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.

This is the minimum recommended hole diameter that this tap needs for installation. Generally, the tap will sit on top of the sink or worktop, and the hot and cold water feeds and fixing bolts will need to slot through the tap hole and be connected underneath. Your hole can be a bit larger than this size, provided it is not larger than the diameter of the base of the tap.

Tap aerators are simple but beautifully-engineered devices that save water and money without a perceived loss of pressure. These small attachments are inserted inside the end of the spout and provide a regulated, smoothed and aerated flow of water by separating a single flow into many tiny streams. These streams mix with air as they flow from the tap, meaning less water is needed to achieve the same 'feel' and performance as non-aerated taps.

They can also be purchased separately and retrofitted to most taps, or they can usually be uninstalled if not wanted. They're a great benefit on high pressure systems where the full flow of water is unnecessary, cutting your water bills and helping to reduce wastage. On lower-pressure systems they can help to improve the performance of a tap by adding air to the limited flow of water available. All-in-all, they're pretty awesome.

Description

Vellamo Kahvi Instant Hot and Cold Kitchen Sink Mixer Boiling Tap with Boiler & Filter Unit - Brushed Nickel


Say goodbye to your kettle thanks to the Vellamo Kahvi instant hot and cold water kitchen mixer tap. With instant steaming hot water at the turn of a handle, you'll never be stood around waiting for the kettle to boil again. No fuss, no having to refill the kettle, just instant filtered hot water, as and when you want it - perfect for a cold winter's morning.

The Kahvi's filter ensures that the water is purified and free of sediment, odour and any other impurities prior to it being boiled, resulting in a cleaner tasting and much better looking cup of tea or coffee, and a longer life for the tap and boiler unit. To really see the difference the filter makes, find yourself a clear glass and compare a cup of tea or coffee made using the Kahvi to one made using a kettle. Trust us, you'll see and taste the difference.

The Vellamo Kahvi isn't just a one trick pony though. Unlike many instant hot water taps which require a separate tap for your mains hot and cold water, the Kahvi can also be used as just a 'standard' kitchen tap with a normal hot and cold water function, meaning that it can be used for all of your kitchen tasks from the washing up, to rinsing your fruit and veg.

For those that are worried about the safety of young children around boiling water taps, fear not. The Kahvi has a safety feature on the hot water handle, so unless this is held down whilst the handle is in the 'on' position, no scalding hot water will come out.

• Patented design on the bladder located within the tank - increases durability against leakages
• Tank capacity: 2.4 litres
• Input rating: 1.5kW (1500 watts)
• Compact design fits in the cupboard underneath your sink

Important: The filter unit must be changed every 6 months to avoid invalidating the guarantee of the tank unit
