Making Better Water For Your Hotel Guest

Hotel water supplies are concerned with every aspect of water quality due to the multiple uses throughout the facility.  Clean sparkling water is expected at the restaurant and bar at all times.  The same expectations are throughout the entire experience at a resort for guests.  A single filtration system will not be able to address all the needs, but at Filter Pure we can guide you to the most effective way to have the best water for your hotel. Below are two of the most common water uses for a hotel that influences the customer’s experience. Ice can have a great impact due to its visual presentation and ability to store unpleasant taste and odors if present.  Having foul smelling or cloudy ice is not an option for any operation and correcting the problem is not a difficult process.  The first step in getting clear ice is utilizing an Everpure Insurice system.  Using .5 micron filtration and scale inhibitors you are guaranteed great ice while protecting your equipment.  The carbon filtration clears up any remaining taste and odor contaminants that may be present to give the best ice for your customer. Soda fountains are a large source of water use for hotels that operate a restaurant or banquet area.  Soda requires the same level of filtration to remove taste and odor problems, but also needs to be used without a scale inhibitor.  Scale inhibitor is great for protecting your equipment but inhibits the carbonation.  A system running with the wrong filters can flatten a soda and leave the freshness to be desired.  The best system we have found for soda fountain use is the Coldrink series of filter systems.  These top rated systems and are easy to maintain like all Everpure products. At Filter Pure, we are always glad to help and lend a hand with any water problem you may encounter.  For more information or to request a quotation please contact us at 1-800-942-7873.

How Often Do I Change My Water Filter?

One of the most common questions we hear from our customers is in regards to how frequently a water filter cartridge should be changed. Whether it’s a standard sediment or carbon filter, every customer has one key priority in mind: How Long Will I Have Dependably Clean, Great Tasting Water? In other words, how can I be sure that my filter is still reducing the impurities that can impact the flavor of my water? Our standard answer: It depends. The frequency of filter changes depends upon your water quality and your water usage. For example, if there are a lot of sediment particulates in your water, then you will have to change your filters more frequently than someone with little to no sediment. If you are a large restaurant consuming large amounts of water a minute or a hospital with large ice machines, then your usage will demand more frequent filter changes. Having said that, we suggest replacement schedules that are generally as follows: Everpure High Flow CRS Quad MC2 System The most common Everpure Filtration System, mainly seen in the back of the house of restaurants should be changed every 6 months, or every 36,000 gallons. The EC210 prefilter, to the left of the MC2 filters, should be changed more frequently to extend the life of the MC2 filters. We recommend every 3-4 months.       Insurice Triple PF i4000(2) System w/ 20″ Prefilter For water filtration on ice machines, sometimes it can be difficult knowing when to change the filters, especially if you see no difference in the ice. But even if the ice is fine, deep inside the machine inches of scale can be forming and ruining your machine. That’s why it is important to keep a filter change out schedule. We recommend every 6 months or however many gallons are specified on the water filters. For the system pictured to the left, the Insurice Triple PF i4000(2), change those filters every 36,000 gallons of use. Again, changing the prefilter will give your primary cartridges longer life. 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 water filter or filter model not included in the list above, and have a question regarding how often you should replace your filter, I invite you to submit a question below or call our team at 1-800-942-7873.
