Why Filtration Matters For Your Business?

Quality, Taste, and Consistency 

One of the most noticeable problems — usually leading to customer complaints — is that unfiltered water may result in off-flavors. These could be caused by a number of contaminants that may be present in your water, including dissolved minerals and sediment particles or disinfectants like chlorine or chloramine. Reducing such contaminants helps products taste better. For example:


  • Coffee has a richer, more subtle flavor and is not tainted with bitterness, odor, flatness — or, on occasion, surface scum.

  • Cold beverages can be made using the recommended level of syrup as there is no need to use more to offset off-flavors, and drinks have maximum fizz rather than being flat.

  • Drinks from vending machines and water coolers can taste better with no evidence of chlorine.

  • Ice is not tainted with a ‘chlorine’ odor or sediment that makes cold drinks look and taste unpleasant.

  • Equipment in which you display your food appears cleaner, with less flakes of hard water scale present in the oven.

Equipment Efficiency and Longevity

Even if customers have no complaints over sub-standard food and beverages, low quality water can damage machinery. One of the most damaging water quality issues is scale caused by dissolved minerals deposited onto machine surfaces. This may lead to more machine breakdowns, require more maintenance and ultimately reduce machine lifetimes. For example:


  • Scale on heating elements can reduce energy efficiency as it reduces heat transfer.

  • ‘Hidden’ scale — which blocks pipes, valves and other internal components — reduces flow rates and can also cause internal leaks.

  • Scale buildup can cut machine lifespan despite a lifetime of increased maintenance to keep it running.

Business Impact

Unhappy customers and unreliable machinery can only lead in one direction: a negative effect on business. Here are just a few examples of how poor water quality can directly affect business:


  • Machines can break down more frequently or work sporadically if scale is present and may not be available when they should be generating income and lead to an overall higher cost of ownership

  • Customers could become unsatisfied with beverage quality, therefore tarnishing the brand's reputation

  • Unreliable working conditions, regular disruption from service engineers and handling customer complaints may affect the morale of staff

  • Ultimately, this all links back to an increase in running costs for the business — and therefore reduced profits
