You’ve spent your time and resources researching the perfect product for you, and what proceeds? … An inevitable wondering about what you should expect when your delivery arrives.

We’ve all been there. Asking, “what exactly will be included in my delivery?” Well, here at Borg & Overström, we never want you to be out of the loop.

In our ‘What’s in the box’ series, we provide you with all the information, and show you precisely what you will find when your Borg & Overström delivery arrives.

Today’s instalment in our ‘What’s in the box’ series sees an unboxing of the Borg & Overström T1 tap system. Here, we give you a first class seat as we open up a T1 fresh out of the box, showing you the complete list of what you will find in a T1 delivery.


The fully packaged T1 tap system will arrive in up to five boxes. Shared between these boxes, you will find:

  • A T1 tap assembly
  • An undercounter ProCore® unit
  • A Simple-fit Ventilation Base
  • A T1 drip tray
  • Your install kit

Now we have our boxes, let’s open them up and take a look at all the specifics!

T1 tap assembly

Starting with the Tap itself, in this box you will find the T1 tap assembly. Inside you will find all the fittings to assemble your T1 tap, including:

  • 1x T1 with Control Panel
  • 1x 1.0m x 6mm Insulated Water Pipe
  • 1x Connector Cable
  • 1x Fixings Set

The ProCore® Unit

The undercounter unit, namely, the high-powered ProCore® or ProCore+ depending on the model you’ve selected, comes in its own box.

Inside you will find:

  • An assembled ProCore® (with a removable protective film on the front panel)
  • The ProCore® unit’s (2.0m) power cord set.

Note: If you order a T1 with the sparkling option, a carbonation kit will also come in the undercounter unit box. In this case, added alongside your ProCore® unit, you will also receive a Deep Sparkle CO2 cylinder.

Simple-fit Ventilation Base

In the box, what you will find is:

  • 1x ventilation chimney (this will fit on the back of your ProCore® unit)
