Could someone explain how to descale the R58 please without the faff of disconnecting the water level thingy. I understand part of the process ie mix citric acid fill water reservoir with descaling solution run hot water tap on machine and group head to get solution into the machine. My problem is the steam wand if you switch the machine on with the steam valve open it doesn't produce any water just steam as the boiler heats up. Hoping someone can help, thanks.
I have a tub of BB citric acid I'm planning of giving the Andreja boiler a good clear out. I've removed the heating element and was planning on filling it up the boiler manually via this and leaving it for a few hours. Once it's done it's work I was simply going to flip it over and let the descaler just run out the bottom of the boiler then manually flush it out with clean water before screwing the heating element back in. It there a better way to do this that avoids splashing citric acid all over the machine or me? Any Advice? Also the citric acid is from BB is several years old does this make a difference, does it go off with age. How much citric acid to water? I was guessing 60g to 1 litre of water.
