Mavea Intenza Water Filter for Gaggia and Saeco
Mavea Intenza Water Filter for Gaggia and Saeco

I purchased a Gaggia Accademia a couple of months ago and absolutely love it. Recently the symbol came up 'decalcification'. My helpful husband (who never reads instructions) poured the entire decalcifier (which came with the machine) into the water tank without taking the filter out first. Now .... I have washed and rinsed out the tank a few times .... but is this enough? Does this filter get thrown out and I replace it? Or does anything else have to be done?

Maggie M It should be discarded and replaced. When you descale the machine with the filter inside of it, it keeps and holds some of the descaling solution like it would with any mineral content or other impurities.

mjackson ♦ Do you mean in use , or when it expires before being opened. It will last as long as it says in instructions which is based on use and water hardness. In the box it really does not expire.

Maggie M You should change it every 3 months, and absolutely remove it from the machine when you descale.

Will this filter work with a Gaggia Evolution? Do the tubes connect to it and it sits in the tank?

Maggie M This will not work with your Gaggia Evolution-they unfortunately do not make a water filter that will work with the Evolution at this time.

Is there another comparable but less expensive filter for the Gaggia Accademia? Reading the reviews, there are different less expensive options for the decalcifier. The reviews seem to confirm that they all work pretty well. Can anyone confirm? Also, help with the milk carafe cleaner please. I can't seem to find it.

Maggie M I apologize, we do not have any other available filters for the Gaggia Accademia-I believe that this is the only one currently available overall for Gaggia machines. The milk carafe cleaner you are looking for is the Urnex Rinza, which can be found here: http://www.wholelattelove.com/Urnex/urn_rinza.cfm The manual for the Accademia talks about a powder packet, but those are not available in the United States, and the Rinza is a perfect substitute.

I understand from the other comments that an in-reservoir filter is unnecessary if I start with filtered water. Just to make sure: does that mean that using water from my Britta pitcher to fill the reservoir is sufficient? If not sufficient, I suppose I would still need the Mavea filter.

I understand from the comments here that an in-reservoir filter is unnecessary if I start with filtered water. Just to make sure: does that mean that something like a Britta filter is sufficientin other words that filling the reservoir with water from my Britta pitcher will do? Or do you mean a different kind of filtering, in which case perhaps I would still want a Mavea?
