Ice is 100% water. 70% of service calls are water related.

Good quality ice has a sparkle to it.
When you serve a glass of ice water, you want it to look clean and crystal clear. Everpure products remove particulates that can cause cloudy ice, and improve the taste and odour.
In addition, our treatment filters control the build-up of scale in ice making machines, and so maintains  peak operating efficiency, and prolonged life.

What Causes Ice to Turn White?

Ice appears white when it contains trapped air bubbles and minerals. Some of the more common impurities found in water are minerals like calcium and magnesium, as well as sediment. As these things freeze, gases are released, creating air bubbles and causing ice to shrink on occasion. If you have noticed that your ice maker appears to be producing ice of a smaller size, this is likely the issue.

What Happens if Ice is White?

Since white ice is created by trapped air, it also causes it to melt faster. The minerals present in white ice can also give it a bitter or metallic taste, affecting the quality of the beverages you serve. If your commercial kitchen is known for its beverages or prides itself on producing high-quality frozen products, such as smoothies or other foods, boosting water quality will benefit your business.

How to get clear ice?

Pentair Everpure filtration solutions remove particulates that result in cloudy, “soft” ice, and reduce contaminants to improve taste and odour.

The i2000-2 & i4000uses precoated sub-micron technology that reduces dirt and particles as small as 1/2 micron in size along with unhealthy contaminants. Ensure your water is free of contamination such as asbestos fibers, cryptosporidium, giardia cysts, and bad taste by purchasing a replacement i2000-2 cartridge today!

Filtered water makes the best ice. Feeding your ice maker with contaminated or hard water produces cloudy, dirty ice that melts in your beverages and taints the flavour. A water filter for your ice machine enhances the quality and flavour or your ice in your home or restaurant. John Woodard, our Master Water Specialist, explains why you need a water filter for your ice machine.

Why Is Clear Ice so Important for Cocktails?

Hammond explains that different types of ice melt at different rates. In cocktail-making, this means the variety of ice affects the cocktail’s rate of dilution as well as its consistency, which allows the other ingredients to be tasted at their fullest. Here’s where clear ice comes into play. Yes, it’s visually striking. Yes, it signals time, craftmanship and value because it’s difficult to create. But it also melts more slowly than cloudy ice because it’s denser – it contains fewer air bubbles. The bartenders at STIR match the style of cocktail or spirit with the type of ice cube that will offer the correct rate of dilution. Take note. Large clear rocks are king for chilling but not over diluting cocktails like old fashioned’s, which are sipped slowly. Smaller clear rocks are ideal for quick sippers like palomas. And sphere-shaped clear ice is perfect for keeping every sip of whiskey the same temperature and flavor.
