I have recently installed a mirror setup to ours (Synesso, Fetco, HW Dispensers, etc.) in one of our nearby wholesale accounts (without proper water, albeit filtered for turbidity, and dechlorinated, with 8 grains hardness),
The maximum level of hardness should be no more than 5 grains (85 ppm) any higher you risk equipment issues. There are a few other parameters like alkalinity (temporary hardness) that come into play when higher than 80 ppm in combination with high hardness. The water standard that we recommend is below.
TDS 150ppm (100-200)
Hardness 5 grains (3-5)
Alch 40 ppm (40-80)
PH 7 ph (6-8)
No chlorine, no iron ,no odors ,clear in color

please post! it's a classic coffeed opportunity if i ever saw one.
i'm aware calcite has its shortcomings, but when your water is so consistently soft it washes dishes, then even irregular, ph-dependent mineralization is an improvement, taste-wise.
