I thought that Pur/Britas filters didn't do much in that line as they are primarily activated carbon filters and activated carbon doesn't "grab" mitigate the major things that cause scale. They're primarily activated carbon filters, and I thought that those didn't grab calcium or magnesium cations.
I don't know if it should
make a difference, but it seems to. We had to get a filter because we kept getting notices from the city that the water was too high in something or other (I don't remember what) and they suggested filtering it or boiling it before drinking. Fun, huh? Anyway, when I started to use the filter water, it took a bit longer to show the scale in the Zo (nothing phenomenal, but I could tell a difference - it gave me about 2 more weeks before a big descaling was needed) and now I've started using the filter and rinsing it out every night and that's made a big difference to what it was before (though I've only been doing that since my last descaling a couple of weeks ago, but by this time with no filtered water and no rinsing, I'd be planning to descale over the weekend. Now I figure I have another two weeks, maybe more depending on how it goes).
The Zo makes me realize how truly nasty our water is even though it doesn't seem to taste it. But then, if I'm not drinking bottled water, I get it from the fridge and that's filtered, too.
