Water Treatment Survey Results

Survey Results

Hard water effects an espresso
machine’s ability to heat and operate by leaving mineral deposits behind which clog valves, outlets and
damage components. Minerals can significantly
ncrease a business’s operating costs.


Water Treatment Survey Results

Approximately half of our survey
participants reported that they
were unaware of the average level
of hardness in the water supplied
to their espresso machine.


Water Filtration Survey Results

Not all filters are designed to remove minerals
from your water.  Make sure to get appropriate counseling from your service technician or reputable water filtration provider familiar with espresso machine operation.

mineral levels.
