I have a Gaggia Classic. Although I have a sediment filter and UV filter, as well as running the water through a Brita before pouring into the machine, I recently noticed the telltale signs of iron bacteria in the reservoir. What product to you recommend for the iron in the water, as well as general cleaning and descaling?
OK, this ones really off the wall. My shipment of Gaggia Descaller has been trying to get delivered since last Friday, the 11th of January. It's now Tuesday the 15th. The outdoor temperature hasn't been above 25 degrees all this time and the lows have been as low as -15. Is the Gaggia Descaller affected by freezing temperatures?
Our well water is conditioned by a water softening system and we run that through a Brita pitcher before pouring into our Gaggia Brera. Do we really need to descale when the light goes on? The manual says the light goes on as a function of the volume of water that's been run through the machine - it doesn't seem to take the hardness of the water into account.
I despirately need to clean my Gaggia Baby Twin. The portafilter has gotten pretty gross and I'm concerned the solenoid valve seat and pintle are also nasty. Which of the two cleaners do you recomend. I use only reverse osmosis filtered water so scale shouldn't be much of an issue, but the coffee "residue" in the above mentioned parts may be.
Hello! I'm wondering if I should use this or the gaggia/urnex tablets through my Gaggia Brera. It has been kept clean behind the doors/in the drip tray, but hasn't ever been descaled, in 1.5yrs. Are solutions/tablets for different purposes - such as backflushing/descaling? *Sometimes I think I can sniff a slight mold buildup even after flushing out the steam wand, which might have happened when my parents left poor B sitting unused for 6 months :(
Can you tell me how many "servings per container" on this? Just want to know how many I should order. Thanks!
I would ask if the Decalcifier is good enough for a Gaggia Classic. I heard tha perhaps it's tu agressiv for the machine. it's true ?
thank you in advance
