The quality of the water used in making coffee is important, as it not only impacts the taste of your coffee, it also plays an important role in aiding the longevity of your espresso machine.
High levels of minerals can cause problems for your machine as calcium and magnesium calcify creating a deposit called lime scale which can coat interior surfaces. This can eventually lead to blocked pipes which restrict the operation of the machine’s water control devices and it can be the cause of leaking valves etc. Lime scale can also coat the heating element, not only making it less efficient but it can lead to a blown element.
We recommend the use of a suitable water filter when installing your coffee machine.
The Q-Series is the ultimate “user friendly” inline filter cartridge on the market. Replacement of the used cartridge is completed in a matter of seconds by detaching the filter body from a permanent Q series head with a twist of the wrist.
As with all Omnipure filters, the Q-Series is ideal for use in any situation where better tasting, sediment-free water is required in coffee machines, Fridges, ice makers, and other point of use applications.
