One of the best ways to prolong the life of your machine is to use a water filtration and softening system for the prevention of scale build-up. This water filter system includes everything you'll need to get your direct connect espresso machine hooked up to your water source. We recommend this water filter and softener system for anyone whose water hardness level exceeds 3 grains. If you are unsure of the hardness of your water, you should be able to get details from your local water company or pick up a pack of water hardness test strips at your local hardware store. This particular kit is for those that plan on directly plumbing their machine in to their water line. Make sure that your machine is capable of being directly connected (not a water tank only machine) before purchasing. For an in tank water filter and softener see our In Tank Water Filter and Softener listing.
