I have a Gaggia Evo and am using Cleancaf to descale the system. I was working from home and decided to clean my machine between meetings. I got tied up and forgot about the machine for a few hours and left cleancaf in it during that time. I flushed the machine with 2 full clean water cycles and disassembled the basic group head compenents and cleaned them (like I normally do). Is leaving the descaler in the machine for that extended period of time going to harm it?
Cleancaf is pretty acidic, and not really recommended to descale aluminum boiler machines like the Evolution. That being said, you just want to make sure that you run a lot of water through it and make sure that it's not leaking. You should be alright, but if not, please give us a call at 1-888-411-5282, option 3. 11-01-13 04:21PM
Interesting...Cleancaf was recommended to descale the machine. I am getting some dripping from the group now, although I think that was happening before, which is what prompted me to clean it. 11-01-13 04:21PM
