    Rocket Giotto In tank water softener

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi All,

    Just saw the new in-tank softener demoed by Seattle coffee gear and was wondering whether any sponsors are thinking about getting these in as I would be most interested.

    I did buy an intank water softener from Jet Black Espresso not too long ago. Is that the same thing youre referring to (its a plastic canister with tiny little balls inside).

    No- as the tank anatomy is different, this type of filter wont work.

    The rocket product sounds like a resin softener cartridge of some description. ECA may well supply it in due course as they are working on some other funky Giotto accessories.

    Nevertheless, Id still be recommending a chat with Bernard of Bombora as hes probably forgotten more about filtration than Rocket will ever know ;)

    I rang up Espresso Company Australia about 2 weeks ago after finding out about the in tank softener.* They have it, but only as samples and I think they had 2 in total.* They are conducting their own tests to prove that it works before deciding if they will carry it or not.* I asked what price it would be if they did decide to stock it, they still have not worked that out.* So call ECA at the end of November and* you might get more details.* I ended up getting a softener that you can attach to the end of an existing puratap system instead from Bombora.* Its as simple as cut the outlet hose on the puratap and stick the cut ends into the softener and away you go...well soak the softener first...follow the instructions.* :)
