Getting Started & What you Need

I want to buy a complete Water Filtration system, Where do I start?

We have a range of complete system for water filtration. You have the choice of our Bean to Cup or Commercial filter systems - choosing between these two depends on the set up you have and what you are filtering the water for. You can read through this information page do find out which would suit your needs best. Below you will find information about each of our Complete water filter systems.

 

How do I find out what size water filter I need?

You can work out the size you need by checking the capacity of the water filters and comparing this to your own water usage. For example - if you are looking for a water filter for your espresso machine, and you are serving around 20 espressos and 

You can work out your water usage by calculating the water you are using from the amount of cups of coffees/hot drinks you are serving - say an espresso is around 40ml/50ml and an Americano/Cup of tea is around 200ml. If you are serving around 100 Espressos and 100 Americanos a day, that would equate to 25 Litres of water a day, and around 750 Litres a month. You should look at changing the cartridge/refill of your water filter every few months - in this example the capacity you would need would be around 3000 Litres for 4 months. If you were looking for a water filter for this capacity, you could choose from the iX Filter 02, Everpure Claris Ultra 500 or the Brita Purity C300.

 

What do I need to Get Started?

iX Filter Systems - If you are purchasing an iX filter, the "Complete System" includes everything and is what you need to get started - this is the same for all iX Filters: Filter, Carbon, Dispense, Ice & Vapour. This includes the Filter Head, Cartridge and Refill. The great thing about these fitlers is that instead of replacing the entire cartridge you only ever need to replace the refill insert.

Claris Everpure Filters & Everpure Ultra Filters - For these filters to get started you will need to purchase the cartridge and filter head. When they need replacing you will need to purchase a new cartridge.

Brita Filters - For these filters to get started you will need the Pressure Housing, Cartridge and Filter Head. When the filter needs replacing you will need to purchase another cartridge. You can keep reusing the heads and pressure housing (as long as the pressure housing is the correct fit for the cartridge).

 

What does "Capacity @ 180ppm" mean?

The capacity you will find in the water filter information indicates how much water can go through the filter in total before if need to be changed. PPM is parts per million and is used to measure water hardness - 180ppm is standard water hardness for most areas in England. You can find our map of water hardness in the UK here - generally speaking if you are in an area of harder water you may want to consider a larger sized water filter, or change the filter more often.

Reverse Osmosis

Our Reverse Osmosis Systems Explained...

The Everpure Conserv 75E is a solution that brings the benefits of reverse osmosis (RO) water to coffee applications. It combines a carbon filter, scale inhibition, calcite feeder and blending to create the right balance of minerals to prevent both corrosion and scale formation, differentiating it from conventional RO systems.

It is a reliable, simple to install and easy to operate solution that requires cartridge changes only once a year.

The system helps users meet foodservice equipment manufacturers’ water specification requirements, maintaining warranty compliance, reducing premature warranty claims, increasing equipment life, and ensuring customer satisfaction.

 

Why does Reverse Osmosis make great Coffee?

it’s often forgotten that a cup of coffee is 98% water. The invisible chemicals and minerals that are dissolved in your feed water can have a dramatic and occasionally disastrous effect on the taste of your coffee. Modern reverse osmosis systems allow brewers to remove the undesirable contaminants from coffee machine feed water while keeping certain minerals that aid extraction of flavour from ground coffee and improve flavour.
