How To Choose A Chilled Water Tap

Instant chilled water on tap is a fantastic thing to have in your home or office. Even better if it’s filtered water that has all the nasties removed and tastes great. However, with all the different chilled filtered water tap options and variations to choose from, it can be hard to know what chilled water tap solution is right for your requirements. Below, we list what you need to consider when choosing a chilled water dispenser along with the chilled filtered water dispensers available in our range.

Choosing The Right Chilled Filtered Water Dispenser

Before you choose a chilled filtered water tap, the factors you need to take into consideration are space, tapware or dispenser style, installation, ongoing costs and what aftercare/support is available.

Space Efficiency

When it comes to chilled water dispensers you don’t want a system that takes up valuable space on a bench top. Water coolers that use refillable bottles can sometimes be in the way, often placed in an area where you don’t necessarily want people to be stopping for water.

A chilled filtered water tap with a compact under bench system is ideal as it doesn’t take up bench top space, or lots of cupboard space and the only thing you see is the actual chilled filtered water dispenser. This not only saves space but also keeps your office looking professional without a bulky and unsightly unit out on display. Knowing that space is an important factor, we have designed our underbench chilled filtered water tap systems so they have one of the smallest footprints on the market.

Dispenser Design

Having a chilled water dispenser doesn’t mean you have to compromise on your office aesthetic. If you’ve invested in a modern office space you’ll want tapware to match. Our chilled filtered water dispensers come in a range of modern, stylish, designs in a variety of finishes including:

– Chrome

– Brushed Chrome

– Matte Black

– Matte White

– Urban Brass

– Gun Metal Grey

– Rose Gold

They have also been ergonomically designed so are easy to use and we have remote and touch dispenser chilled water dispensers available also.


You most likely don’t want a system that requires the costly exercise of cutting into your cabinetry so check that this isn’t required for your chilled filtered water tap installation. With our chilled filtered water dispensers, cabinetry cutouts aren’t required and they also don’t need ventilation so are quick, easy and cost-effective to install.

Maintenance Costs

In regards to ongoing costs, you will want to ensure your chilled water dispenser is energy efficient not only to minimise unnecessary power usage but also the impact on the planet. Our systems use our unique heat exchange technology making them extremely energy efficient. We are also the only chilled filtered water tap manufacturer with 3rd party environmental product certifications with Global GreenTag. Servicing and consumables such as filter cartridges are another consideration here.

To ensure your system’s longevity, trouble-free operation and optimal water filtration you will need regular servicing and filter replacements. We offer service and maintenance plans where an accredited Billi technician services your unit and can also replace filters for you. Our filters are easily available online and you can also replace these yourself if preferred. We generally recommend replacing filters every 12 months however this will depend on the water quality in your area and usage.
