Superior performance in all water conditions

Cost of scale in hard water

  • In high TDS water, machines need to be descaled far more frequently, costing as much as $200 per visit
  • Reverse osmosis is an expensive alternative to frequent descaling
  • Neglecting descaling can significantly shorten equipment life

How does Horizon Elite remove TDS?

  • The incoming water at the front of the evaporator forces high TDS water to the reservoir at the back of the machine where it's expelled in small volume flushes
  • The result is high quality ice with a fraction of the water that cube ice machines use.
