The Gaggia classic does not come with the ability to use a water filter

Bohdanna asked:

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?

Answer by Maggie:

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.

Wendy asked:

How long is the filter good for?

Answer by 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.

Jeffrey asked:

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

Answer by Maggie:

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.

Beata asked:

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.

Answer by Maggie:

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.

Answer by techkathy:

Beata - Unfortunately there is not a substitute or alternative filter available. Click on the link below for the Rinza milk frother cleaner

Barbara asked:

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.

Answer by Maggie:

Brita pitchers and filters remove the more harmful minerals from your water and reduce the level of calcium (which causes scale). They would be an equivalent level of filtration as the Mavea Intenza filter, and your machine will work with no issues with or without the filter, so long as you descale it when necessary.

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?

They would be an equivalent level of filtration as the Mavea Intenza filter, and your machine will work with no issues with or without the filter, so long as you descale it when necessary.

Brian asked:

Does this product fit an Evolution? How do I install it?

Answer by Mary Ann:

It does not fit the Gaggia Evolution.

rod asked:

Will the inteva filter fit the Saeco Vienna Superautomatica SUP 018 ?

Answer by techkathy:

Unfortunately these filters sill not fit on the Vienna.

Jason asked:

Is this the filter for the Gaggia Titanium?

Answer by techkathy:

The Mavea Intenza filters do not fit in the Gaggia Titanium.

MaryaL asked:

Does this work for Platinum Vogue? It looks completely different than the filter it came with.

Answer by techkathy:

The Mavea Intenza filters will work in the Gaggia Platinum Vogue.

Hi: I am waiting for my new Gaggia Brera to arrive, my very first espresso machine, yeah. I'd like to know if I need a filter or if the filtered water out of the refrigerator is sufficient? Looking forward to your answer!

Answer by A:

Maria,
The filtration is essentially the same, so you should be ready to do with the water from your refrigerator. However, if you get a funky smell/taste from that water (as many refrigerators do), then the Intenza filter would filter your tap water very well and give you a great shot!

Anna asked:

Hi, I've just purchased Gaggia Brera, my order is still processing. This is my first espresso machine and I'm wondering if I needed to include this filter in my order. We use filtered water for cooking and drinking, the filter is installed under the sink in the kitchen. Do I still need to use Mavea filter in my new Brera? And how can I test my water? Thank you.

Answer by A:

Anna,

If you are using a filtered water system in your home, there is no need to use a filter within the machine. It is designed to do the same thing that your home filter is already doing for you!

Answer by Anna:

Thanks!

David asked:

Will the Mavea Itenza Water Filter work in the Gaggia Syncrony Compact tank, I believe the tank is called a Saeco Charisma Water Tank...??

Answer by mjackson:

I am sorry it will not fit. Just keep up on the descaling as I am sure you are.
