Zip Sustainability

Reducing plastic bottle consumption in the workplace

Our products help people to reduce their reliance on single-use plastic bottles by encouraging the refill of bottles and glasses in both the home and workplace. To promote this refill culture in our own workplace, we provide all employees with reusable bottles so they can refill and refresh from our drinking water systems.

HydroTap Command Centre Interface

Cutting-edge energy-efficient products

The under-bench command centre features customisable settings with 3 energy saving modes including ON/OFF timers and sensor activated 'sleep when it's dark' to help conserve energy during periods of low or non-usage.

Patented Zip PowerPulse™ technology ensures perfect boiling temperature by delivering instantaneous small energy bursts efficiently instead of overheating and cooling, which wastes energy and results in boiling water at inconsistent temperatures.

Mitigating climate change

Our factory in Western Sydney installed solar panels on its roof in 2020 and has already reduced its energy consumption by 30% year on year. In that same year at Zip, we also saw a 28% reduction in CO2 emissions and achieved 28% savings in gas consumption.

Refrigerant cooling system

Water conservation

Closed refrigeration forced air cooled systems are 100% water efficient with rapid chilling and heat transfer capabilities delivering consistently colder chilled water.

Forced air cooling removes waste heat that is generated as part of the refrigeration process for cooling water. No water is used as part of this process, making it 100% water efficient. All Zip HydroTap systems use air cooling technology.

Zip Water Technicians
