  1. Happy to test for you, if you can drop by with a sample, just not on weds or thurs, i'm not working. its at Full Court Press btw on broad st. loosley speaking south central bristol has water supplied from the v large reservoirs at chew valley and Chedder. these are then mixed and held at barrow gurney before shipping into bristol. These are massive sinks of water, so rainfall etc does very little to effect the overall mineral content. North bristol has a far wider range of sources afaik, so is libale to more variation and as a lot of it come from the costwolds and not the mendip

  12. Afternoon all, I'll be taking the DE1+ Pro with me to the London Coffee Festival, specifically to Prufrock on the weds before the festival starts (I'm too.busy during the fours days itself) There will be a 2 hour hands on demo slot in the training room late afternoon (4-6) and then another one upstairs in Prufrock from 7.30. I'll start a new post about this , and other dates and venues for a decent UK tour later today.

  15. With size of filter you also have issue with the ratio of flow rate to exchange medium size. With the premiums, the longer the water sits in an the filter, the more work gets done exchanging Ca for Mg. For a very low usage, its far betterbto go for a smaller filter and change more often, the quality will be more consistent. At the shop we use an xl rather than a xxl for this reason. We also flush the filter every morning before dial in to ensure the water that has been sat all night has been removed.
