Perfect water, Perfect coffee...
The question often arises, "Should I use a filter in my new Jura coffee machine?". There are many reasons why it is advisable to do so. First and foremost, it protects your investment. "But I have a system installed in my home" you say. Well that reverse osmosis system, water softener, or cartridge filter may not do what is required to ensure a perfect cup of coffee. Jura say, "the water hardness may fluctuate a lot even if using a descaling system. This is often due to the regeneration quality, which is unknown. What's more, softeners do not remove substances with a smell and taste, such as chlorine, from the mains water."
Coffee contains 98% water. In addition to calcium, minerals and fluorides, the mains water in many areas contains traces of lead, copper, aluminium and chlorine. Water quality and water hardness vary from place to place and depending on the time of day. With the formula Jura have developed, the Jura Clearyl filter cartridges are ideally suited to mains water anywhere.
What is more, the water that has passed through a Jura Clearyl filter is optimized for coffee. Some calcium (hardness) is required for good coffee. That is why distilled water is not recommended. neither is bottled mineral water, since that has high mineral content, by definition.

N.B CLARIS filters are not legally sold in the USA. The "Claris" trademark is NOT licensed to Jura to be marketed with filters in North America. Only in Europe and the rest of the world.
Also be aware of generic filters that are not manufactured to the same exacting standards as Jura filters, which are made in Switzerland in their dedicated factory.
Your Jura Clearyl filter is designed to do its job, for an average of 50 litres of water passing through, or about two months.
TIP: Remember all the water that is used counts, so you should minimize the number of power up, power down rinses that occur.
The capacity of the filter cartridge depends on the water hardness setting on your Jura machine. Test your water using a test strip (available on request).
