    Water Filters for plumbed in machines

    Is anyone using this set up: http://www.coffeeparts.com/accessories/waterfilters.html

    I am looking around a bit (most likely to go with H2Only which Grant has - looks good) but am interested in any experience with the above as it seems very well priced.

    John, I am thinking about using the Omnipure SCL10, which I understand combines a carbon type filter with the Phosphate to reduce the hardness (I am in Perth so have to use a softner).

    I am thinking that the inline option with the SCL10 will do the trick (Ill run a T off the dishwasher tap under the sink) and it is quite a bit cheaper than a full inbuilt two stage filter with the little tap on the sink.

    I am still not clear on whether I need a sediment filter and if I did how many microns it should be. Some water shops have recommended between 1 and 4 mircons but I dont know if it is (a) necessary and (b) if too small will adversely affect water presure.

    I was also looking at the options available here: http://www.h2only.com.au/main.html

    The water shops are very helpful but they dont really know what I need to hook up to my coffee machine.

    Would you recommend anything in particular? I am just running a one group for low volume use at home.

    Alec:

    I dont think you can really get away from the full two cartridge system.

    If you do try to get away without a sediment filter it will most likely reduce the life of your carbon/phosphate cartridge.

    Imagine too if they are working on the water near you and you turn on beloved techno and get mud out of it!

    You would be very annoyed... :(

    Probably a small price to pay, going two cartridge.
