Zip HydroTap® Ambassador: Jamie Durie


March 8th, 2013

Jamie is widely recognised around the world as an outstanding award-winning landscape designer, but he is also a highly successful interior designer, product designer, author and television personality, appearing regularly in top rating TV shows with large audiences in Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom and USA.

He is also a passionate environmentalist, and one motivation for his involvement with Zip HydroTap is the fact that it is particularly energy efficient in delivering boiling or chilled or sparkling filtered water at home or at work.


Zip Industries is an Australian-owned company that introduced the worldʼs first small instant boiling water heaters some thirty years ago. Today millions of people around the world use Zip instant boiling water each day, and the market for Zip HydroTap is growing internationally at an ever-increasing rate.

In 2012, the first Zip HydroTap dispensing sparkling chilled filtered drinking water as well as boiling and still chilled filtered water was introduced in Australia and the UK and was received with great enthusiasm by architects, interior designers, kitchen designers and home owners everywhere.

At the same time, Zip has also introduced a new standard in water filtration to cater for a growing demand for better tasting drinking water without reliance on expensive bottled water. Each new Zip HydroTap is equipped with 0.2 micron filtration which not only eliminates chlorine taste and odour but also filters out contaminants as tiny as 1/5000th of a millimetre, including the parasites Cryptosporidium and Giardia.
