In the event of a Boil Water Advisory, it is important to “flush” your household pipes by running cold water for several minutes. This will ensure that any contaminants that may have leached into your home’s plumbing system are flushed away.
Providing a continuous supply of boiling, chilled and sparkling water, Billi taps have one of the smallest footprints on the market, helping to maximise under bench space.
If you live in an area with a boil water advisory it’s important to follow the advice. Access to clean drinking water is a human right. During a boil water advisory it’s recommended that you use bottled or boiled water for all uses including drinking, cooking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing clothes and dishes, preparing food and formula. Then wait for boiled water to cool and disinfect before you continue to use it.
Instant boiling water taps offer a more efficient alternative to the kettle. They eliminate the time and energy needed to heat, then cool the water. They also reduce your electricity and gas bills.
The award-winning QETTLE boil water tap offers four flows from one spout – 100degC boiling water, cold filtered water and normal hot and cold flows. It’s easy to operate with a knurled dial and a safety clip to prevent accidental dispensation of boiling water.
Australia’s world-famous Billi taps feature smart filtration technology, advanced digital touch screen and advanced energy saving modes. They are available in a range of stunning finishes and can be installed to suit all lifestyles and workspaces. They are eco-friendly, with patented technology to recover waste heat from cooling the filtered water and reuse it to pre-heat boiling water. Choose from a range of models, each capable of dispensing 15-50 litres an hour of chilled still and sparkling water, plus on demand boiling.
Often found in homes and businesses, a chilled water tap provides filtered still and sparkling water at the flick of a button. They’re also environmentally friendly, reducing the need for single-use plastic bottles.
Our range of all-in-one units are available in a variety of finishes and offer an array of benefits including energy saving, stand-by mode and premium filters. Some are compact enough to fit under the sink, which means they’re tucked away and out of sight. Others, like the Juno Tap, are larger and more suitable for environments that require separate mixed mains water or dual sinks.
Chilled water can help boost your metabolism and reduce hunger pangs. It has also been shown to improve concentration, alertness and mood. The cold temperature forces the body to work slightly harder to maintain the temperature, which burns extra calories, helping you lose weight and tone your muscles.
Having boiling and chilled filtered water on hand in your workplace can help staff stay hydrated, improving productivity and overall health. It can also eliminate the need to purchase, stock and dispose of bottled drinks, which are both expensive and harmful to the environment. Our patented Zip PowerPulse technology uses small energy bursts to keep your boiling and chilled water at the perfect temperature, meaning less energy is used, making it an eco-friendly option all round.
Boiling water is one of the most common methods for disinfecting tap water and is recommended by health inspectors during a boil water advisory. However, boiling tap water can be quite time-consuming and it also does not kill all bacteria or remove chemicals such as chlorine and lead. Using an automatic, electric filtered water system can be a much faster and more effective way to disinfect tap water without the hassle of having to wait for a kettle to boil.
Water filters help to reduce turbidity, eliminate odour, and remove chemicals from the tap water, making it healthier and more convenient to drink. While a water filter does have an initial cost, it will pay for itself in the long run, reducing both the amount of energy used by your appliances as well as the amount of money spent on bottled water each year.
Billi’s range of filtered taps include the Eco and Quadra models, which are certified Gold Level under global GreenTag standards. Their design and material choices help to minimise their environmental impact and are based on HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point) principles. The filtered water taps can be installed under your sink or on your bench and feature an easy-to-use operating panel that allows you to regulate the flow of boiling and chilled filtered water with the flick of a finger.
Boiling water is one of the most commonly recommended ways to make tap water safe in an emergency if your local council has issued a boil water advisory. It’s also the cheapest option to quickly purify drinking water, as you only need to find a heat source and a kettle.
However, boiling water only removes bacteria and some viruses. It does not eliminate dangerous chemicals or toxins from your water, which are often present in municipal water supplies. Water filters, on the other hand, remove a range of harmful contaminants from tap water to help you stay safe and healthy during an emergency.
A water filter uses either a mechanical or chemical method to remove impurities and other substances from your drinking water. A mechanical method filters out large particles by physical removal, while a chemical filter uses chemicals to remove harmful contaminants from your drinking water. Chemical methods use oxidising agents such as chlorine, which destroys microorganisms like viruses and bacteria while reducing the presence of heavy metals in your drinking water.
Billi water filtration systems are environmentally friendly, meeting high standards of Greentag and HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point). Our Eco, Quadra and Quadra Plus models feature state-of-the-art water filtration that’s easy to clean and operates at the touch of a button. Our taps also save space under the bench and are available in a range of finishes to match your kitchen décor. instant boiling water and chilled water tap
