Posted Sun Mar 9, 2014, 2:55pm Subject: water softening and filtration - The right order
I am using the Everpure H104 water filtering system for few years now. I recently purchased Rocket Evoluzione V2 E61 machine, and it was installed with a water softener that is chained right after the Everpure H104 filter/
I read in a coffee related forum that the combination is problematic - among other things the the H104 filters, it takes out the chlorine added to the water by the water supplier. As a result, water sitting in the 8 liter resin-based softener (Italian made by DVA) is subjected to bacterial development.
A recommendation was given to chain the parts the other way around - first the water softener, and then the Everpure H104. The disadvantage of that is that I'll have softened and filtered water only (I don't like my drinking water to be softened).
Would like to get your advice regarding the above-mentioned dilemma.
