    Strange looking inline filter, any ideas ?

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    This is a strange looking "filter" sitting on the line from the water tank to the vibrating pump inlet on my La Scala Butterfly.

    It doesnt show up on the parts list/exploded view of the unit I can find. The markings in Italian on the unit show

    "equipment to use for household drinking water treatment"

    Its a small plastic cylinder with a small red ball in it. Guessing its a softner or filter of some sort. I have *an under sink 2 filter system anyway

    Does anyone know what it is and whether I need it ?

    Thanks, Rob

    Looks to work in a similar way to a car fuel filter

    Filter housing with no filter is most likely. Just make sure you feed it filtered water and dont worry about it. Chances are the former owner couldnt get a replacement so they took the cartridge out.

    Have a read here too on how to resize images ;) 900k pics are a little big http://coffeesnobs.com.au/YaBB.pl?num=1187136315
