Common Foodservice & Commercial Water Filtration System Issues & Solutions

Filters can be a good place for bacteria to grow because there is plenty of water present, filters are dark and warm, and bacteria can feed on the organics present. While most of these bacteria do not pose a health hazard, they can cause problems for drinking water and filters.

Bacteriostatic filters do not kill bacteria, per se, but do inhibit the growth of bacteria within the filter.

About 25% of the largest municipal water supplies in the U.S. use chloramines instead of chlorine disinfection because it is more stable in water, allowing for disinfection over longer distances.

If excessive amounts are used or high concentrations reside in pipes and plumbing, chlorine can impart an undesirable taste and odor in your drinking water and other beverages. It can also contribute to foodservice equipment problems such as pitting and corrosion.

Waterborne cysts are extremely common in virtually all surface water sources used for public water supplies. In high concentrations, they can cause various health problems in humans and animals.

The right filtration solution can help control scale, protecting your equipment investment and reducing the need for frequent, costly delimings.

Solutions for equipment sanitization, the process of reducing the number of microorganisms that are on a properly cleaned surface to a safe level.

Hard water can create major problems for ice, coffee, espresso, steam, and warewashing equipment. Excessive scale buildup can clog and corrode, resulting in increased energy usage and higher operating costs.

We offer a range of Everpure brand system solutions that deliver capacities up to 200,000 gallons (757,082 liters) and flow rates up to 15 gpm (56.8 Lpm).

Lead is a toxic material that generally enters drinking water through a building’s plumbing system and is known to be harmful to human health if ingested or inhaled.

The healthiest, great-tasting drinking water and beverage ingredient water requires a specific and balanced mineral composition.

We have an extensive selection of Everpure brand particulate reduction filters to meet virtually any micron rating, flow rate, and capacity requirement.

Prefiltration involves the use of a filter designed to remove particulate matter (dirt, sediment, etc.) from water before further treatment.

RO should be considered if your water's TDS content is high enough to impart objectionable tastes, cause poor beverage and ice quality, or generate excessive scale buildup in equipment.

Excessive scale buildup can create major problems for ice, coffee, espresso, steam, and warewashing equipment. It can clog and corrode key components, resulting in increased energy usage and higher operating costs.

Ice machine slime can develop if equipment is not regularly cleaned and not sanitized regularly. Slime results from bacteria and mold growth in your ice maker's moist, cool environment.

Hard water deposits can clog pipes, reducing water flow, coating heating elements, and requiring more energy to heat water.

High Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) content in your water can negatively impact ice and beverage quality, as well as the performance of the equipment that produces them.

Membrane-based ultrafiltration technology removes particulates, natural organic material, bacteria, and other microorganisms that can impart undesirable color, off-tastes, and odors to your water.

It's important to know what's in your water. By determining your water’s unique characteristics, the right water treatment solutions can be applied to meet your specific needs.
