From time-to-time we have customers who upgrade their machines and we take their equipment in part-exchange.
In the south of the UK, the mains water is very hard which causes limescale and damage to equipment, especially espresso machines.
Our CTU systems utilise a food grade ion exchange media and a 5 micron carbon block final filter. This combination meets the highest standards for the taste and odour requirements for food and potable water applications. In hard water areas a CTU is essential to help minimise costly service bills and to help minimise machine break downs.
We have produced our own short video to help you with the daily cleaning of your espresso machine.
You will need a few simple tools, including a pallo (cleaning) brush and de-tanning powder, and just a few minutes of your time. Doing this cleaning routine every day (plus a few interim back-washes) will keep your machine clean, hygienic, and will help minimise future service bills caused by things like blockages, wear and damage to rubber seals, and scale build up (but make sure you also read the information on our Water Treatment units).
