3-in-1/4-in-1? The smart tap terms explained by BLANCO

Ask the expert! 3-in-1/4-in-1? Blanco explains smart tap terms

I would like to buy a hot tap with filtered hot and cold water? I see taps called 3-in-1 and 4-in-1. What is on the market and how do I understand the terms? They all seem to be called smart taps!

A 3-in-1 kitchen tap can deliver instant boiling hot water for drinks and cooking as well as the standard hot and cold water for general kitchen duties.  It is convenient and takes up less space in the kitchen than a standard tap sitting alongside a separate hot water tap.  These kitchen taps are supplied as a complete kit with tap, tank and filter.  The filter only operates in conjunction with boiling feature.

  • Everyday cold and hot water.
  • Instant boiling water available safely and it delivers pH perfect filtered water for making teas, coffees and all of your cooking needs.

A 4-in-1 tap offers all of the above plus filtered cold water.

  • Everyday cold and hot water.
  • Instant boiling water available safely, instantly and it delivers pH perfect filtered water for making teas, coffees and all of your cooking needs.
  • Instant filtered cold water providing filtered water on demand, improving the taste of cold drinks by filtering out hardness/limescale, discolouration and odours using advanced pH balancing technology.

However, BLANCO’s EVOL-S Pro supplies boiling (100 degrees at outlet) whilst most models are hot (98 degrees) which will make a difference for the perfect cuppa!
