Why do I need a water softener on my commercial espresso machine?

Scale from minerals, metals, and other substances is what ends up damaging your commercial and industrial hot drinks equipment, creating costs for downtime, part, and labor. After all, when your espresso machine is not working, then you are losing money and dipping into your working capital to pay for repairs. That can negatively impact your ability to grow your espresso and hot drinks business. The goal is to be proactive and put water softening or filtration systems in place as preventive measures that protect your investments.

Water softeners and water softening systems remove ions that cause the water to be hard, essentially calcium, magnesium, and iron. As a result, you can reduce the wear and tear on your machine because you reduce the amount of scale that can build up from hard water.
