Hello,

Any thoughts on whether to run plain city water or filtered water to a kettle steam condenser?

Thanks,
Sean

I don't think it really matters, other then maybe mineral build up, ??

That's what I figured. I don't see how water could make it's way into the kettle. The mineral build is a concern I have though.
Thanks for your input :)

That's what I would think to, good luck Sean, On most vent condensing systems in just lite spray, below the 180 elbow.

Yes , The water would have to travel up and over the bend which isnt going to happen on a properly designed system. Plus the cold water spray actually created a negative pressure which aids in pulling the steam from the kettle so Ive been told.
