Only Zip HydroTap technology transforms water at the touch of a button into a form you’ll instantly love.

Did you know that water pipes, in many cases, can be up to or more than 70 years old? So, it is no surprise that researchers from Macquarie University have detected traces of copper and lead contaminants in domestic water samples from kitchen taps across New South Wales.

Many consumers don’t understand the importance of water filtration in their homes and office spaces. It is therefore up 
to professionals in the industry to educate consumers about the risks associated with prolonged consumption of these contaminants and the long-term effects they have on brain development and liver function.

‘My results show that there is quite a significant concentration of lead and copper in the drinking water that is coming out of people’s kitchen taps into their morning cup of tea,’ says lead author of the study, PhD researcher Paul Harvey1.

The team tested 212 ‘first drawn’ samples from kitchen taps that were taken after the water had been sitting in a tap for a nine-hour stagnation period — similar to what happens when you run the tap in the morning to make your morning cuppa. All samples contained copper, while lead was present in 56% of the dwellings tested.

Notably, 8% of the lead samples contained higher than 10 micrograms of lead per litre, where Australian guidelines stipulate that drinking water should not contain any more than that.

For decades, Zip Water has been perfecting its MicroPurity water filtration technology to bring you delicious, crystal 
clear, pure-tasting water at the touch of a button. The groundbreaking 0.2-micron filtration system reduces contaminants as little as 1/5000th of a millimetre, ensuring that the water delivered from Zip Water appliances is as delicious as it is healthy.

By expertly reducing sediment and volatile organic compounds, lead and parasitic micro-organisms — such as cryptosporidium and giardia, which are greater than 0.2 microns — Zip Water helps safeguard your customers and their families.

As a longstanding leading Australian manufacturer, Zip Water prides itself on innovation and commitment to national and international standards.

All of its filtration products meet strict performance guidelines, and are independently tested by National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) International and approved under the Watermark Certification Scheme.

By selecting genuine Zip Water MicroPurity filtration, you can be sure that you will be offering your customers peace of mind with a product that will perform, and the assurance that you are installing an approved water filter that meets the highest of standards.
