Water treatment is crucial to the life and operation of a coffee machine and this range of water treatment units offers enormous help against water scale and impurities.
The Bestmax water filter range come in small, medium and large as complete units and as refills and are ideal for commercial coffee machines.
Why is water treatment important?
Filtered water makes better coffee – it improves water quality which in turn improves coffee quality.
It purifies the water to improve taste and protects the machine from scale.
As water moves through soil and rock it dissolves very small amounts of minerals and holds them. The degree of hardness becomes greater as the calcium and magnesium content increases. These tiny particles can cause damage when they get into the internal workings of an espresso machine. The damage that it causes can be extremely costly so machines are usually not covered under warranty if water filtration is not installed.
Water filters do need replacing with refills as they lose their effectiveness as the impurities build up. How often refills are required is determined by how much the equipment is used and how hard the water is.
