Total Hardness (TH) Water Testing Strips could help to test the water total hardness in just a few seconds. The quantity of calcium and magnesium dissolved in the water is the simplest way to measure water hardness. Calcium and magnesium are the primary dissolved minerals in hard water. During the heating process of hard water, such as in a water heater at home, calcium carbonate crystals may develop. Hardness concentrations beyond 120 to 170 mg/L are generally considered safe , however machine manufacturers may specify a lower limit (7 to 10 grains per gallon).
During general coffee machine service, one of the main reason for the machine to break down is because of water scale build up inside the tanks. The scale and dirt would gradually block the pipes, causing damanges to your machine and health eventually.
