Filter Changes



Since 1962

Since its inception in Australia in 1962, Zip has been producing instant boiling water systems for both domestic and commercial use. Now a multinational company, with the taps being sold in over 70 countries, Zip’s iconic red and white branding has become synonymous with instant boiling water.

A wholly owned subsidiary was formed in 1991 to handle UK distribution, with customer service offices established in London, Birmingham, Manchester and Norfolk.

Today, Zip’s wide range of products can be found in kitchens all over the UK, ensuring convenient boiled, chilled and sparkling water at any time of the day or night.



Designed around you

Our HydroTaps feature the very latest technology, meaning they do more than offer a convenient cup of tea or cold drink. The integrated new Zip 0.2-micron filtration system removes dirt and contaminants up to 25 times finer than previous models. Even the taste and odour of chlorine is removed, but fluoride is retained, so the whole family can enjoy crystal clear, great tasting water.



Iconic for timelessness

Since the development of the Zip HydroTap, its iconic robust design and function has stood testament to the Zip values of innovation and sustainability. Found in prestigious homes and apartments across the world, the HydroTap will become a unique statement for your home and kitchen and an essential tool for your busy lifestyle.

In the UK over EIGHT million cups of tea and coffee are made each day using Zip products.

Boiling filtered water, instantly, for tea, coffee, soup and cooking. No more time wasted waiting for water to boil. Zip HydroTap makes it all so efficient!


Crystal-clear, great-tasting chilled filtered drinking water, always on tap. No money wasted on bottled water. No time off the job hunting for water.


Sparkling chilled filtered water at a fraction of the cost of bottled water. So refreshing! Adds life to juices, cordials, spirits and wines.


For healthier drinking, Zip HydroTap now filters your water 25 times finer. It’s the world’s last word in water filtration.

Zip HydroTap “filter change light” flashes when a filter change is due. It can be set to measure both water volume and the number of days in service, signaling whichever occurs first.

Zip 0.2-micron filter cartridges are incorporated into the Zip HydroTap installation under the sink, or out of sight within the Zip HydroTap control cabinet installed beneath the tap.

Zip 0.2-micron filter cartridges are hygienically encased for fast and easy filter cartridge replacements. Cartridges are replaced every 12 months, or earlier if a high level of water usage makes it necessary.

New Zip 0.2-micron filters reduce chlorine taste and odour and filter out particles more than one fifth of a micron in size – that’s one five-thousandth (1/5000th) of a millimetre – twenty five times finer than commonly used 5.0 micron filters, designed to filter out both Cryptosporidium and Giardia cysts and other impurities, for crystal-clear great-tasting water and healthier drinking. This is arguably the most advanced and most practical water filtration system available anywhere today, developed to meet our exacting specifications by the world leader in water filter technology.

Look for the NSF symbol on any water filter label. It is the only way you know for sure that your filter is tested and certified by the globally recognised NSF International organisation against the NSF/ANSI standards 42 and 53.


Beyond comparison for energy efficiency, Zip HydroTap also stamps out water wastage, leading the world in sustainable technology.

Advanced technology cuts power consumption.

Power-PulseTM electronic technology controls power phasing precisely, to minimise energy consumption and power costs.

Enjoy more precise temperature control.

Power-Pulse™ also regulates boiling water temperature more precisely than ever before, maintaining the set temperature within 0.2°C.

Automatically calculates boiling point.

Because boiling point varies by altitude, Zip HydroTap pinpoints boiling point during installation and sets its controls accordingly.

Boiling water temperature is adjustable.

During installation, boiling temperature can be varied from 99°C to 68°C if a lower temperature is preferred. Factory setting: 98°C.

Automatically sleeps when unused.

After two hours of non-use, Zip HydroTap either powers down to maintain boiling water at 64°C or hibernates – powers off completely.

Slow-flash light signals when in hibernation mode.

Touch the controls and the system awakens. Blue and red lights flash, then remain steady when boiling and chilled temperatures are okay.

Programmable 24/7 weekly timer.

Turns the power off during periods your kitchen is not in use - during weekdays, or overnight, or during periods you are away.

Free FlowTM bottle-filling feature.

The “Free Flow” feature now incorporated into all Zip HydroTap models allows you to fill bottle after bottle with filtered cold water even when the rated chilled water capacity is exceeded.

Cuts down water wastage, too.

Every drop of water is dispensed at the set temperature so there is no water wasted running a tap until the temperature is right.


Far safer to use than any kettle, Zip HydroTap puts you in total control of your kitchen safety.

A unique safety lock eliminates the risk of accidental discharge of boiling water. You need to press both the red lever and the “safety” button at the same time for access to boiling water.

Press the blue lever for chilled filtered water. The lever action tap gives you simple fingertip control for filling a glass, jug, carafe or bottle to just the right level without splashing or waste.

Choose a Zip HydroTap SPARKLING model and you can simply depress both levers for sparkling chilled filtered water, instantly. Great to drink on its own. Great with mixers.

Avoid steam exposure to your hands when filling pots with boiling water. Flick up the red lever, and boiling water runs ‘hands free’ continuously for any pre-set period of 5 to 15 seconds.

You can limit boiling water access whenever you wish. To make boiling water unavailable when your kitchen is unattended, it’s easy to turn the boiling water isolation feature on and off.
