Recommended extras

We've hand-picked these items because they are a great choice alongside the Vellamo Cappa Filtered Cold and Instant Boiling Water Tap with WRAS-Approved Boiler & Filter Unit - Chrome

The Cappa - Top of the range boiling tap performance from Vellamo


The Cappa, along with the 'U-spout' Mokka, is Vellamo's top-of-the-range boiling tap. Unusually (not only for its price but also for boiling taps in general) the Cappa holds a UK WRAS approval for its quality boiling tank design. It also holds a whole host of other approvals to demonstrate that you don't always have to pay a fortune for a quality product.

The fully-featured boiler has stainless steel elements, sensors and dry float; a unique Venturi expansion system that ensures consistent temperature cup after cup; a highly accurate thermostat and 2 preset temperatures. It is powered by a standard 13 amp plug - no tricky installation here. A 2.4 litre capacity means there's more than enough capacity for domestic needs.

Unlike most 3-in-1 taps which dispense instant hot water as well as mains hot & cold water, from the Cappa you get instant filtered hot water, standard hot, and also filtered cold water all from the same spout. This means that as well as being able to get rid of your kettle, you can also stop buying bottled water or filter jugs.

The tap itself has a beautiful polished chrome finish and a C-shaped spout that swivels left and right. The standard hot and filtered cold are controlled by the single lever. The boiling function is controlled on the opposite side. Depressing the child safety button allows for the handle to be rotated, drawing the boiling water from the tank. With a spring-loaded mechanism, once you've rotated the handle, the boiling water stream remains on until released, where it returns back to the off position, allowing for safe operation in the presence of children.

Filtered Boiling Water - Tastes Better, Last Longer


On its way into the boiler unit, the water passes through a high grade filter. The Nano Carbon Phosphate filter coats the calcium in your water to stop it sticking to the tank whilst also removing chlorine to improve the taste. This protects the tank and also gives you cleaner, purer boiling water.

Important: The filter unit must be changed every 6 months to avoid invalidating the guarantee of the tank unit - please see our recommended extras

Compact Tank Takes up Less Space:


• Height - 334mm
• Width - 225mm

Please note : The maximum water pressure for the tap is 3 bar. The maximum water pressure for the boiler tank is 5 bar.

Minimum Water Pressure

Your water pressure depends on your home's water system. It’s important to consider water pressure when buying a new tap or shower. Buying a product with a minimum water pressure that’s too high for your home will result in poor performance.

- With a combi boiler you can usually expect between 1 and 2 bar

- With a gravity system (cold water tank in attic) you may have as little as 0.1 or 0.2 bar upstairs, and perhaps 0.5 bar downstairs

- With a high pressure unvented system (hot water cylinder, no cold water tank) you will generally have between 1 and 3 bar

You can install an item with a low minimum pressure rating on a high pressure system, but avoid installing an item with a high minimum rating on a low pressure system! Read our guide to water pressure to learn more.

Taps use either a ceramic disc cartridge or a rubber compression washer to control flow. Rubber washers will naturally wear down with use, and the tap handle will require more and more rotations to turn on or off. On the plus side, it's very easy to replace a rubber washer and they're available everywhere. 

Ceramic disc cartridges need only a 90-degree rotation to fully open or close, and the 2 ceramic plates are incredibly hard-wearing and resilient. They're more expensive to make, but they allow for a huge range of designs, easy operation and simple maintenance if needed.

Whilst it is rare for a ceramic cartridge to need replacing, you may very occasionally need to remove and rinse the cartridge if grit or debris within the water system is preventing the 2 plates from closing properly. Much like replacing a rubber washer, this is a quick and easy job, and will ensure many years of use.
