Zip Launches Product
to Help Architects and Specifies
Ditch Plastic Bottle Drinking Water Systems
T
he latest product from Zip Water
UK may mean architects and
specifiers never again have to
specify a commercial drinking water
system that uses plastic water
bottles. The company behind the
infamous HydroTap has developed
Zip HydroChill, a high-capacity
filtered, chilled drinking water range
which completely removes the need
for unsustainable plastic bottles.
Designed for offices and hospitality
areas, the HydroChill range caters for
up to 280 litres per hour of chilled,
sparkling or ambient filtered water –
equivalent to 373 bottles (750ml). With
on-counter or below-counter options and
flexible packages depending on usage
requirements, the new range has been
created to meet any need.
Alongside its ability to provide vast
amounts of chilled water – perfect for
filling re-useable glass bottles – its 3
micron Zip MicroPurity filtration system
ensures that the water dispensed is
safe, pure-tasting and free from
contaminants. This means that those
who dislike the taste of tap water have
access to great-tasting water without the
need to buy plastic bottles.
“The use of plastic water bottles in
commercial environments is a huge
contribution to environmental damage,
and is completely unnecessary”,
comments Russell Owens, marketing
director at Zip Water UK. “We know how
important it is to have a healthy drinking
water supply readily available – it’s been
proven to directly impact productivity
after all – but it’s important that those
specifying know that there are
sustainable options out there.
“Even more concerning is that alongside
the presence of microplastics in tap
water, a recent study* also discovered
microplastics in bottled water – in fact
93 percent of the bottled water tested
showed
evidence
of
plastic
contamination,” continues Russell.
“Drinking water systems such as the
HydroChill range are mains-fed with
excellent filtration systems, ensuring that
the water delivered is healthy and
sustainable.”
The easy to install and use range
includes benefits such as portion control
for filling bottles, purchase and rental
options and a complete after-care
package for peace of mind. This
package – HydroCare – includes an
annual service, technical support and full
breakdown cover.
“Whether the brief is to provide water for
meetings and conferences or to keep
numerous staff hydrated, we can provide
great-tasting water in an instant,”
continues
Russell.
“We
would
encourage anyone responsible for
specifying a commercial drinking water
supply to look at whether they currently
use plastic water bottles and how much
plastic waste this creates. Architects and
specifiers are in a very influential
position when it comes to helping
businesses to reduce plastic waste, so
we’re happy to help them make the right
decision.”
Zip also offers a range of glass water
bottles and accessories to be used
alongside the HydroChill range.
As part of Zip’s ongoing commitment to
helping businesses reduce their use of
plastic bottles, it is spearheading a new
campaign. Reuse Refill Refresh aims
to promote refreshment and hydration
without the use of single-use plastic
bottles.
