Does the Keurig 2.0 need a water filter?
The keurig water filter is a highly porous carbon material. A large number of microcells causes the presence of an extensive active surface, each section of which is capable of fixing foreign particles. The basis of keurig water filter is carbon concentrate of different origin.
In practice , coals from the following types of raw materials are used:
- coconut and fruit shells,
- fruit seeds;
Sorbents are obtained by carbonation, followed by activation. Most often, carbon concentrates are activated by water vapor.
Depending on the temperature, the hot moisture supply mode, and other agents that increase the absorption capacity, the material acquires different porosity.
After the activation is completed, the carbon product is crushed.
Some sorption filters contain aluminum silicates, zeolites, and their derivatives as absorbers. Such porous materials effectively purify water, but they do not belong to coals.
Where is the water filter on Keurig 2.0 K200?
The purpose of the water filters is to purify filtered water, firstly, from large particles (sand, rust, hair). Secondly, from the chemistry called chlorine, as well as from magnesium and calcium, the list can be continued indefinitely.
Calcium has a very detrimental effect on heating elements. At temperatures above 60 ° C, metals begin to turn into an insoluble precipitate. All these formations further complicate the passage of fresh water.
A clogged thermoblock with calcium inevitably leads to the repair of a coffee machine in our company.
The presence of impurities is easy to detect by a simple method. Pour a little water into the pan, bring to a boil. If a white plaque forms on the walls, you have a direct road to the store for a new filter and not only for the coffee machine.

If you use bottled water or you have a good built-in filter, then you have nothing to worry about.
We strongly recommend using quality filtered water. Everyone determines the level of quality for himself, especially the size of his wallet.
As a rule, most of the best manufacturers use coconut shell chips as a water filters, as an environmentally friendly and effective material and activated carbon, and ion exchange resin as a water softener.
In appearance, ion–exchange resin is a cluster of small balls (up to 1 mm in diameter), which are produced from polymer materials.
Anyone who has never encountered this material can easily confuse resin with fish roe.
There are also options for using polymer materials and compressed wood corner as a filters.
