Are you ready for a record breaking 2019 Commercial Ice Machine Season?

This 2019 Commercial Ice Machine season is shaping up to be a record breaker! The majority of ice for consumption and refrigeration is purchased in the summer, nearly 80 percent between Memorial Day and Labor, according to the International Packaged Ice Association. According to AAA / IHS forecast more than 41 million travelers will hit the road this upcoming Memorial Day holiday period, an increase of approximately 6.8 percent over 2018. Another record breaking year! Last year, the highest pump prices for gasoline came just ahead of the Memorial Day holiday weekend. The national average price reached $2.98 a gallon, but it didn’t hit that level again all year and by December had dropped to $2.26 a gallon, the lowest average of the year. The average price of gasoline as of today May 14th, 2019 is $2.85 per gallon and expectations are for prices to fall into the holiday. Temperatures in the southeast are already kicking up into the 90s so you can expect record demand from thirsty tourists this year and commercial ice machine/s to be working overtime to keep up as the season kicks in! So there is no better time than now to make sure that your Ice Machine is ready for the season and Everpure Ice Machine water filters are ready to help. Now is the best time to check your system and order replacement water filters if you need them.  These filters are critical in making sure your machine not only produces the freshest, cleanest tasting ice, but also so that it runs efficiently and doesn’t use more energy than necessary. With record temperatures expected this year, you can expect your machine to be working overtime and Everpure Ice Machine water filters are ready help, and this year’s 2019 lineup includes;

This Sunday, is your water ready for Mom?

As the most popular holiday of the year to dine out, Mother’s Day will entice nearly half of Americans to dine out or order restaurant takeout or delivery on this Sunday, May 12th. According to the NRF, National Retail Federation, this 2019 Mother’s Day will be the biggest one yet as consumers spend a record $25 billion, up from $23.1 billion in 2018. Whether consumers pick mom’s preferred buffet breakfast or her favorite fine-dining dinner, America’s restaurants are stepping up to the plate to help families celebrate the special occasion. And while a majority of consumers make their Mother’s Day meal plans less than a month out, nearly one in five have probably been planning their celebratory meals for more than one month and the first thing that Mom is going to taste is the water! With everything that’s been happening in the news lately regarding drinking water, make sure that your Restaurant’s table water is ready to make a great first impression also. You can be sure that if your water is off color with a bad taste or odor this weekend, it is going to reflect poorly on the person who recommended your restaurant for Mom.


Either way it is certainly something that is easy to avoid, as easy as making sure that your water filters have been changed or if you don’t already have one, installing an Everpure water filtration system to take care of all of the beverages and ice that you are serving.  If you already have an Everpure system, it is essential that filters be replaced periodically. The frequency of filter changes depends upon your water quality and your water usage. For example, if there is a lot of sediment and/or particles in your water, then you will have to change your filters more frequently than a location with little to no sediment. Be sure to replace your filters whenever you notice a decline in the performance, whether it is a drop in flow rate and/or pressure or an unusual taste in the water.

Prefilter, ( First bowl to left, system above)

The prefilter (coarse) cartridge should be changed when it becomes dirty to within 1/8″ of the core or when you see the outlet pressure gauge fall into the red zone. Check the pressure gauge only when the equipment is calling for water.

Submicron Cartridges ( 3 in the middle system pictured above)

The cartridges should be changed at the first occurrence of a) the gallon rating stated on the label, b) every 6 months, or c) the pressure gauge needle falls into the red zone while your equipment is calling for water.

Scalestick  ( cartridge in last bowl to right pictured in system above)

The Scalestick needs to be replaced before the Hydroblend compound is completely used up.

You should also replace your water filters whenever you notice a decline in performance, whether it is a drop in flow rate and/or pressure, or an unusual taste in the water. You should also, per the CDC, replace your water filter after any boil water advisory alert is lifted in your area. Remember: taste and odor may tip you off to the presence of chlorine in your water, but most contaminants are tasteless and odorless.

For the benefit of our customers, we have set-up automatic electronic reminders that are sent when we see that their filters are due to be replaced, based on order history.  We can even set-up Auto-Ship for customers that know they will need water filters by a certain date, but may not remember to place an order.

If you have a question regarding how often you should replace your filter or not sure about the filter system that you have please email your questions and a picture of the system to info@filterpure.com or call our team at 1-800-942-7873 and have a very Happy Mother’s Day!

This Earth Day you can start saving the planet today, one less water bottle at a time!

Sip, save and recycle! It takes more than 17 million barrels of oil annually to make all the plastic bottles that meet America’s demand for bottled water. That’s enough oil to fuel 1.3 million cars for a year, not including the oil used for transportation of those water bottles. After decades-long streak of strong growth, bottled water surpassed carbonated soft drinks to become the largest beverage category by volume in the United States in 2016, according to research and consulting firm Beverage Marketing Corp. Annual consumption of plastic bottles is set to top half a trillion by 2021, far outstripping recycling efforts and jeopardizing oceans, coastlines and other environments. A million plastic bottles are bought around the world every minute and the number will jump another 20% by 2021, creating an environmental crisis some campaigners predict will be as serious as climate change. Currently the average American uses more than167 disposable water bottles annually. Altogether, Americans’ use over 50 billion plastic water bottles a year. The recommended eight glasses of water a day, at U.S. tap rates equals about $.49 a day. That same amount of bottled water is about $1,400 a year, but keep in mind that people prefer bottled water because it taste great! So, how does one cut out all the plastic bottles from their life but still get great tasting water straight from their tap? By purchasing a high performance drinking water system, that goes under your kitchen sink from Everpure! The same commercial quality that makes Pentair® Everpure the overwhelming choice for water filtration in restaurants is also available for your home.

So you can sip crisp, clean luxurious and alkaline, ( if your water already has minerals in it the H-300 system will leave the minerals in, calcium, magnesium etc.) water at home.

The Benefits of Cooking in your Kitchen with Everpure H-300 Filtered Water!

If you tour the kitchen at a world renowned restaurant, you’re very likely to see the Everpure name. We’re the industry leader that professional chefs trust most for excellence in water filtration. They love our ability to remove the impurities that make water taste bad, while preserving the valuable trace minerals that create refreshing flavor. A commercial grade Everpure system takes away all sorts of unpleasant substances – and even some unhealthy ones – that may be in your tap water:

  • Particulates that leave a bad taste or odor
  • Chemical substances that may affect health and add unpleasant tastes and odors
  • Bacteria and viruses that can cause illness
  • Limescale that damages your expensive water-using appliances

Everpure filtered water lets you drink, blend beverages, and cook with confidence.

  • Better tasting coffee and tea
  • More appetizing food – chlorinated water can cause cooking water to taste odd, which can affect food, such as pasta. Chlorine also can affect food color.
  • Tastier homemade bread – chlorine can affect yeast, which is a particular problem in sourdough recipes.
  • Cleaner fruits and vegetables – washing produce in filtered water prevents contamination with chlorine and related byproducts. Even washing salad in chlorinated water can have negative effects.

From elegant fare to simple crystal-clear ice, enjoy gourmet restaurant quality in your own home with a Pentair Everpure system.

Features of the Everpure H-300 Drinking Water System include:

Part Number: EV927076

What should you do to your Everpure water filtration system after a water main break and boil water alert?

It’s getting colder outside and with the cold comes water main break season. If you have a water main break in your area and you fall under a boil water alert you should change all filters and membranes installing new, unused filters or membrane cartridges after you have completely sanitized your system. Boil water alerts are often issued by water municipalities when damage occurs to water lines.  These alerts can also be issued if there is a loss in water pressure, allowing bacteria to backwash into the water pipes. Minerals and viruses like E.coli, cryptosporidium, and giardia, are all things that may get into water when a pipe breaks or during a natural disaster, like flooding. Below is Everpure’s Technical Service Bulletin regarding water quality emergencies and the procedures to place your system back into operation after a boil water alert.

Everpure Technical Service Bulletin 
File No: 011414 
Subject: Responding to Water Quality Emergencies

RESPONDING TO WATER QUALITY EMERGENCIES 
Natural disasters such as earthquakes, floods and hurricanes cause contamination of municipal water systems over a large area. Industrial and other chemical leaks can also cause contamination of water supplies. If a water quality emergency occurs in your location, follow your local municipality’s instructions for addressing the emergency. If a boil order is issued, follow that boil order advisory until you have been notified by local authorities that your water is potable and safe to use.
Following is our recommended procedure for cleaning and start-up of Pentair water treatment systems using Pentair filters and RO membranes for commercial foodservice applications.

PENTAIR® OBEYING BOIL WATER ADVISORIES: 
Obey them, period!
Contamination due to breaks in the mains, general flooding, or damage to the municipal waterworks itself should not be confused with situations in which contamination by protozoan cysts (e.g. Cryptosporidium, Giardia) is discovered in a water supply. Everpure submicron filters and RO membranes are NSF-Certified for removing such cysts, but not for killing or removing dangerous bacteria and viruses, which must be assumed to be present during the aftermath of a disaster, chemical spill or other water emergency.
When a Boil Water Advisory is announced and it is clear that there has been gross contamination, operators should stop using their filtration or RO system and boil their water as advised by their local authorities, until:
1. The “all clear” is given by local water authorities
2. Plumbing systems in your facility have been disinfected
3. Your Pentair system has been cleaned and any old or contaminated filter or RO cartridges have been replaced with new ones

CLEANUP OF PENTAIR SYSTEMS: 
When safe water is available again, all water-using equipment should be sanitized with an approved disinfectant such as diluted chlorine bleach (5.25% sodium hypochlorite). The recommended dosage is 100-200 mg/L chlorine, which is easy to make. Fresh bleach has about 50 mg of chlorine in each mL, or about 500 mg in a capful. Four capfuls or an ounce in a 2-1/2 gal. bucket of water makes about 200 mg/L. Add a few drops of cleaning concentrate (e.g. dish detergent) to this solution and use it to clean external surfaces. Unexposed, interior plumbing surfaces can be sanitized in place using a Pentair Everpure JT Sanitizing/Flushing Cartridge. (Contact your local distributor or sales agent to acquire the JT can). This is an empty housing which can be filled with any cleaning or sanitizing solution and then be inserted into Everpure-branded filter heads. When the flow of water resumes, the disinfectant will be fed into the lines. When a strong chlorine smell is evident at the closest outlet, the flow should be stopped and the sanitizing solution left to soak for at least 30 minutes. When sanitization is complete, remove the flushing cartridge and install new, unused filters or membrane cartridges. Rinse the equipment by flushing water through the system as directed in your system’s Installation and Operation manual. Return your filtration or RO system to service.

POST-EMERGENCY SYSTEM OPERATION:
Follow the replacement cartridge change-out schedule per your system’s specifications. We suggest that you continue to monitor and follow your local water authority’s post-emergency recommendations. Please note that water problems caused by natural disasters often include high turbidity, even muddy, conditions. As a result, filter cartridges may clog faster and need replacing sooner than usual.

If you have any questions regarding these instructions or require additional assistance please call us at 1-800-942-7873 or email us at info@filterpure.com

Introducing the Everpure CONSERV HE-3, High Efficiency Blended Reverse Osmosis System.

New for 2019, Pentair Everpure has just introduced the next generation in high efficiency commercial MRS systems, (Mineral Reduction Systems). Building upon the incredible success of the MRS600HEII system, the Industry standard in commercial blended reverse osmosis systems, the new CONSERV HE-3 brings with it a much smaller footprint combined with it’s own storage tank, instant expandability, (up to 880 gpm) and online monitoring. Perfect for chain Food and Beverage Retailers, Specialty Coffee and Institutional Food Service. Applications include Coffee Brewers, Espresso, Steamers, Combi Ovens and Ice.

Features include;

 Consistently High Water Quality

With precision TDS blending, the system creates customer-specific mineral concentration targets and automatically maintains these output TDS levels for optimum beverage flavor and aroma. This also prevents damage to foodservice equipment.

Remote Monitoring Capability

Exclusive remote monitoring technology provides real-time, internet-accessible information on output water quality, system status, maintenance requirements, and operating analytics. This proactive approach helps improve response to water changes or equipment downtime.

Easily Expandable Capacity

Standard Conserv HE-3 System capacity is 440 gallons per day. For larger and growing operations, increasing output to 880 gallons per day is “plug and play” simple by adding a second RO membrane and post-filter. This is a design feature no competitor can match.

Significant Water Savings

High recovery RO membrane technology reduces water waste up to 80% versus conventional RO, resulting in lower sewer charges and a smaller environmental footprint. System settings can be adjusted based on local incoming water quality to maximize output.

Higher Cartridge Capacity

Filter cartridge and RO membranes have a higher grade cartridge capacity that can handle a broad range of incoming water quality.

 Robust Third-Party Certifications

This system is Tested and Certified by NSF International against NSF/ANSI Standard 58 for the reduction of Total Dissolved Solids (TDS); and NSF/ANSI Standards 42 and 53 for the reduction of Chlorine Taste & Odor, and Cyst.

Bacteriostatic Pretreatment

The system’s cartridges are embedded with a proprietary bacteriostatic technology that effectively inhibits the growth of bacteria on the filter media that can decrease product life.
