What are the benefits of having an instant filtered tap water system?

Types of filtered water taps to consider
Can’t decide on what is the best tap water filter system for your home? Here are the most commonly found water filter taps and brands in Australia.
Chilled Water Filter Taps
Chilled filtered taps provide refreshing cold water that is filtered on-demand any time of the day. These taps are ideal for those who aren’t too worried about boiling the kettle for a cuppa, but want an instant chilled water solution. In Australia, where temperatures can soar well above 40 degrees celsius, a chilled filtered tap is a must-have for every home. Best brands and tap models to consider include Zip HydroTap, Zip ChillTap and Puretec. Most tap models are generally installed near the kitchen sink, with the systems hidden under your kitchen bench.
Boiling Water Filter Taps
Who would’ve thought you could make an instant cuppa even quicker? Boiling filtered taps provide you immediate access to water at a boiling point that’s free of chemicals, for better-tasting coffee and tea. For those who are short on time, instant boiling water also makes preparing food much easier and faster, with piping hot water ready to go for cooking rice, pasta or cup noodles.
If you’re wondering if it is safe to have a boiling tap in the kitchen, safety features include a safety lock to prevent accidental activation of boiling water and a hands-free lever to avoid hands coming into contact with steam. Best brands and models to consider include Zip HydroTap G4 Boiling, HydroTap Miniboil, Puretec Boiling.
How do boiling water taps work?
Is it gas or electricity? Does it work like a hot water system? Instant boiling water taps have a tank hidden beneath the kitchen bench and is connected to the mains and your water supply. Like a water heater, water is heated and stored in the tank at just the right temperature and is ready for use every time you turn on the tap.
