Taps with filtered water / boiling water


First post so be gentle :D

I am in the process of putting a new fancy kitchen in my house and I am getting annoyed at the process of looking for a tap.

I was prepared to spend a small fortune on a pull out spray tap type but have discovered that for the same amount of money or a little more I can get one with more features such as water filtering system / boiling water.

The problem is I am having problems finding information on good brands and possible problems with this system.

I found a filtered water tap with a pull out spray mechanism as well
But this doesn't seem to offer boiling water options.

However I also noticed you can get little taps to place on the side of the sink which will do boiling water which is also fltered.

Example: some called in-sink erators

Does anyone know how practical these are to run/ prone to too many problems etc ? Also how easy is it to fit those ?

Also I am planing on placing a water softner system which will run on the mains ... would this be enough for 'filtering'? This would mean I can get a normal tap and then just get the erator for the boiling water?

Sorry if I don't make sense but it would be great to hear from someone who has had experience with these types of taps.

I am also open to suggestions on brands.

I love saving money but I love spending money even more!

    Yes it can sometimes be quite complicated with all the different tap options.

    If you are having a water softner and you still want filtered drinking water then I think the best system would be to have a Franke trispray main tap with the pull out spray and the filtered outlet. Then for the boiling water, I think you can't beat a Quooker tap. The Trispray are around £700 and the Quooker about £800.

    Hi CK

    Thank you for the advice - appreciated!

    I was thinking about teaming up a normal tap but with the spray - Perrin and Rowe Orbiq Monobloc Mixer Tap with C Spout and Spray - and then place something like the InSinkErator on the side which gives filtered boiling and cold water.

    The Perrin tap costs £336 and the InSinkErator costs £378

    Do you know if this brand of boiling water tank sucks and if the system is pain to run? Do I have to replace something every so often and is it worth it?

    Sorry to bombard you with questions

    Thank you x
