There's no disputing the need for a good water filter. Your 3M (CUNO) water filter helps remove harmful contaminants from your water, which in turn improves the taste, appearance and consistency of your product; these contaminants can include: viruses, arsenic, lead, nitrates, radon, pesticides and much more. 3M water filters feature a variety of water filtration systems including carbon filters and a reverse osmosis system; a carbon water filter works by removing contaminants and impurities in the water through a process called "adsorption," while a reverse osmosis system forces water into an area of higher concentration across a membrane which helps to trap most contaminants.
In 2005 3M water filters announced the acquisition of CUNO, a maker of water filtration products. CUNO's proprietary depth filters and semi-permeable membrane filters adds to 3M's innovative product line to actively remove contaminants from the water. With growing concerns over water quality and safety, you need to trust that the water you serve customers is free and clear of harmful bacterium.
Did you know water filters are also crucial to the operation of your ice machine? Water filters remove bacteria and other contaminants from the water that could build up within the tubing of your machine. Without a water filtration system in your ice machine, the quality of your ice would suffer greatly both in terms of taste and clarity—not to mention that you're looking at a seriously shorter lifespan for your ice machine. Save yourself the (large) expense of a new ice maker and make sure you replace your water filter regularly to extend the life of your kitchen equipment.
One of the best facts about water filters is that they're easy to replace, so it's easy for you or anyone on your staff to make the swap when it comes time to change your filter. When considering your water filter replacement schedule, consider your location. Your geographic area plays a large role in determining the types of mineral deposits in the water, and areas with higher mineral content may need to replace their water filter more regularly. Also think about the type of equipment in your kitchen: do you have an ice machine, coffee maker, steam table or beverage machine? Any equipment that has a water line most likely uses a water filter!
