ELECTRIC TESTING
RESIN-BASED SOFTENER
Calcium and magnesium determine the hardness of water and cause the formation of what
is known as scale.
Installing an epoxy-resin water softener helps
prevent the formation of scale. Regenerate the
softener periodically with the appropriate salt or
Na Cl ( sodium chloride) coarse table salt .
Water is hard between 30° and 40° ; it is considered very hard above 40° . Water hardness is
measured by means of simple test kits that can
be purchased at any of our repair service centres. Follow their easy instructions for use( it is
recommended on models connected to the
water line )
In models with internal reservoir, replace
the cartridge immersed in the water every
600/800 cups of coffee. (always check water hardness, as parameters vary).
