As everyone knows softened water makes really bad tasteing coffee. Will a
Pur , Brita or similar faucet mounted water filter or the pitcher make a
difference or should I stick to bottled water for coffee? Anyone tried this?
Thanks for any help...
Using the water BEFORE the filter/softener is not an option. VERY rusty and
lots sediments. Removing the salt won't be a waste of a filter if it will
save me from buying 5 gallons of bottled water a week for coffee and having
to return said gallon containers to the redemtion center ....LOL. So I
assume by your post that Pur filters WILL remove the salt? If so I'm getting
one the next trip into town....
Add an additional $20 5 micron sediment filter before the RO unit and
feed if pre-softener. The $2 (buy them by the case at a plumbing supply
store) sediment filters will take care of rust and sediment and still be
a lot cheaper than wasting RO filter life.
I have no idea what the Pur filters will remove. As far as I know they
are simple particulate and charcoal filters, far below the filtering
capacity of an RO filter.
IMO a Brita or similar 'filter' is a toy when compared to real
Millions of Americans don't agree that softened water makes bad
All ROs come with prefiltering requirements and should be installed
after a softener. An RO has no problem removing the added sodium or
potassium from a softener. But they do have a problem with hardness,
iron, managnese etc..
