The Benefits of Having Water Filtration Systems in Commercial Kitchens

Whether you are a restaurant owner or work in the food service industry in another capacity, you use a lot of water for various activities and appliances. From your sinks to your steamers to the icemakers, water coolers, and dishwashers, water is a huge part of your business. When it comes to keeping these items working properly, you need to have the right water system.

Water coming into your business can be harmful, depending on the nature of your food industry which depends on the type of minerals or other contaminants it may contain, they could wreak havoc on your equipment. To reduce this from happening, you should consider a water filtration system in your commercial kitchen.

Benefits of Having Water Filtrations Systems in Commercial Kitchens

The last thing you want to do is invest in yet another piece of equipment for your commercial kitchen. However, this investment comes with many benefits.

1. Save Money

Having a water filtration system can save you money. If you are currently paying professionals to come in and remove buildup or unclog your equipment, then having a water filtration system is a must. It will remove the vast majority of minerals that cause most maintenance issues in kitchen equipment.

2. Increase the Life Span of Your Equipment

Consider how expensive it is to replace an icemaker or dishwasher. You already know how much buildup can occur with minerals in your water. If this continues over time, it will eventually damage your equipment. It may be better to invest in a water filtration system now than have to replace one of these costly pieces of equipment in the future.

If you discourage the buildup of minerals in your equipment, not only can you reduce the maintenance schedule, but you can also increase the life span of your equipment.

3. Improve the Taste and Odor of Your Food

One of your main goals should be to offer your customers the best food you possibly can. Since you use water to clean and prepare meals, you may be exposing them to the minerals in the water. Not only that, but water can also contain other debris such as chemicals and sediment.

Even if these items don’t hurt your customers, it could still leave your food with a faint odor and taste. Place a pan of water on the stove and bring to the boil therby evaporating the water. Is their sediment left on the side of the pot as water is reduced?

You are probably incredibly focused on maintaining high hygiene standards, as you should be. This protects you and your customers from getting ill. Water is used quite often in the cleaning process, so make sure you are using liquid that is free from contaminants and other potentially harmful extras.

4. Convenient and Easy to Use

Most water filtration systems are easy to install. Once they have been put into place, there’s little you have to do to maintain them. You may need to change the filter cartridges once or twice a year, but this will be easy compared to the other steps you have to take to maintain your equipment.

There are many different types of water filtration systems that you can add to your commercial kitchen. Finding the one that is right for you may require talking to a professional and having them assess your needs. The benefits of adding this to your kitchn will have long-term impacts.
