DeLonghi Coffee and Espresso Machine Descaling Liquid
DeLonghi EcoDecalk is a lactic acid based, biodegradable and safe descaler that breaks down lime scale and calcium deposits. DeLonghi EcoDecalk is safe and easy to use – it’s as simple as brewing a cup of coffee.
Mineral scale in your hot water tank can clog water flow and negatively affect brew temperature – this results in beverage inconsistency. To prevent your machine from clogging and breaking down, your beverage equipment should be descaled regularly.
- DeLonghi EcoDecalk is a safe option for removing lime scale build-up in your machine.
- DeLonghi EcoDecalk can be used on home coffee brewers, espresso machines (traditional and automatic), kettles, pod and capsule machines.
- For best results, use quarterly (water hardness in your area may require more or less frequent descaling)
- Mix product at a 1:10 descaler to water ratio for best results. One 500ml bottle is good for approximately 4-descalings of your DeLonghi super-automatic espresso machine.
Why should I use DeLonghi EcoDecalk?
When limescale in your hot water tank builds up, it can clog water flow and affect brew temperature, leading to beverage inconsistency. DeLonghi EcoDecalk is designed to break down limescale and mineral build-up inside your machine to ensure great, consistent coffee.
How often should I descale my Espresso machine?
We recommend descaling your machine every 3 months; however, this may vary based on water hardness in your area. For areas with hard water, we recommend descaling as often as once a month to maintain your equipment.
How does vinegar compare to using DeLonghi EcoDecalk?
Vinegar is a weak acid that does not effectively break down limescale build-up in comparison to DeLonghi EcoDecalk. DeLonghi EcoDecalk breaks down even the toughest limescale and mineral deposit build-up without the excessive rinsing needed when using vinegar. Vinegar is not recommended by espresso machine manufacturers as it will damage the internal components.
