Above counter water boiling units
Hydroboil: Save energy & money. Safe,and hygienic fully automatic.
This range of Hydroboil models protects the environment. Unlike kettles, which take time to boil, Zip Hydroboil provides filtered boiling water instantly. It dispenses freshly filtered drinking water at the touch of a button. You never have to wait for boiling water again.
Save energy and money
Like all Zip instant boiling water heaters, Zip HydroBoil is up to three times more energy efficient than an energy- guzzling urn and just as efficient as a well- managed kettle. On standby the most popular Zip HydroBoil uses less power than a 60- watt light globe.
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
