Sophisticated electronics make sure that all Microboil units will automatically supply boiling water 24 hours a day, 365 days a year - even when the unit is automatically re-filling after heavy usage.
The Microboil Standard shares much of the same robust design philosophy as the Microboil Premier but without certain optional features present in the Premier in order to provide a cost competitive option. In particular the Microboil Standard offers:
In hard water areas the presence of naturally occurring minerals in water may cause scale to form. Whilst scale may be controlled by periodic use of a proprietary descaler (such as those available from supermarkets for treating kettles, irons etc) the effective control of scale can be problematic in some circumstances. Where this is the case Aquahot recommends the use of Claris high capacity ion exchange filters. These filters are specifically designed to remove scale forming minerals (and chlorine) from water without using chemicals such as polyphosphates that can impair the quality of water used for making hot beverages. The Claris filters are simple to install and require no maintenance other than filter replacement, typically after about 6 months. Filter replacement is a simple task requiring no expertise or tools.
