Do I need a water filter?

by Paul Sadler

  • The short answer is "how long is a piece of string?" This is because water quality varies all over the country.
  • If you have good quality tap water you can use it and just descale your machine annually. This is what I do in Melbourne.
  • If you have poor quality tap water you will need a water filter to keep your machine healthy. I recommend the Brita C150 Purity.
  • It's important to note that machine warranties do not cover damage caused by scale.
