  1. I have a Sage Dual Boiler BES920UK and it needs descaling. I have run through the process up to opening the 2 valves at the front to let the water drain from the boilers. But when I tighten those screws back up again and press Manual, I get the valv error message. I can't seem to get past this. When starting this descaling process, the machine was cold, if that makes any difference. Any ideas? Thanks, Jon
  2. I live in a very hard water area - TDS of 312 when measured just now with a TDS meter. That level of water hardness would kill an espresso machine without very regular - too regular - descaling. I've been using different makes of bottled water - Volvic (TDS of about 110) and I've settled on Asda Eden Falls which has a TDS of about 80. I've measured and confirmed the label TDS measurements with a TDS meter. A TDS of 80 is not soft and will lead to scale build up although with gentle descaling (? citric acid) I'm hoping its not too bad. I'm putting the bottled water through a Brita jug filter and I can get the TDS down from 80 to 74 by doing that. It's such a small amount that it's hardly worth doing. Oddly, the Brita filter can remove about 100 TDS from the tap water to bring it down to about 210 TDS but it has much less of an impact on the bottled water and can even increase the TDS of some types of bottled water (I assume it's something to do with potassium but I'm completely ignorant on these things). Question is - if I don't want to use an artificial water softener (and I really don't), what's the best way of getting not too hard water for use in a heat exchanger espresso machine? I want to get a decent balance between taste and the need for descaling and I don't want to spend too much money on a solution. Asda Eden Falls works out at less than half the cost of Volvic so it may be my best option given that there's no way I can use tap water with a TDS of 312 (or even 210 after a Brita filter has done its thing). The other thing is that when I have briefly tried using hard water tap water (as an experiment) the coffee really did taste far superior to softer water coffee
  3. I had been interested in an alexia evo but on checking the manual the company do not encourage or give instructions for descaling and I suspect it would invalidate the warranty They suggest using softened water and you shouldn’t need to descale. what do others do? do you use volvic or alternative or use water filters or just descale regardless? Am thinking of moving from a bean to cup to a fairly future proof machine and thought the alexia looked a good option Thanks for any advice on this
  4. Hi all, I just bought a brand new De'Longhi coffee machine after my old one died on me. I always had problems descaling that one. What's the best way to do it in your opinion? Do you have any recommendations?I'd appreciate your tips!
  5. Hi, I received a Sage Barista Express for Christmas, Father Christmas was finally good to me; it has gone on " Clean Me" mode once since then, it has been cleaned once as per instructions and it is now coming to 40Lt use, I'm thinking about changing the ClaroSwiss filter for the first time as per instructions. So, I'm thinking about descaling the coffee machine before changing to the new £14.95 water filter and I have a few questions I hope you clever people can answer for me. Do I leave ClaroSwiss water filter in place while I descale the coffee machine? the instruction manual doesn't mention this step so I'm assuming you leave it on but not sure; Will leaving the water filter on not reduce the effectiveness of the descaling agent? Do you people leave it on or remove it? I live in South Somerset and water is very hard and not going down the bottled water route as trying to cut on plastic; I descale our kettle every other month, that's how hard our water is. Should the coffee machine be descaled as often as that? those of you living in hard water regions, How often do you do it? Any other cleaning and descaling tips you can think of? Too many questions, I know, but keen to get it right. So far very happy with the results ...best coffee I've ever had at home. Thank you for your help.
  6. Sorry for asking such a daft question. I'll be performing my first descaling and would rather not buy Sage's overpriced descaler. Out of these 3 what are people using and recommending ? Dezcal, Durgol or Puly Descaler ? Thanks
  7. hi all People on here were super helpful with problems a couple of years back, so posting again.. I recently descaled my Gaggia Baby (after leaving it a bit too long for a hard water area). It was fine before the descaling. The descaling went fine, but now I have an issue with almost no water flow through the filter holder apparatus. It will just about make a coffee, but takes about 5 minutes instead of 5 seconds, and I'm worried it will give up altogether. Water seems to be escaping back into the water reservoir, as you can see bubbling in it as the machine is straining to produce a few drops of coffee. What to do? Thanks :-)
  8. Hi At the weekend I descaled my Gaggia Classic as it was coming up for 3 months since last time. I've had the machine from new for about four years and regularly descale. However, after this last time I am now no longer getting anywhere near the pressure I need for it to push a cup of coffee through. Does anyone know what might be the problem? Just to note, a few days previously I removed the piece you remove with an Allen key to clean it and it worked fine after that so I don't THINK it has to do with that. Would really appreciate any help or advice to get my little machine back to good Health!
  9. My Melitta Varianza is telling me "descaling needed". 1. I'm confused as to why this is, I used the supplied water hardness test and it barely even registered on the softest water setting. Also, I know we have ultra soft water as the technician (when installing our instrument autoclaves) said we don't need any sort of filter as the water in Aberdeen is very soft. 2. What should I use for descaling purposes now? 3. What do I do now to prevent the need for descaling in the future?
  10. Hi, I've been looking into buying a Piccino, but could someone please advise on how easy (or more likely difficult) these machines are to clean and maintain? So far from reading, there is no difinitive answer on how to descale Fracino machines, other than sending them back to manufacturer. And as a complete novice, how do I properly look at a second hand machine before buying to see that it has been properly cleaned and cared for? Thanks in advance!
  11. I have had my Duo Temp Pro for a while now and really like it. However I am not so happy with the overly expensive original cleaner agents for backflushing and descaling. Water filters as well. Are there any alternatives to these? Preferably some that use the same chemicals so the machine won't be harmed in any way / so the warranty is not affected. //Rasmus
  12. I contacted Fracino and was told I never have to descale my machine. I find this hard to believe. Has anyone descaled their retro and how did you go about this?
  13. Hi, I've just found ANOTHER Izzo Pompei 2 groups going really cheap. It's a dual power/fuel model. I haven't seen it yet but going to collect it later this week. The person said that it's been "condemned" due to scale. Apparently, it's been used without a filter. Apart from that (and on the photograph I can see that the gauge is stuck somewhere in the territory where it shouldn't be - far right!) it seems to be in a good condition. The seller said that the pressurestat is not switching the machine off, so I can only imagine that it got completely scaled up and that it doesn't function anymore. Should I take it? Would I need to take the enitire boiler off or could I descale it in-situ? It's only £300 and would be great in my holiday home. Thanks, Martin
  14. I've searched and found the below thread.... http://coffeeforums.co.uk/showthread.php?1672-How-to-descale-a-Gaggia-Classic just wanted to check that this is still the best approach. With regards to back flushing: - is there a guide - should it be done / is it necessary? thanks Paul
  15. 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.
  16. Just wanted to share my experience with the first issue I have had with my Profitec Pro 700. I did my second descaling a week ago and a few days later I found the maonometer for the steam boiler had frozen at 0.65 bar. Initially I thought the manometer had a defect and I was just about to email the shop I bought it from but decided to have a closer look at the issue. I took the sidepanel off and detached the cables for the power switch and lamp to get access to the manometer. I took of the capillary tube and instantly the needle went to zero bar. I removed the tube completely and with a thin needle I could feel some resistance in the boiler end of the tube. I was able to get the scale removed aided by pressurized air. The inner diameter of the tube is extremely small and I guess the descaling doesn't have much effect in this area as the water isn't forced through this tube. I hope this can be of help to anyone experiencing the same issue.
  17. I have a Jura A9 automatic. Yes I know, but it's the perfect balance between ease and coffee which tastes great to me. I've owned it for a month now and it's time to give it a clean and descale. Jura obviously recommend their own (costly) cleaning tablet, descaling tablets and milk cleaner solution. Do I have to use their products? Or is there a cheaper recommended brand which will be just as effective and unlikely to be found voiding any warranties?
  18. Hi, I have a ~2003 Gaggia Baby. I've just hit a problem whereby no water (or very little most of time) is coming out of the group head. I've removed the shower screen and plate. The steam wand IS working, and when switched on the pump vibrates, and seems to suck water up, but then push it back down an "overflow" on the RHS of the machine back into the water receptacle. The shower plate/screen was last cleared a week ago, along with my first backflush. The machine has never (!) been descaled, but nor have I noticed issues with the machine being used 1-4 times per day, every day. I've not ventured further into the innards yet, but this has to be the next step as perhaps there's a blockage dislodged by cleaning? The "happy donkey" site sells a pump and more importantly indicates replacement is relatively easy, so I'm hoping investigation is simple too.
  19. Hi everyone, my R58 is coming up for some descaling. Would any kind soul like to talk me through the process and recommend the product I should use? I have so far just used tap water, but think I'll revert to volvic which seems to be the mineral water of choice, so as to minimise having to do the descaling process! As always, thanks for any advice offered.
  20. I have a couple of questions regarding the use of plumbed in filtered softened water. First, the story:- I recently plumbed in my Profitec 700 using a BWT Bestmax Premium filter. Previously, for a period of 10 weeks I used Brita jug filtered water; splashes, on the drip tray and the front facia, dried leaving a white/grey lime stain which was easily removed by wiping with a soft ctoth. My water supply is hard or very hard (depends on which web-site one is looking at); local water supplier informs me that my water has a hardness of 301 ppm equivalent CACO3; a Calmag drop test produces a result of 400 ppm hardness. The BWT Filter Head has a bypass control which is set according to the hardness of the water supply; 0 is the setting, with no bypass, for very hard water and then 1,2 and 3 depending on the softness of the supply water. Both the above values of hardness required a setting of 1 in my situation. When I ran this filtered water through the Profitec for the first time the water issuing both from the brew boiler and the water/steam boiler was cloudy (weak white colour). A check on the water issuing from the BWT Filter Flushing Valve produced crystal clear water. Obviously the residue of ten weeks Brita jug water was being flushed out of the Profitec I set the Filter Head bypass to 0 (softest output) and flowed water through both boilers (fill, heat, empty as much as possible the water/steam boiler by heat pressure; pump water through brew boiler) till the water ran clear. It needed 7 L. of water for the brew boiler and 3 L. for the water/steam boiler. I noticed that the dried splashes when using the Filter Head bypass set to 0 (Calmag drop test hardness = 80 ppm), were almost invisible. Unfortunately the coffee was lacking..... With the bypass set to 1 (Calmag hardness = 100ppm) the coffee is fine. But the dried splashes are now clearly visible. And now my questions: “Do I ever need to descale the machine?” “What do commercial users do?”
  21. A lot of the time, there seems to be many people that weigh in with the opinion "ohhh no, I wouldn't use that to descale an espresso machine". And, basically, I wondered why...? Whilst I was descaling a machine after a full strip down I used very strong citric (Dezcal) solutions, 4x the recommended dosage at one point. My reasoning was that the regular recipe was for day to day descaling, and I was getting rid of heavy scale. The parts that I descaled in this solution suffered zero adverse effects. I also immersed a group head completely in a similar solution, which did not damage the chrome (although it was to have the chrome removed anyway). At various times I have heard that phos descaled is too aggressive (although recommended by people on here who restore machines for a living) that you shouldn't use vinegar (I can understand the taste implications there), that you should be extra careful with an aluminium boiler.... Does any of it have any reasoning behind it or is it just peoples guess work?
  22. How often do you guys descale the silvia? Also, would you recommend a particular product? There seems to be quite a mixed opinion on this...
  23. I've bought some Puly "Cleaner/Descaler" to descale my Gaggia Classic. Bought it from Happy Donkey, who sell it as "Puly Baby" and sells is as "not a citrus based descaler". However, the ingredients are: "citric acid, malic acid, sodium citrate". Does anyone have long-term experience whether this causes problems with the aluminium boiler? Would Gaggia own-brand descaler be better? (recommended by the instructions booklet; no surprise) Does anyone know whether that is essentially the same thing as the Puly, or is it based on different chemicals? Thanks
  24. I'm after a bit of advice please. Living in Essex the water is so hard I have to chisel it out of the tap. As a consequence I Brita filter and frequently descale my machine. If I follow the instructions on the Seattle Coffee Gear site it takes me 8 hours to descale my Rocket. Frankly - Life is to short!!!! I think I'm going to plumb in my machine and I am giving serious consideration to installing an Everpure ES06 cartridge ( http://www.omniwash.co.uk/warewashing/product/Everpure-ES06-Cartridge/902/32/). I have 2 questions.... Firstly, if I install this how frequently should I descale afterwards? Secondly, can anyone suggest a better product for a similar price that will reduce the frequencies of me having to descale? I want to make the right purchase first time.
  25. Hi, I just descaled my Gaggia new Baby '06 with a bottle of Gaggia descaler. Now, unfortunately, I can't steam any more. There's plenty of hot water coming through, but absolutely no steam. The steam button on the front panel isn't working properly any more either: it pops out when pressed but the light stays on. I guess this indicates that the steam function should be working. What does one do when there's apparently no repair service anywhere in the country you're living in? I sincerely hope that one of you can help me out :-)
