Water is the most important substance in our bodies and it is the most important ingredient in your restaurant’s success. Water quality affects your food’s taste and it extends the life of your commercial appliances. Below we will discuss why a quality water filtration system should be a priority for every restaurant owner.

What is in Your Restaurant’s Water?

Your restaurant’s tap water can contain a wide range of contaminants. This type of pollution can alter the taste of the water dramatically and they can even be dangerous in large enough concentrations. Some common water contaminants are,

  • Sand
  • Chlorine
  • Pesticides
  • Metals (Iron, manganese)
  • Bacteria
  • Viruses

These materials are not supposed to be in our water but they will not be removed without proper filtration.

What Damage Can These Contaminants Cause?

These materials can cause health problems, especially after long-term ingestion. Bacteria and viruses are foreign attackers in our body and they can cause headaches, vomiting, stomach pain, fevers, and even organ failure in extreme cases. If you ingest unfiltered water then you have likely suffered from these as a result of contaminated water, probably without knowing it.

Lower Quality Food
A restaurant’s reputation is based primarily on how the food tastes. Water is used in the preparation of virtually every item on your menu and bad-tasting water will lead to a decrease in your food’s quality. This will inevitably lead customers to find another place to eat.

Decreased Appliance Life
You rely on your commercial appliances every day. You need them to work to ensure that your restaurant runs efficiently. The pollutants from unfiltered water can build up in appliances and increase the wear and tear on the unit. This will lead you to have to spend the money to replace them more often.
