Frequently asked questions

Do you repair Zip taps and Billi taps?

We perform water tap servicing and repairs on all leading brands, including Zip and Billi. We pride ourselves on our product knowledge and relationships with leading manufacturers to ensure you get experienced service every time.

There is no hot water coming out of my boiling water tap, can you help?

Depending on the brand of your system, there can be many reasons for this. Some possibilities include the hot pump having worn down over time, the boiling element not working, or some other electrical problem within the boiler causing this issue.

Get in touch with us and we'll work through the issue and find the right solution.

The water pressure has reduced to a dribble through my tap. What do you think could be the issue?

If water pressure is the only problem, this most likely means that your filters are blocked. Simply changing your filters should fix this. We also offer a water filter repair service.

How do Iknow when my water filter needs replacing?

Three of the most common signs your water filter needs to be replaced are:

  1. Weakened water pressure
  2. Discoloured or odorous water
  3. Discolouration in and around the filter

How often should water filters be replaced?

The age-old question: no one answer suits all situations. It depends on the amount of use and the quality of your main water supply.

Rather than playing a guessing game, it's best to stick to a general rule: filters in the workplace should be changed every six months, and filters in the home every 12 months. However, there are some variations to this depending on the type of water filter system you have. Contact us, and we'll discuss your water filter service situation.

My filtered water tap is 7 or 8 years old. I've spent a lot of money on repairs over the years and it's causing troubles again. What do you suggest?

Your system’s usage and service history determine its lifespan.

On average, a Zip or Billi tap should last up to eight years. Once past this, it's probably due for replacement if parts are becoming too costly. Speak with us about your situation, and we'll devise a solution for your needs.

How do I replace water filter cartridges?

Your first step should be to identify the make and model of the water filter you need. Once you have purchased it, it should come with filter replacement instructions. The process will require you to:

  • Turf off your water supply and release the pressure within it
  • Remove the clogged cartridge and clean its housing
  • Install and prime the new cartridge
  • Turn on your water supply and monitor its flow rate

It is possible to change your water filter without a professional's help, but it requires a fair bit of plumbing knowledge to ensure you don’t damage your filtration system or cause a leak. We strongly recommend you contact a trusted plumber or reach out to us so we can help you organise a service.
