    Billi water filters

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Anybody know anything about Billi under-sink water filters? There's one in an office I'm about to move into, and I'm wondering if it'll be good enough to use for a new HX machine I'm going to put in.

    (Their website isn't hugely helpful in telling me what their filter performance is, in terms of hardness removal, or at least I couldn't find it)

    Cheers

    Having a quick look at their website, it appears that some models use a standard 30cm filter cartridge, whilst others use a cartridge which looks like it might be interchangeable with the Brita C150 system cartridges.

    - If it's a 30cm filter you're home and dry, those are readily available as a "three-stage" filter with sediment, chemical and TH reduction.
    - If the cartridge system *is* compatible with the Brita C150 system cartridges you could install one of those (but maybe talk to the supplier to see if you can work out an arrangement that will let you test it and return it if it doesn't fit).

    Bombora (and their retail arm whose name temporarily escapes me) stock both I believe, and several other sponsors stock at least the C150.

    Thanks for that. I've emailed the company asking about their TH reduction specs, still waiting for their response.
