Location and Ventilation

The Zip Chilltap should be positioned to the left and rear of a sink, and should be mounted on a flat surface. The tap should be mounted at 45 degrees to the edge of the sink so it drains into the sink when running. The under-sink chiller should be located as closely as possible to and directly under the tap. The under-sink chiller must be installed with clearances of 50mm left, right, rear and above. Optional Filter should be mounted where readily accessible on the chiller or on the adjacent cupboard wall. The cupboard containing the undersink unit must be amply ventilated, cupboard doors must be offset 4mm all round for ventilation if required.

Maintenance in hard-water areas

In areas where hard water may occur, such as in the eastern and southern coastal regions of South Africa, the product lifespan could be reduced due to build-up of scale. Regular de-scaling should be carried out by a Zip service provider every 6 to 12 months depending on the severity of the conditions.
