Subject: Setting up a line for filtered water- drinking
 

I have a plumbed in vetrano with a water softener and charcoal in-line filtration system.  The water quality is so good I am wanting to install a T-adapter and line before the braided hose for the espresso machine for drinking water and filling water bottles.  

Is there anything I should be warned about (pressure etc) that will harm espresso machine?

Anyone done something similar?

Ideas for terminating a line to fill glasses/bottles for drinking water?

I actually T'd out my filter system to my fridge, so it goes to that and my Technika.  Works great and have clean water for my machine and for drinking.  Easiest way to do it if possible.

Feel free to tap into the line for any water use you may want. I have my water going to the refer for ice and cold water as well as a tap on the sink for drinking  in addition to the espresso machine.

What kind of tap do you have on your sink?  That's what I'm looking for- thought about running it to the fridge- but the water spigot inside the unit is so gid awful slow I curse it Everytime I fill up water- and the refrig has it's own filter but it's expensive to replace and about the size of a hotdog.   The water quality tastes so much better out of the softener/filter setup.  And the cartridges are so inexpensive, it'd be perfect for drinking. Thanks for the advice gentlemen.
