I just received my Krups XP5220 espresso machine and it did not have a Claris water filter in it. Is it supposed to have one??? Called company and they said yes but not sure.
Based on the information available to us, this model does not include a Claris water filter with it. The part is an optional accessory. Additionally, Page 2 of the manual reads "To prolong the life of your machine, we recommend you use a Claris Aqua Filter System F088 cartridge (accessory not included) and that you descale the machine at regular intervals," confirming this.
