Built to last for 20+ years, given a certain TLC and each third year a service, the machine is well suited for light commercial usage as well as home and will sneak underneath of your countertop as well. You can plumb it into your fresh water line or use a 5 gallon jar with a little pump. In any case, water quality matters.
