How do I clean my BIBO?

I'm going on holiday. What should I do with my BIBO?
If you are going to be leaving your BIBO home alone for an extended period of time, it’s a good idea to turn the water and power supplies off. It will keep the date and time, as well as any of your programmed settings.
What child safety features does my BIBO have?
With smart technology the hot water can only be dispensed once a separate ‘unlock’ button has been pressed. An additional child lock is also included and must be held down for 3 seconds before hot water can be dispensed.
Is the BIBO suitable for cooking?
Yes, absolutely! Unlike similar products, both the BIBO has been designed with a removable drip tray so that you can place items up to 23cm high underneath the spout.
What do the filters do?
BIBO filters your tap water using a multi-stage filtration system and then delivers it boiling or chilled. The BIBO’s UV filtration system uses a carbon block filter cartridge to remove chlorine, pesticides and bacteria .
How do I know when to change the filters in my BIBO?
Smart technology allows a message to flash up on the screen reminding you to change your filters. Once you have done this you can go into the menu and re-set the timer!
Where can I buy the filters from?
You can buy filters in our shop section– we then send you out 12 months supply in one filter pack and you can change them very easily!
I live in a hard water area, will this be a problem?
Our filters do not remove the minerals that cause limescale but the hot tank has been designed to keep those minerals in suspension so that the elements inside do not become furred.
We offer a hot tank cleaning kit to descale your hot tank and we recommend you do this every 6 months regardless of the hardness of your water. We have actively avoided using an anti-scale “dosing” system, unlike other similar products, because we do not believe that adding anti-scale chemicals to the water is the best option for the creation of pure water.
Can I recycle the filters?
Yes! Please do! Both the Maxi Filter and the UV Lamp are fully recyclable
I've ordered my BIBO, when will it arrive?
We believe that you should have the absolute best experience with your BIBO so we get a qualifies engineer to deliver and install. This ensures correct installation for correct use and warranty . You should have received an email confirming date/time/address within 24 hours of purchase.
Can I install my BIBO myself or do you install it?
To ensure the longevity and correct installation our qualified engineer will install the BIBO.
How is my BIBO installed and how long will it take?
Installation takes less than 60 minutes. BIBO is simply connected to your mains water supply, under your sink, and then the thin 6mm pipe is run underneath the worktop to supply your BIBO. Our engineer will drill a small 8mm hole for the pipe to run up to the back of the BIBO. It’s that simple!
What if there isn’t a water supply near where I want my BIBO to be positioned?
That’s not normally an issue, as long as there is a water supply within about 20 feet. If you want your BIBO positioned further away than this then please do give us a call to have a chat about it.
What mains pressure do I need for my BIBO to operate correctly?
BIBO operates happily between 1 and 6 bar of mains pressure.
I’ve got a granite work top – can you still install my BIBO?
If you have a granite or marble work surface that’s no problem. Our engineers have narrow diamond-tipped drill bits which can create an 8mm hole with no mess and no fuss.
What guarantee and warranty do I get?
We offer a 30 day money back guarantee and a 12 month warranty.
I live in rented accommodation, can I still get a BIBO installed?
In most cases, absolutely! But it is always worth checking with your landlord!
Does my BIBO have to be installed in a kitchen?
Not necessarily! Provided there is a water supply close enough we may just be able to install it where you like. Give us a call to discuss further
