Here in the Uk, even bottled water has a BBE ... but that's the bottle's fault as the plastic starts to leach chemicals into the water after a certain point.

When I was involved in industrial ink jet printers customers assumed that the BBE on teh ink cartridges was to make us more money - and they did due to a process called "flocculation" which caused the pigment to clump up and block filters in the print head which then had to be scrapped and replaced at a serious cost ...* Big Grin | :-D

* I did fit a replaceable filter between the ink cartridge and the head which filtered out 5 micron particles to save the "last ditch" 10 micron head filter, but ignore it for too long and flocculation would occur in the head itself and stuff it right up. Particularly if you didn't replace the cartridge filter when recommended.
