Ensure you have boiling water everyday!
Boiling hot water services are not typically found in domestic use situations but more in a commercial or industrial establishment. The reason for this is that firstly these types of systems require a large amount of electricity to power them and secondly they are both expensive to purchase and run.
A boiling water system can replenish itself instantly with almost instant boiling hot water, the uses for this water vary but commonly its used for cleaning purposes in places such as commercial kitchens. The most common location for these units to be installed is just above bench level inside of the desired room which is likely to receive the most use most use over a sink in case of any spills and to enable to sink to be filled up with the water and then used for its desired purpose.
Although the reservoir for majority of these systems is quite small ranging from 5 to 10 litres the replenishment time frame is almost instant. The use for boiling water can also be delivered through a hydro tap for the purpose of making tea and coffee, in this configuration the water boiling unit is located below the kitchen sink and the hydro tap is installed above so that any excess water can discharge over the sink.
In Australia there are 6 main manufacturers/distributors of these boiling water units in the plumbing industry and they are ZIP, Stiebel Eltron, Birko, Wilson, Rheem and Billi. Like most hot water systems, they are all very similar and each have their own points of difference.

Rheem offer the Lazer range of wall mounted boiling water units which can deliver up to 40 litres in their commercial range.
