Water filtration systems are one of the most important plumbing features of your commercial kitchen. Chlorine has been used to disinfect water since the early 1900s. Sometimes the taste of chlorine can be detected by your customers, sometimes not, but the chlorine can extremely change the taste of your water, beverages, and coffee. Besides the taste-altering component of chlorine, chloramine (a mixture of chlorine and ammonia) is also being used, and with the use of this, stainless steel, rubber, and polyurethane can be damaged.
Water filtration can help your restaurant by providing drinking water that tastes better, decreasing lime scale buildup in equipment, filtering those nasty contaminants out of your water, and reducing service calls due to mineral deposits from hard water clogging your pipes.
Higher-quality water will enhance the taste of your beverages and lengthen the life of your equipment. Whether your business is a buffet-style establishment, a high-end restaurant, or a diner or drive-in, a water filter is important to have for your coffee or espresso machine. Water filters can help improve both sediment build-up and the hardness of the water, which in turn improves the taste of your beverages. Your drinks won’t be cloudy and will be free of contaminants, which is a win-win situation.
Using a filter on your ice machine is a brilliant idea! You can produce ice that is free of deposits and is crystal clear. You’ll be able to use clean ice for all of your beverages, from ice water to mixed drinks to the ice under your seafood stations. Commercial water filtration systems can reduce sediment and improve taste. The life of equipment can be extended, and can produce clean and delicious water.
