It is a common, but nasty problem for restaurant, bar, hotel and hospitals: bacteria and slime growing inside a commercial ice machine. Beyond the apparent issues associated with bacteria, the slimy build up inside of ice machines causes poor taste and odor in the beverages. Another huge problem when slime starts building in commercial ice machines is it’s one of the leading causes for low ice production and machine failure. *Note if you have issues with water scale see Everpure EV9799-02 filter.
