Water in WA is a toughie....You will need good quality filtered water. Hard local tap water is an absolute no no as is reverse osmosis. They both kill machines. I saw a Giotto pretty much unrepairable after a hard time in WA.
You need good quality filtered water. A good underbench system which softens and cleans your water will do the trick as will bottled water. I am not certain that a brita jug or similar will be good enough for you.
NB that the Giotto relies in some dissolved solids in the water to gauge that there is water in the tank...No solids = no go. As I understand it, a good filter replaces insoluble Calcium salts with Sodium salts which are soluble...
Thats what youre looking for. Enjoy your Giotto- theyre a great machine..
