Frequently Asked Questions
Which are your most popular instant boiling and chilled taps for homes?
Most homes need a tap with style, sophistication, and practicality. Our most popular under sink boiling and chilled systems for homes include:
They are all designed for residential use, offering both sink mounted and stand-alone bench mounted options. With a vast array of colour choices, you will not be disappointed in any of these models.
I need a new instant boiling and chilled filter tap for my workplace. What are the most popular models?
The most important consideration when choosing an instant boiling and chilled tap for the workplace is capacity. If you choose a system that does not meet the demand of usage, it will be over worked and possibly fraught with expensive repair issues down the track.
We have a large range of varied sizes available, our most popular are economical and practical, including:
Consult with us first to ensure the right size system is considered for your workplace needs.
With your office water cooler range, how hot is the hot tap? Is it hot enough to make tea and coffee?
If you want the hottest water available in a plumbed in water cooler, the best option is the Bibo Boiling & Chilled countertop system, which dispenses hot water at 96 degrees C.
What do your instant boiling and chilled taps filter out?
This depends on the type of filter used, and there are many options. Most instant boiling and chilled taps have a filter micron rating of 10 or 5 microns and will remove dirt, sediment, bad taste, odour, and chlorine. Most of our Zip and Billi taps come standard with a sub-micron filter that also removes cysts and heavy metals.
If the system is for your workplace, a sub-micron filter probably isn't the best option. The high usage can cause the filters to block up too quickly, resulting in costly and frequent filter changes.
Ask us if you require additional filtration as we do have solutions to ensure your system will filter all that you require and won’t cost you too much with ongoing filter replacement cartridges.
Is it possible to remove fluoride with your instant boiling and chilled taps?
Yes. We can install any filter configuration to all of our under sink boiling and chilled taps and mains connected office water coolers. If you need additional fluoride removal, we recommend our Aquakleen Triple Fluoride water filter system which can easily be connected to any of our boiling and chilled taps.
What are their main differences between Zip and Billi? How do I choose one over the other?
This is a very common question with no easy direct answer. Both brands are exceptional, with some obvious differences between the two. Please refer to our article Zip Vs. Billi for more detailed information.
Do the instant boiling water systems require plumbing in from the mains hot water line?
No. All of our under sink instant boiling and chilled water taps are simply connected to your mains cold water line. You don't need a hot water supply as they have an internal heating function that heats or boils the water within the system.
I'm worried about people accidentally scalding themselves with an instant boiling water tap. What’s the best solution?
Zip and Billi boiling and chilled water taps both come with an integrated 'boiling safety mode' which can be turned on and off. When turned on, you will need to activate both the safety switch and the boiling leaver at the same time to dispense boiling water.
As our Hydromix brand is not electronic, we can install a specialty boiler safety switch that can be used at the same time as the tap leaver. It also automatically disables the flow of boiling water after 15 seconds of activation. Ask us about the safety features on the tap of your choice and we’ll be happy to discuss your best safety options with you.
Do instant boiling and chilled water taps use up a lot of energy?
All of our instant boiling and chilled systems are designed with energy consumption in mind. Both the Zip and Billi brands of instant boiling and chilled water taps use advanced technology to save energy when not in use.
Zip Hydrotaps, for example, use a sensor activated 'sleep when it’s dark' feature, while the Billi Eco and Quadra taps come with a two-hour standby mode. Billi also uses a unique energy saving system which recovers the heat that's produced from the chilling process and uses it to preheat the boiling water.
Our Hydromix brand of chilled and boiling taps use less energy because they don’t use any pumps, solenoid valves or electric taps.
I’ve had problems with boiling and chilled taps in my workplace before. Is there a simple option that just works?
When the wrong size instant boiling and chilled water taps are installed in workplaces, they do not cope with the demand required of them and this can cause them to break down. This is most likely the cause of the problems you've had in the past.
If you just want a simple and cost effective boiling and chilled tap, our Hydromix brand of taps are a great option. The benefits of a choosing a Hydromix boiling and chilled tap include:
- Low cost product offering exceptional value

I have a stone bench top. Can you drill through this to install my new boiling and chilled tap?
Yes. We have all the experience and specialty tools we need to drill through most granite, caesarstone and modern stone bench tops. You'll need a qualified stone mason to cut through a marble or concrete benchtop, however. We can provide you with the hole size and tap specifications of your choice if and when you need.
