Carron Phoenix launches its first boiling water tap with the Seraphina
Carron Phoenix has entered the growing boiling water tap market with the launch of its new Seraphina model in the universally popular swan neck style in a chrome finish. The tap was launched in May as part of the company’s newly updated and repositioned Elite Range of sinks, taps and waste disposal products.
Seraphina utilises 3-in-1 technology allowing hot, cold and boiling water at 100C to be dispensed from the single tap, giving the benefits of user convenience and keeping the sink space neater with just a single appliance. The tap features a safety button on a twist-and-turn control to prevent accidental boiling water activation.
Unlike many models, Seraphina has the benefit of incorporating a water conditioning filter in the boiling water unit, which improves the taste of the boiling water by reducing chlorine and limescale. It also protects the tank against sediment build-up which ensures optimum performance and longevity.
Replacement filters are easy to order and self-fit.
The Seraphina operates from a hot water tank that is slim enough to fit neatly underneath the base unit behind a standard 150mm cabinet plinth, helping to save precious space in kitchen cupboards which is a benefit over many other models. The Seraphina can be fitted new or retrospectively and requires a single standard-sized 35mm tap hole.
Says Neil Clark, marketing director for Carron Phoenix:
“Boiling water taps represent a rapid growth area for taps in the future and a big opportunity for retailers as an added-value sale. Our retailer base has been asking for a Carron branded model and we believe the Seraphina can compete with the best on the market as it combines all the latest technology, competitive pricing and a five year guarantee.”
