Safe, hygienic and fully automatic

Connected to the cold water and power supply, boiling water is continuously available, around the clock, at a touch of the tap. It provides for concealed plumbing and electrical connections.

All Zip HydroBoil Plus units are designed to operate up to 400 kPa. Zip HydroBoil units are equipped with patented safety controls to protect against water or power failure. This unique system maintains the water within 1°C of boiling point at all times.

A range of models

Zip HydroBoil is available in varying models, delivering from 12 to 300 cups of boiling water at one time. All models come in either a brushed stainless steel casing or high quality durable white polyester powder coated finish. To choose the right model for your needs, simply estimate the number of cups of boiling water you require at one time and select from the table below.

Protects the environment

As no steam escapes from the Zip Hydroboil into the atmosphere, steam damage to paintwork, plaster, working surfaces and expensive wood finishes is Eliminated.

Triple- action water conditioning system

An optional triple- action under- sink filter conditions the water in three important ways, to inhibit the formation of water mineral scale and sediment in the boiling water chamber, as well as giving you crystal clear boiling water for better tasting tea and coffee.

  • Removes dirt, rust and organic matter contaminating your water supply.
  • Eliminates odours by reducing chlorine, chloramines and other chemicals.
  • Reduces the accumulation of mineral scale in the boiling water chamber
