I have hard water, will this help soften it?
A shopper on Nov 6, 2013
Best Answer: The basic answer to your question is yes. I also have hard water and use this filter in my Rancillio Silvia with no issues. I've been using these filters since March 2012 and have wonderful results to date (11/8/2013). My espresso taste awesome and I will continue to purchase these filters for my Rancillio Silvia. Note: You'll also need the adapter to install this filter into the Rancillio Silvia water container. This is a separate item which can be purchased from Seattle Coffee Gear. Recommend changing the filter every 6 months or less depending on how much you use your machine and how hard your water is. I use my Rancillio Silvia daily to make 1 or 2 espresso and change the filter every 6 months. I also follow the maintenance plan to reduce buildup in my machine. Basically I'm extremely happy with my Rancillio Silvia and the Bestcup S Water Filter setup. I wouldn't pour hard water into my dear Rancillio Silvia without this filter and never will. I would continue to use this filter even if I purchase spring water for my Rancillio Silvia. I hope this helpful and I highly recommend this product.

Cut the hose!Review by A Rancillio Veteran
I installed this filter and pushed the extra hose down into the cabinet as shown on this video. I found that it constricted the hose severely. I had to finally cut the hose to adapt to where the filter is mounted in the tank then it worked perfectly. Hope they never stop making these because I now have a much shorter hose.
