Water Filter Change – Calcium Treatment Unit 

A calcium treatment unit will reduce the hardness in the water, thus preventing scale. Scale is a coffee machine’s worst enemy and should this be left unchanged scale will build up and could result in a costly de-scale process to remove it. Additionally a boiler inspector will not certify a machine as fit for use if there is evidence of a high scale build up.

Boiler Pressure Test – Boiler Inspection

Pressure System Safety Regulations (2000)
Your coffee machine must have an up to date boiler certificate. The Health & Safety at Work Act [1974] requires that all work equipment should comply with statutory workplace regulations. To adhere to this the coffee boiler requires a periodic examination by a qualified boiler inspector. This inspection is a requirement of the Pressure System Safety Regulations [2000] and needs to be carried out in accordance with a “written scheme of examination”.

If you have no evidence of an inspection an environmental officer could order you to shut down your coffee machine immediately.
