all depends on your water to start with as different filters have different specs. In Newcastle, the water is pretty soft so I just use a Brita C30 bypass filter but I do not need it to interfere with the mineral content

Ah, I'm in the midlands. Is there a website that tells me about my water? I'll have to have a look.

 

Damn, that's just reminded me I need to pay my 1/2 year water rates :(

You can get the info from your water supplier, check their website it's probably published somewhere

I just spoke to someone from my water supplier - Seven Trent and I have all the info, what do I need to look for now? Or is it easier to post it here?

I would have thought that an inline carbon filter would drop the hardness level - my local level is moderately hard and was dropped to the same level as ashbeck after instillation there is a thread somewhere about testing it.

I always use jug filtered water in the kettle which stays pretty much scale free. But this doesn't help me with the plumbed in filter.

As said, I use a Brita C30 which sits on my worktop but I am not bothered by it being on show

I use a brita C50 as recommended by BB. I live in a hard water area - do you think the C50 will be softening, I couldn't find anything specific on the Brita site.

 

Maybe I should get one of those test kits.
