased through our online store.
Is it easy for me to change my replacement water filter and CO2 canister myself or do I need to have a technician do it for me?
You can choose to change your filters and CO2 bottles yourself or you can have a technician do it for you, whichever you prefer. Make sure you follow the manufacturer’s guidelines when changing them over to ensure they are replaced in line with their recommendations.
Does sparkling water have to be chilled or can I have a sparkling water tap in room temperature?
The sparkling water needs to be chilled to be most effective. Neither Zip or Billi boiling, chilled, and sparkling taps have an option for room temperature sparkling water.
