Impressive Performance

The installation instructions look simple to follow, but since we were dealing with water and electricity I opted to hire a plumbing engineer to make sure this was installed safely and correctly – he was in and out in less than 15 minutes with time for tea and some idle chatter.

The boiler is fairly substantial and takes up a fair amount of space inside the cabinet, but it benefits from a large and easy to read display which is fairly easy to control even in the dark. The filter canister needs to be positioned so you have easy access to install replacement cartridges – guidance suggests the filter should be replaced every 6 months and whilst I haven’t had to do it yet, the instructions again seem quite easy to follow. The downside is replacement hot water cartridges appear very expensive. The filter media is carbon which should deal with chlorine and sediments, but this type of filter media won’t reduce heavy metals or limescale which will likely fur up the boiler (just like your kettle) if you live in a hard water area.

The tap itself looks modern and I like it more than the original mixer block that was fitted in my kitchen. The heating process is near instantaneous, but there is a short delay between activation of the tap and the flow of ‘boiling’ water – the result is impressive and much faster than boiling the kettle.

Reasons to Upgrade

For instant hot boiling water for drinks and food preparation with out having to boil or need a kettle ever again.

Boiling hot water taps and hot water taps are good if you’ve got food preparation supplies at a moments notice or entertaining friends. It’s like having a kettle on the go all the time but much quieter and cheaper, and without the time factor involved while you wait for the old-fashioned appliance to boil. It’s also a considerably easier option than an instant hot water kettle, useful that they are.

I hope you enjoyed this review and if you have any questions about the RAPSNK3 or want to leave your own personal review, leave a comment below.



  1. Straight forward installation for instant hot water. Ideal for use in garages, outhouses and home extensions. Safety features not only employ modern technologies but makes the product family friendly. Electronic touch settings make for ease-of-use and is modern. Illuminated display showing when water is heated up allows for usage regulation and therefore energy saving. No need for a separate kettle in the garage now.

  2. Exceptionally well made, and beautifully engineered piece of kit. Installed in 30mins by a professional plumber.

    If you look at the cost including installation, plus the filter replacement it really can only be classed as an indulgence, rather than an essential purchase.
