Commercial Faucet Buying Guide
Water is one of the most important parts of a restaurant - it's an ingredient, it's a beverage, and you use it to clean everything from the floors you walk on to the dishes you eat off of. And while it may seem like a simple thing, the stainless steel sink and faucet combination you pick to deliver that water will affect the productivity, ease of use, and aesthetics in your business. With that in mind, make sure that you're picking the best faucet for the job!
The Importance of Water Filters for Your Restaurant Equipment
A filter system is an integral part of your restaurant equipment's water tank! Here at WebstaurantStore, we get a lot of customer orders asking why, or if, a filter is even necessary when they purchase a commercial ice machine , coffee brewing equipment , or steam equipment . Filters not only ensure that you have sanitary, great tasting water and ice, but they keep your equipment working longer.

This helps prevent odor and chlorine taste in your ice and beverages. Blocking these substances not only helps with water sanitation, but keeps equipment running smoothly. Machines with mineral buildup will run less efficiently and break down sooner, which means you lose money. In fact, poor quality feed water will actually void the warranty on most ice machines. In short, spending a few hundred dollars on a filter system now will save you several thousand dollars in the future! Luckily, we make it easy to choose the right filter by automatically pairing a compatible C Pure AQUAKING filter system to your ice machine order. Need more proof as to why a filter is needed? Take a look at the gunk we found in the water tank of a standard office coffee urn . The images below show what a water tank will look like after approximately one year of use without a filter. The buildup was so thick, it had to be scooped out. Avoid this mess by installing a water filter prior to using your equipment! View our ice machine filters and our hot beverage equipment filters to find the best filtration system for your machine. Water Filter Types Although U.S. drinking water has been protected under the Safe Drinking Water Act since 1974, many experts warn that water from a tap source does not meet health guidelines. While you cannot always control the source of your water, you can certainly add an extra layer of protection from contaminants by purchasing an ef
