Benefits of Filtered Tap Water

Five big reasons people choose filtered tap water

Filtered water taps are a great addition to any kitchen, with loads of benefits for individuals, families and the planet.

Filtered tap water is better for you

Water is an essential element to life, but not all water is actually good for you. Around the world, dirty water is a major cause of preventable illness and death. Even in developed countries where people have access to clean water, micro-organisms and contaminants such as heavy metals can exist in water systems, especially after extreme weather events, and can have the capacity to make people very sick. Zip’s superior filtration system removes up to 99.9% of cysts such as giardia and cryptosporidium, and lead reduction of 98.9% to NSF 53 (health effects) while leaving in beneficial fluoride to deliver clean and pure-tasting water, straight from the tap. Only genuine Zip filters provide this level of protection, removing particles as tiny as 250th of a strand of hair. Regular filter changes from our experienced certified Zip technicians will ensure you get the healthiest filtered tap water available. To book a service with our Zip technicians, click below.

The sustainable choice

Single use bottles remain a detriment to our environment, consuming energy and resources at every step of the lifecycle. Plastic bottle production, transport, storage and disposal all put a strain on the planet, and despite widespread recycling programs targeting single use plastic bottles, too many still end up in our waterways and natural environments. Zip filtered tap water systems are an eco-friendly solution to these issues, bypassing bottles altogether by delivering instant filtered tap water straight to your glass. Commitment to the environment is a core value at Zip. We have consciously created energy-efficient systems that minimise energy consumption and minimise waste through end-of-life recycling for component parts such as filters and metals and closing the loop as much as possible.
