I put all three samples in clean glass containers and let them reach room temperature (or somewhat close to room temperature).
I am sure my steam boiler and brew boiler will have minerals in them because I have had the machine for several months and I have not descaled it. However, I don't think there would be much build up but I think I would be na´ve to think there was none. In fact, I have been trying to decide if I need to descale it at all. I wish I had a way to stick a little camera in the boiler and give it an inspection. I don't really want to descale unless it is necessary.

The Boiler is treated with the Patented Ruveco Teck. Ruveco Teck is a production process which drastically reduces the quantity of metal in the drinks delivered. All components that come into contact with the water used for preparing drinks and steam will undergo this new treatment. Ruveco Teck is NSF approved.
And then I read this thread about TDS going up after water has passed through the boilers (which on the surface makes perfect sense), I started worrying that we're all ingesting toxic levels of heavy metals! (as opposed to just listening to heavy metal)
