Description Specifications

This combination water softener and filter system contains everything you need to connect your espresso machine to your water source and protect it at the same time from mineral deposits. The filter housings are generic 10", therefore you won't be tied into expensive proprietary replacement cartridge. The carbon filter removes odor and taste and filters to 10 microns, and the softener removes 15,000 PPM. The tubing and fittings are John Guest and require no wrenches to install. The best part is no trips to Home Depot; everything you need is here.

Straightforward install and huge upgrade! June 5, 2017
Reviewer: Mo Lawson  
The filtration system was easy enough to install.  The John Guest fittings and flexible tubing were a dream to configure, cut, and connect.

Since we have an espresso machine with a water tank, I also purchased a dedicated faucet for our sink and connected this system to it.  It's been a huge upgrade for our espresso at home.  I've been struggling to fine-tune the taste of my shots and this made such a huge difference!

Convenient water softening and filtration solution May 15, 2017
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Toronto, Canada  
This is the first softening and filter system I have owned. It was relatively easy to set up, I didn't have any particular issues once I planned exactly where everything would be mounted etc. The kit comes with just about everything you need to get up and running, and at a reasonable price compared to everything else I compared it with. The softener and filter cartridge replacement units aren't overly expensive either which means more savings down the road. Highly recommended!

Somewhat large, but quick and inexpensive January 22, 2017
Reviewer: Bill S. from Jersey City, NJ United States  
It takes between 30 and 60 minutes to install and test, assuming you have little to no plumbing experience.  If you know what you're doing, you can do it even faster.

There are generic filter housings that take up less space which can be purchased from other vendors -- that is, there is a single housing unit which allows you to install multiple filters without any tubing in between -- but if you don't mind taking up a little extra space, or if you need the flexibility of installing each housing component on a different surface because of space limitations, this one will work nicely.
