I have seen we discussed water boilers on various topics, but I think is best to have all that information in one place. If there was a previous topic about this (which would mean that my search skills are rubbish) my apologies.

As I'm planning to serve a lot of teas in my future tearoom, I want to get a hot water boiler. Preferably one that has an under counter unit and a faucet on top. 0

I have various brands like Marco, Instanta, Lincat, Bravilor, Buffalo, Adexa, but I would like to know what you are using and what are your experiences with those (or other) brands. Did your boiler ever break down? Had any troubles with it? How fast is when you are in a rush (I don't want clients waiting for their tea because my boiler takes ages) and how reliable it is when you need a certain temperature (because I will need various temps like 75 or 80 degrees).

Also, I'm located in a hard water area so any softner recommendations are also welcomed (especially about some decent cheap ones).

Thank you!

We use a Marco Mix, set to 97, 85 and 70. No complaints after two years, but my friend had one in their cafe which broke fairly soon after purchase. The capacity is pretty small so maybe not one to go for if you're expecting to do crazy volumes, but we've never maxed it out.
