What is a zip tap?

Zip tap or Zip HydroTap is a water boiling, chilling, and filtering system that uses sub-micron filters to help reduce the taste and odour arising from chlorine whilst being able to remove contaminants from the water.

How does a zip tap work?

Zip tap units utilise conventional refrigerant compressors to help in chilling water. They have an immersion heating element that helps with the boiling of water. The electronically controlled water boiling and filtering systems are designed for tea rooms and kitchens. They have a dispensing tap that is mounted under a bench or on a sink for residential applications. A sub-micron filtering system comes with the Zip taps to help reduce odour and taste of chlorine and eliminate particulates as tiny as a thousandth of a millimetre. The filters also reduce protozoan cysts including Giardia. Additionally, they are able to filter asbestos fibres, rust, dirt, and prevent the accumulation of scale deposits that may be found in boiling water tanks.

How to install a zip tap?

Zip taps are not your ordinary sink tap, and are installed in 3 stages: first, start with the tap, followed by installation of the under-sink unit, and finish off with connection and testing of the system. Especially when dealing with hot water systems, components should be installed by qualified professionals with the tools and expertise to successfully and, most importantly, safely install the unit.

How long does a zip tap filter last

As a general rule of thumb, Zip tap filters will last about 6 to 12 months or so. However, the timescale it lasts is dependent upon how heavily or lightly you consume water. For increased water consumption patterns, you may need to replace the filter more often.

How do I know when a zip tap water filter needs replacing?

If 12 months have passed and you have not replaced your Zip tap filter, then it’s time to replace it. You may also notice some telltale signs that indicate your filter cartridge needs replacing. Reduced water pressure, water giving off bad taste or odour, or a flashing indicator light will show that you need to replace the filters; these are things you want to look out for.

How to change a zip tap filter

Changing a zip water filter is a multi-step process, requiring the water to be turned off at the mains, followed by releasing of built-up pressure, installation of the cartridge, and post-installation flushing of the system. As a final step, the Zip unit needs to be re-calibrated. It is recommended that installation and changing of Zip tap water filters should always to be handled by a qualified and certified professional.

Why does your filter need to be replaced?

Domestic and commercial water filters contain components that need to be regularly replaced in order to continue functioning correctly. Filters are consistently trapping sediments and debris, and if not maintained correctly can become clogged with these substances after months of use. Eventually the filters will become restricted, resulting in the flow of water passing through reducing the efficiency of the water pressure. By implementing a periodic maintenance program (something that we’ll actively help you with by sending reminders when it gets close to the time for a regular maintenance check-up) we ensure that your water supply continues to operate at its optimal performance

There are many different types of filtration systems available and it’s important that the correct type is installed to achieve the highest water quality available.
