If you ever had water that left a horrible chlorine taste and odor, that's unfiltered water that found its way to your glass. Sediment, chlorine, and other types of impurities can do a number on your ice supply, and the negative impact will most certainly rear its ugly head in the food and beverages that you end up serving to your customers.
Poor-quality water leaves a bad taste in your customer's mouth, literally and figuratively. It can lead to food waste, and not to mention deteriorate your equipment. So, it is important that these harmful contaminants, deposits, and minerals are expelled from the water supply line before they reach your ice machine.
Don’t wait for your bottom line to take a hit or your ice machine to break down early--invest in high-quality ice machine filters so you always have the confidence and peace of mind that your guests are always treated with clean, great-tasting ice. Having a top-of-the-line water filtration system can prolong the life of your ice maker.
Commercial ice machine filters and water filter systems ensure that these foreign particles are filtered out of your incoming water line, leaving only the purest filtered water. Water filtration systems usually come in the form of a filter cartridge loaded with a substance capable of capturing or adsorbing impurities in the water that goes through it.
Sediment filters, activated carbon filters, reverse osmosis filters, and water softener systems are just some of the types of ice machine filters you can use. We carry these types of filters from trusted names like Everpure, Hoshizaki, Manitowoc, and Scotsman.
In case you’re not sure which one is best for you, you can always contact us here and we'd be happy to answer all your questions. If you are simply looking for a replacement cartridge for your existing system, we also got you covered.
Keep in mind that any piece of equipment in your kitchen that uses water should have a filtration system in place. Your coffee and tea brewers, warewashers, and steam equipment should all have one to ensure safety and quality across your entire operation. Remember that these units use different temperatures of water and deal with different breeds of contaminants, so it is ideal for a commercial operation to use water filter systems specifically designed for each equipment type.
