The right water is crucial to the taste of your coffee because coffee consists in fact of 98% water. Limescale build up causes your coffee machine equipment downtime leading to increased machine service, more part replacements and a shortened coffee machine lifespan.
Limescale build-up also reduces the quality of your coffee flavour. Increase coffee machine reliability by descaling your coffee machine regularly to get the most out of your equipment.
Hardness in water can cause limescale deposits. This occurs when a build-up of mineral deposits forms a noticeable white crust on the heating element.
The build-up of limescale increases the amount of energy required to heat the water, resulting in more repairs and eventually shortening the lifespan of your coffee machine equipment.
Once limescale has formed in the boiler and pipes, it can only be removed by the use of specific acidic descaling chemicals.
