    Water Softener Help NEEDED

    I am new to this forum and am looking for suggestions on softening water for my latte stand. I have a Conti Twin Star that uses water I put in bottles. I just had a problem with the machine and hard water was determined to be the case.

    I hear about chemical solutions, magnetic solutions, and very expensive system solutions. Anyone know of an affordable solution? I am a small low volume operation.

    Thanks...

    Water Softner

    Most espresso machine companies offer small water softners made for espresso machines or try espressoparts.com

    Morrisn is right. Actually a water sofetner (tank) is normally inclusive in the purchase price of a new espresso machine. You should check back with the company you purchased the Conti from...in my opinion it probably should have come along with the machine at installation.

    Yeah like Alun said you should check out the company were you made the purchase. it is strange that a softener was not included with the purchase, keep us updated as I'm looking to set-up a latte stand in the future.
