Reginox UK’s commercial director, Dave Mayer, looks at the growing trend for filtered water taps in the UK market and how its own portfolio of products can help you maximise the opportunities in this market
There has been a significant surge in demand for filtered water taps in the UK market over the past few years. With concerns about water quality and the environmental impact of plastic bottles, more and more consumers are opting for filtered water taps as a convenient and sustainable alternative.
Access to clean and safe drinking water is a fundamental need for every individual. However, concerns about water quality have intensified in recent times. Various reports of contaminants and microplastics in tap water have led consumers to seek reliable filtration solutions.
Additionally, the detrimental environmental impact of single-use plastic bottles has prompted a shift towards more sustainable choices. Plastic pollution, particularly from discarded bottles, poses a significant threat to ecosystems, marine life, and human health. Consumers are increasingly aware of this issue and are actively seeking alternatives to reduce plastic waste.
Filtered water taps offer several advantages that have contributed to their rising popularity in the UK market.
• Enhanced water quality
Filtered water taps effectively remove impurities, including chlorine, lead, pesticides, and other contaminants, ensuring clean and safe drinking water for households.
• Convenience and Cost-Effectiveness
Filtered water taps eliminate the need to purchase and store bottled water. With a filtered tap, consumers have an endless supply of fresh, filtered water at their fingertips, resulting in long-term cost savings.
• Environmental sustainability
By opting for filtered water taps, consumers significantly reduce plastic bottle waste and their carbon footprint associated with transportation and production. This choice aligns with the growing global concern for environmental conservation.
The UK market for filtered water taps has experienced remarkable growth in recent years. The increased consumer demand for sustainable, healthy, and convenient water solutions has spurred innovation and competition in the industry.
Within the industry, filtered water taps – more commonly known as 4 in 1 taps – dispense instant filtered boiling, standard hot and cold, and filtered drinking water all with a simple touch.
Reginox launched the Aquadzi (pictured), a stylish and convenient addition to any kitchen. The mixer lever can be pulled forward or back for hot and cold water while a one tap sensor releases filtered water and a touch and hold frees the boiling water.
It is available in chrome and can be installed vertically in space saving kitchen units.
Prospects and challenges
The future of filtered water taps in the UK market looks promising, driven by growing consumer awareness and the increasing focus on sustainability. As more households recognise the benefits of filtered water and the environmental impact of plastic waste, the demand for these taps is expected to continue its upward trajectory.
As the demand for filtered water taps continues to increase, it is anticipated that the industry will evolve to meet consumer needs, providing a healthier and more sustainable future for the UK’s drinking water landscape.
